Quirky Soho Loft With Honey-Comb Skylight Sells for $2.15 Million After 6 Months on the Market

June 10, 2014

After more than half a year on the market, the Broome Street co-op with an interesting honey-comb skylight has finally sold for $2.155 million.

There’s no doubt 428 Broome Street #1R is an interesting unit, even for a building constructed in 1879. The Soho loft has all the tell-tale signs of an older reconstruction with exposed brick walls, 16’ ceilings and an open floor plan – one that features 1,765 square feet of open floor space. However, the cast iron Corinthian columns and the honey-comb skylight give the loft an almost medieval vibe. The result is an interesting contrast to Soho’s typical industrial architecture.

However, new owner John Giroux clearly appreciates the loft’s unique quality. The apartment has two large mezzanine spaces on either side of it, adding 700 square feet of space to the already sizable space. The current floor plan is a 2,452-square-foot, 1BR/1BA residence with a home office, however the flexible floor plan allows for a number of possibilities.

The loft also has a kitchen that is open to the massive great room, and a large master bathroom. Another hidden perk this loft has up its sleeve is apparently “excessively large” closets, according to its listing agents Amalia Daskalakis and Gabriella Winter. We’re not sure what that means but in a city where your wall becomes extra closet space, we’ll take “excessively large” closets any day. The Corcoran agents expect that the loft will transport you to another place in time, something Mr. Giroux will undoubtedly experience… unless he decides to overhaul the whole thing. The building, converted in 1979 also has basement storage and although we’re not sure if it’s an “excessive” amount.

The closing price of $2.155 is a little below the initial asking price of $2.45 million.
