Artists seem to find inspiration everywhere, often taking even the simplest of ideas and turning them into striking masterpieces. Well, whoever winds up living in this rare full-floor artists loft at 144 Franklin Street in Tribeca will hit the inspiration jackpot. Norwegian architectural firm Tupelo has indeed turned its simple industrial form replete with massive cast iron columns, beamed ceilings, hand-oiled maple floors, and custom oversized double-glazed windows into a beautiful work of art.
This stunning, 3,000-square-foot, three-bedroom loft was created for-and-by artists, which is evident the moment you step from the key-locked elevator through the original factory door and witness the seamless combination of spectacular modern design with Tribeca’s industrial history.

Surely ready to rest her bones after a whirlwind tour with Eminem, Rihanna was recently spotted scoping out the 10th floor at the Enrique Norten-designed One York in Tribeca. According to the Post, the pop star toured the luxurious $18 million listing along with her personal assistant and entourage. The 10th floor is currently made up of three units—which means a bit of work is required to adapt the space for the celeb—but when combined, the apartment will be a monstrous 5,350-square-foot floor-through home with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.

It’s time to get lost in a sprawling 3,525-square-foot loft in Tribeca’s esteemed Tower 270 condominium. We imagine being located in a prestigious white-glove building with three brand new gyms, a children’s playroom, and a landscaped roof deck is a pretty big selling point on its own. However, apartment #11F is next-level elite. The $9.6 million unit has the mark of P & T Interiors founder Pol Theis, who created a sumptuous modern loft ideal for lavish entertaining, comfortable living, and—if you read the wallpaper—a little educational supplementing.

It’s not very often that we show you an unfurnished listing, but we were so drawn to this duplex penthouse in the stunning Bazzini Building that we decided to break the rules. This 4,000-square-foot quintessential Tribeca loft is a buyer’s dream with exposed brick walls and giant windows, but it’s not looking to blend in with the rest of the inventory in Tribeca. This loft embraces its unique side with barrel-vaulted ceilings and arched windows framed in chestnut.

If you’re thinking how nice it would be to leave the office at the end of a long day and stroll down a quaint cobblestone street to your beautiful Tribeca loft, you’re in the right spot. Because today we’re going to take a look at a residence inside Tribeca’s Cobblestone Lofts.
The former site of a 19th century warehouses, the four red-brick buildings that make up the Cobblestone Lofts was once owned by Trinity Episcopal Church. However, in 2001 CMS Design architect Chris Smith came through and converted the buildings into 32 condominiums. It appears it was during this time that the current owners snatched up unit 3A, so we’re feeling pretty lucky for the chance to take a peek inside the 3,300-square-foot gem nearly 13 years later.
Let’s take a look inside…
It probably seems odd for a New York apartment to spark visions of Scarlet O’Hara walking down a staircase. And where is this apartment? It’s not in Brooklyn, or even on the Upper East Side. Ladies and gentlemen you are in Tribeca, where developer and homeowner Gizman Abbas decided to forgo the typical warehouse look in favor of a more palatial, classic look inspired by a trip to Versailles. And if you’re not fascinated by the old world details, let us remind you that just because a home looks like the backdrop for a period piece, doesn’t mean it can’t be rigged with enough modern-day technology to rival Bill Gates. Because our friend Mr. Abbas has traveled to more places than just Versailles, and his cup of inspiration runneth over. It was apparently enough to convince New York attorney Tracey Anne Zaccone. According to city records, Zaccone just purchased the home for $6.7 million, and it looks like she got a steal of a deal.

How fitting that this apartment at 135 Hudson Street overlooks Beach Street. The $1.85 million Tribeca loft definitely has a beachy vibe with its distinct white cast-iron-and-wood-beamed ceilings and patch-worked hardwoods throughout. The only difference is this artist’s lair is flooded with light. Get it? We’re here all week. Well, we can thank a wall of windows, five skylights and a cupola in the center of the main room for creating this light, airy space.

In an endless attempt to maximize space in tiny New York City apartments, the lofted bed has become a popular mechanism. This usually consists of a mattress hoisted up on wooden supports, leaving just about a foot of space below the sleeper’s head and the ceiling. But in a beautiful Tribeca loft renovation, Jane Kim Design masterfully tackled this issue by lifting the entire bedroom volume only slightly off the ground, encasing it in an architectural glass cube, and installing cabinetry, bike storage, HVAC, and a washer/dryer beneath.
