Behold, 2,700 glorious square feet of authentic artist loft, located in the middle of Soho on the corner of Crosby and Grand Streets. The open interior is decked out with soaring 14-foot ceilings, cast iron columns, exposed brick and six massive side-by-side wood framed factory windows. The fashion photographer and filmmaker Greg Kadel purchased the home in 2005 for $1.73 million, according to public records. And now the co-op has been listed for $3.895 million.
138 Grand Street
This $4.75 million Soho loft at 138 Grand Street–in one of the neighborhood’s original artists’ co-op buildings–is an authentic 1977 conversion that’s completely updated for today’s live/work demands. The Ironclad Artists’ loft building is a six-story icon with a rich architectural history that’s significant to the neighborhood, distinguishable by features like a cast iron facade and a mansard roof. Within, this fifth-floor home is quiet and serene while also surrounded by the heart of Soho.
We’re seeing a lot of downtown live/work lofts on the market lately, and we can’t help but wonder whether longtime artist-inhabitants are moving on to better things, but we’re guessing they’re cashing in on the cachet of loft living. And if you’ve ever drooled over these huge and versatile spaces, this 1,200 square-foot co-op at 138 Grand Street will definitely put stars in your eyes.
