This one-bedroom top-floor loft at 12 East 14th Street at Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village near Union Square has plenty merits for loft lovers. But the best bonus might be the co-op’s private 1,000-square-foot landing strip-sized roof terrace.

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.

$7.995 million might seem steep for this grand 3,600-square-foot cast iron loft at 148 Greene Street, but the Soho co-op property comes with some great perks in addition to keyed elevator access, 13-foot ceilings, and 12 massive windows. First, the space contains two units, giving you the flexibility to use it for live/work purposes or reconfigure it for one sprawling full-floor home. More benefits: There are no tax or maintenance fees. Also, owners in the building benefit from proceeds of the commercial lease space on the ground floor.
More loft loveliness, this way

A rare find, this quintessential Soho artist’s loft in original condition has hit the market for the first time in 40 years, seeking $4,250,000.

The sunny corner unit boasts 17 oversized windows with southern and eastern exposures, 10-foot tin ceilings, and original cast-iron columns. Currently the home and studio of a painter, the space is configured with two bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths, but the open, angular layout offers a lot of flexibility for future owners.
For under $1 million, you can own this uber-trendy South Williamsburg loft at 138 Broadway, the historic Smith-Gray Building. Though the loft is technically a studio, it has a separate kitchen and plenty of room in its 925-square-foot layout for individual sleeping, living, and dining areas. But what makes this unit even more desirable is its impeccable contemporary-western vibes–a mix of historic elements such as whitewashed brick walls and wooden ceilings with modern nods to the style like lots of caramel leather furniture and bold, geometric textiles.
