Artists looking for a place to work and play will love this two-loft combo at 361 West 36th Street. The industrial chic apartment is the ideal live/work setup with 4,800 square feet of space. It’s a full-floor flexible combination of two units and comes complete with a darkroom and more than enough legroom to get your creative juices flowing. And with so many possibilities, this loft is the perfect canvas for a creative person looking to put their personal stamp on a premier pad.
A keyed elevator takes you to your own personal hallway with two separate entrances to either loft. Inside loft A you’ll find two full baths, movable room dividers, and beautiful custom bookcases. This is the apartment with the darkroom, a pretty brilliant use of an interior space in our opinion. There’s also a laundry room, storage room, and office space with an entrance into apartment B.
Apartment B also has two full baths, but it’s a much more open, airy space. This apartment has a couple of storage rooms and an office as well. Both apartments have a kitchen and a bedroom; however, unit B has the windowed chef’s kitchen, while unit A has the more spacious, windowed bedroom. And if light is a determining factor for deciding which space is better suited for your art, you’re out of luck… because both apartments feature a 50-foot wall of windows flooding the spaces with natural sunlight.
Artists are invited to make this pad their own creative oasis, with options ranging from converting one of the lofts to a studio or income suite, to combining the spaces for one mega apartment. But whatever this loft’s destiny, one thing is for sure: someone is going to have a field day personalizing this enormous space.
