Converted 6 years ago, this loft defines the quintessential urban living experience.
The open kitchen is a natural focal point for entertaining at home.
A large private/bedroom area at the rear of the loft can be separated from the main living space.

The morning sun hits the top of the historic buildings along South Street.
The new 1 Lincoln Street office tower provides a dramatic backdrop to the urban views.

Alternatively, the alcove can be torn down to open the main living space even further.
The original wood floors are over 100 years old and have been polished and preserved.
Central AC and heating are ducted throughout the space.
The interior design of the loft forms a natural 3rd bedroom alcove within the space.
A formal dining area naturally adjoins the open galley-style kitchen.
A sliding partion separates the kitchen/dining area from the unit's private amenities.
An expansive private/bedroom space can easily accommodate multiple storage closets.
The rear of the unit with its 3 north-facing windows is the obvious choice for the main bedroom area.
A decommissioned freight elevator shaft serves as auxiliary storage for the loft.

Imagine the elevator space built-out with wall-to-ceiling California Closets.

Adjoining the freight elevator shaft is the unit's in-house laundry facilities.
Additional sitting areas can be accommodated within the private/bedroom area.
A separating wall can be easily constructed to ensure privacy between the bedroom area and the main living space.
Adjoining the bedroom area is a full ensuite bathroom.
Bathroom features broken-slate floor tiling, free-standing claw tub/shower stall with vanity and washbasin.
