The look is architect’s design meets artsy loft at this one-bedroom co-op in the International Tailoring Company Building at 111 Fourth Avenue in Greenwich Village. Modern finishes provide a backdrop for cool collections and funky details (like a baby blue retro Smeg refrigerator), while the overall result “exudes a refined aura of contemporary city living.” The “duplex” has a classic loft setup, meaning it’s comprised of a sleeping loft perched above the apartment’s main space.
Located at the crossroads of Greenwich Village, the East Village and Union Square, it’s not a spot for peace and quiet, but it gets top marks for supreme convenience to just about everything downtown Manhattan has to offer, which might make the $4,000 rent worthwhile. And unlike some historic loft buildings, this particular co-op offers an elevator, a doorman, laundry on every floor, and two landscaped roof decks.

The International Tailoring Company Building, located at 111 Fourth Avenue in Greenwich Village, is historic and stately from the outside, light and lofty from the inside. It’s been converted into co-op apartments, and this one-bedroom duplex is now on the market for $1.3 million. Its attributes include 13-foot ceilings, six original industrial casement windows–two of which are 10 feet tall, the other four are eight feet tall–and views of sky and the city skyline. A recent renovation brought in some modern-day luxuries as well.
See the interior
It can be tough to find the sophistication of a Manhattan apartment building and still get the open space and old-school industrial feel of a loft, but this $2.5 million, two-bedroom co-op at 111 Fourth Avenue does a great job with the best of all possible worlds.
In an amazingly convenient (though perhaps a little busy if you’re seeking a neighborhood vibe) spot at the crossroads of Greenwich Village, the East Village, and steps from Union Square, you’re getting enviable city views, finely finished interiors and building amenities like an elevator, laundry, landscaped roof decks and parking, while scoring all the open loft architecture, 1920s construction and walls of casement windows you could possibly wish for.
