This Tribeca loft is really something. It’s located at 88 Franklin Street, a former textile factory turned commercial space. The New York Times profiled the current owner who decided to buy the commercial space and work to convert it himself into a residential loft apartment. The result, after a thorough renovation, is a modern pad with big windows and unique bathrooms.

The owner had more than 4,000 square feet of space to work with. One of the additions was six custom-made windows that span the entire 50-foot width of the apartment. Pair that with 12-foot ceilings and you’ve got one bright, airy space.

The “loft essentials” are all here: exposed ceiling beams, wood floors, exposed brick. But the apartment still has a very modern touch. One example is the kitchen with its porcelain floor tiling, mosaic wall tiles, and fancy appliances. The kitchen island is actually made from three-inch-thick marble slabs that were reclaimed from the historic Independence Mall in Philadelphia.

The bathrooms are especially cool. According to the listing, each of the four bathrooms has its own unique design — “all adorned with imaginative and unique design elements, a juxtaposition of state-of-the-art fixtures, artistic tiles and reclaimed design elements which infuse the loft with downtown soul and beauty.”

There are four bedrooms total, which also have their own kooky design. At least two of them are rocking some cool wallpaper.

And of course, what’s a giant loft apartment without a giant closet? Other special features include a 100-bottle wine cellar, custom lighting, and a stereo music system. Do you think it’s all worth its ask of $8.2 million?
