Second Century Studios is located in a corner space on the ground floor of the Water’s Edge Condominium Tower, located at 331 Cleveland St. The CRA opened Second Century Studios in September 2017. A number of art exhibits, art classes and community events have been hosted in the space.

Second Century Studios was also created for the city to showcase some of its plans for Downtown Clearwater, including the enhancement of Coachman Park, Cleveland Street, North Marina Master Plan and Mercado/Public Plaza in the Downtown Gateway.
