It’s rare that a listing gives you a backstory to the apartment it’s trying to sell, but that’s the case with this unit at 426 West Broadway, a condo building in Soho. Here it goes: “It literally took a year of demolition, permit wrangling, and construction to finalize this $600,000.00 renovation that saw a Pop Art-inspired bachelor pad stripped down to its 19th-century shell.” The result is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom loft apartment that now relishes its “original industrial charms,” as the listing calls it. Our opinion? It’s a big step up from a bachelor pad. The asking price comes in at $3.5 million.
