This massive six-bedroom loft in the American Thread Building at 260 West Broadway spans 3,800 square feet with 45 feet of frontage facing Tribeca Park; the converted and designer-renovated condominium’s $7 million price reflects not only its massive size, rare arched windows and covetable loft bones, but likely also its culturally significant famous past: Built in 1894, the space was once home to Duplex Sound, the studio where world-renowned musicians including Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Aretha Franklin, Earth, Wind & Fire and jazz saxophonist Paul Desmond once recorded tracks.

When the current owners of this condo at 119 North 11th Street in Williamsburg bought the two-bedroom pad five years ago, it was in need of some major TLC. Its historic bones–brick walls, beamed ceilings, and exposed piping–got lost in drab white walls and yellowed parquet floors. But after an extensive gut renovation, the apartment displays both its loft features and hip, modern additions. Now, the owners have enlisted the same broker team to sell their home for $2,985,000.

45 Crosby street, cool listings, lofts, soho

In 1978, a ragtag band of artist residents of Soho‘s 45 Crosby Street won what the New York Times called “an impressive victory.” The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development had granted the former industrial building’s title to its residents in exchange for merely the “sweat equity” of getting it up to code (estimated cost: $164,000), making it the city’s first loft building exclusively set aside for low-income artists. Now, a 2,100-square-foot loft co-op in the building, which has been home to artists ever since, is asking $3 million.

Times change, the loft remains a classic

Those details are on full display in this south-facing loft, featuring two full walls of exposed brick and original columns. Currently configured as an open layout studio filled with rustic, western decor, the space measures just over 1,000 square feet and could easily be converted into a one-bedroom by its new owners.

448 West 37th Street, The Glass Farmhouse, Midtown West

Steps away from Hudson Yards, this corner loft at 448 West 37th Street just hit the market for $1,750,000. The Midtown West building is also known as the Glass Farmhouse—a former school building that was converted to condos in 1982—and this sun-drenched unit definitely lives up to that name. Ten 12-foot windows wrap around the 1,500 square-foot open layout, which promises plenty of opportunities for customization. The unit is currently configured as a studio with a sleeping alcove above the bathroom, but the listing shows alternate plans for those who may want to build out walls and transform it into a one or two bedroom.
