Year Built: 1902

Footprint: 2,100 square feet (three bedrooms, two bath)

From the Agent: "This corner three-bedroom loft occupies the full seventh floor of 54 East 11th Street, a classic industrial building constructed in 1902. The moment you enter the space from your key-locked elevator, you are enveloped by the abundance of natural light streaming in through classic industrial steel windows. The gut renovation by acclaimed architect Cary Tamarkin takes its design cues from the original spirit of the building. Twelve-foot ceilings and hardwood floors are complemented by custom-designed built-in millwork throughout. The loft includes all-new appliances and fixtures, a full laundry room, an office nook, and plenty of storage spaces—including two huge walk-in-closets in the primary bedroom."

Large windows wrap around the living areas, enhancing the apartment’s airy ambiance.
