When looking for a real loft space, buyers have a mental checklist: high ceilings, big windows, open floor plans. But we also love the privacy that a full-floor loft affords, not to mention the multiple exposures. Here are three of our favorite “full-floors” on the market right now.
Tribeca is known for great loft apartments, and here’s one on the fifth floor of a boutique building on a top block. The space has three exposures — including a dramatic expanse of five east-facing windows — as well as an enormous great flanked by an open chef’s kitchen, though the residence is probably defined by its exposed original wood beams. At this price point, it should be high on the list of any loft hunter looking for a Tribeca home.
Practically a blank canvas, this customizable space near Union Square has great potential. A keyed elevator opens directly up into over 3,500 square feet of space, with 12′6″ ceiling heights, oversize windows and views of the Empire State Building. There are plenty of possibly floor plans for a space this size, but you can’t build new bones, and this loft has great ones.
Here we have a floor-through loft built for someone looking for a contemporary space that retains all the charm of the property’s history. This 3,360-square-foot apartment in Tribeca has all high-end finishes, like Viking and Sub-Zero appliances, but the sky-high ceilings and columns let you know that deep down inside, this place has traditional loft DNA. But unlike many other lofts in New York City, this one boasts a private terrace as well.
