Ultra Hip Tribeca Loft at 137 Duane Street Sells for $2 Million
Located in the Tribeca South Historic District, the spacious apartment has a long, narrow floor plan, perfect for open-layout lovers or someone looking for a live/work space. 14-foot ceilings, natural oak floors, and entryways on both Duane and Thomas Streets are just a few of the other selling points. Is it worth its price tag? Find out more about the space ahead, and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
The large windows and row of cast-iron columns are the perfect reminders of the building’s industrial past; it was originally built in 1863 for rubber goods merchant Horace H. Day, according to the district designation report. In 1926, the Diamond Shoe Corporation acquired the building, along with several adjoining buildings, and reconstructed the space as one. CityRealty previously reported that the large loft development was converted to a 19-unit condo house known as Diamond on Duane in 2007 by the Lesler Group.
The design possibilities are endless with such an expansive layout, and once the individual tenant is identified it will be interesting to see how he or she interprets this pre-war loft unit.
