There’s a new loft available in one of Soho’s most prized co-ops. 140 Thompson Street, otherwise known as the West Broadway Arches, is a beautiful early 20th century brick building with large arched windows, right on the cusp of Soho and Greenwich Village. In addition to its great location, this flexible one-bedroom unit has every detail a prospective buyer could want in a quintessential loft, all for $1.95 million.
The sunny pad gets its light from six oversized windows lining the western wall, making way for great views and enchanting sunsets. The bright space is distinguished by traditional loft characteristics like original hand-hewn beams and columns, exposed brick walls, hardwood floors and tall ceilings.
Built-in shelving along the walls offers additional storage, and an open kitchen provides easy flow for living and entertaining. The current one-bedroom layout can be reconfigured to accommodate a second bedroom and bathroom. There’s also a considerable amount of storage along with a washer and dryer.
The West Broadway Arches was built in 1903 and is one of the city’s original AIR (artist-in-residence) loft conversions. This zoning law, which was first put into effect in 1971, allows commercial lofts to be converted to residential buildings as long as there’s at least one certified artist living there. Additional co-op features include a key-locked elevator, resident super, recently repaired façade and basement storage.
