While a 470-square-foot studio sounds pretty small when it comes to living space—and we certainly wouldn’t expect much in the way of storage—this $699,000 co-op at 100 West 15th Street excels in lots of unexpected ways. Sleeping lofts can be tricky—especially when they’re touted as the second floor of a “duplex” for twice the price of this unit–but in this case it works. A sizable sleeping platform with a wall of closets makes this studio look spacious rather than cell-like, and is in keeping with the Chelsea building’s industrial loft history. Finishes also have a loft aesthetic, enough to look like they belong without looking precious. And the quality of the home’s fixtures shows that whoever renovated this space meant business when it came to maximizing style and function in every square foot.

With classic industrial loft bones and downtown shabby chic interiors, this big, bold loft at 79 Worth Street in Tribeca is asking $3.1 million. At 1,909 square feet, there’s plenty of room to choose between shabby and chic, and to be fair, the decor is not only on-trend but fairly awesome.
According to records, the current owner is noted Swedish video director Johan Renck (he’s worked with everyone from David Bowie and Madonna to Karl Lagerfeld and directed episodes of “Breaking Bad”), who purchased the loft in 2009 for $1.5 million. We don’t know if he’s responsible for the apartment’s current look, but we can definitely see both a creative and a Scandinavian influence.
While keeping its turn-of-the-century industrial charm, this three-bedroom duplex loft was given an architect’s renovation, with both details and space arranged to accommodate modern family life.
The Ansonia Court Clock Factory at 420 12th Street may be a loft among the brownstones of Park Slope, but the co-op complex is a favorite in the area. A pretty central courtyard, warm-yet-industrial loft apartments and a laid-back, convenient South Slope location make homes here unique and sought-after. Residents generally put their own stamp on their own brick-clad lofts, and this three-bedroom duplex is no exception. The $1.9 million price tag does seem like a lot for the real space, and the co-op lacks the amenities of a full-service building, but people truly love the Ansonia’s charm, so we’re guessing this duplex will do pretty well.
You might not associate Carroll Gardens with industrial loft buildings, but rather with quaint brick row houses and the charming landscaped front gardens that give the neighborhood its name. But the Mill Building at 376 President Street is a fine example of the former (There’s a building by the same name in Williamsburg that was once home to supermodel Agyness Deyn, if you’re confused). Similar to Park Slope’s Ansonia Court, which so many love for its rustic, almost-gritty Brooklyn factory charm, this 55-unit former jute factory offers a rare warmth and period details unique to this kind of converted industrial building. It’s no less a modern condo though, with an elevator, parking and central A/C. This compact one-bedroom loft, asking $770,000–it last sold for $440,000 in 2012–has been updated with custom interiors that make the best of the apartment’s factory bones.
Situated squarely between Long Island City‘s waterfront towers and its burgeoning Court Square and Queens Plaza business districts, an upcoming industrially-inspired condominium named the Jackson is beginning construction work. On Friday, the New York Times unveiled pricing information for the 70,000-square-foot project, and a polished set of renderings has been published on the developer’s website. The 11-story, 54-unit project is being shepherded by a joint-venture among Charney Construction & Development, Ascent Development, and Tavros Capital.
The development site, located around the corner from MoMA PS1, was formerly occupied by a parking lot and a nondescript two-story building. Fogarty Finger, the building’s architects, have designed several other low- to mid-scale residential projects in LIC that complement the fleetingly-gritty neighborhood’s aesthetic. Here they accomplish that by using raw material such as steel, concrete, and wood, as well as oversized windows that feel like an old industrial loft building.
So we’re guessing there are several kinds of people this rental listing will appeal to. First, if you’ve been planning to film your pilot episode of “Hipster Hoarders,” your search is over. Lovers of real industrial lofts, log cabins, treehouses, birdhouses, she sheds, cowboy camping, glamping or pods in your living room: This one will go fast!
In all seriousness, this 1,400 square foot three-bedroom (or whatever room you need!) loft that’s renting for $4,600 a month might not be a bargain, but it’s a decent amount of lovely Greenpoint space. And if you’re into lofts (and assuming this is actually a legal dwelling. Or a semi-legal dwelling with good karma), the possibilities are endless. This lovely loft is in a terrific neighborhood, near the waterfront and surrounded by cafes, quirky boutiques, bars both chic and chill, the ferry, the G train, picturesque streetscapes and lots of friendly neighbors in their super-cool cowboy-treehouse lofts. We’re hoping the current tenants have found a new dream home, because clearly this listing is an invitation to Live the Dream.
One of the neighborhood’s oldest landmarks, the Saint Vincent De Paul Church at 167 North Sixth Street in Williamsburg‘s uber-trendy North Side was recently converted into 40 rental apartments known as the Spire Lofts. We know that converted churches get people’s attention at the very least–but like many historic building conversions, they can be a disappointment. The apartments here don’t try to be especially historic–but the interiors differ somewhat from the usual boilerplate rental “lofts” that tend to spring up like weeds in North Brooklyn.
The building’s recently-listed batch of two- and three-bedrooms ranges from $6,400 to $8,000 (the spoken-for one-bedrooms started at $4k), so they’re pricey. The interiors are somewhat innovative, though. The listing promises “…modern details and state-of-the-art finishes [that] blend flawlessly with expertly salvaged materials, including original exposed brick, reclaimed Heart Pine pillars and beams, arched stained glass windows, custom steel work and exceptional quirks around every corner.” On the down side, there’s no floor plan and no mention of square footage.
There’s nothing but light coming into this three-bedroom loft co-op at Ruggles House, a Gramercy Park building located at 112 East 19th Street. Ruggles House was built in 1913 as an industrial loft building with high ceilings and huge windows. When it was converted into a residential building, only two apartments were put on each of the 12 floors. The result at this particular unit is a sprawling floor plan with those old industrial interior details. It is currently on the market for $3.5 million.
Maybe we’ve just been watching too much Discovery Channel, but when you see a fun and quirky detail like a rhino head in the kitchen you can’t help but want to take a look. That’s one of the reasons we are so drawn to this industrial loft at 284 Lafayette Street, asking $4.995 million. This flexible three-to-four-bedroom loft features eight oversized windows, skylights, exposed brick, high ceilings, and original maple floors. The co-op also has enough built-ins for an expansive literary collection.
The unusual $3.84 million loft at 50 West 29th Street is sure to be a head-turner, but not necessarily for the reason you may be thinking. Oh, we know what you’re thinking. Just look at it: a 20th century industrial loft with a modern 21st century twist. Sprawling spaces that make you want to whip out your bowling shoes. Pipes for days. But what you won’t see in the architecture is the mysterious $1 million added to the price tag since it disappeared from the market last year. We’ll cast aside all judgment for a moment as we take a look at this remarkable space, because, let’s be honest, it’s a looker.
