Industrial roots run deep in Poughkeepsie, a historic city two upstream from New York City that finds itself amidst a cultural and creative renaissance. A case study in the community's revitalization is the Piano Factory Lofts, a discrete collection of unique residences inspired by the city's manufacturing past.
Built as a dye factory in 1880 and later converted to manufacture piano hammers, the landmarked structure is no stranger to adaptive reuse. Handsome detailing defines its redbrick exterior: A frieze and projecting cornice skirts the original roofline, boasting large carved brackets and a triangular pediment emblazoned with the year of the building's construction. Three stories are sandwiched between the raised basement and penthouse level for a combined sum of five levels.
The top and penthouse levels are currently offered for sale as a combined unit with private elevator access, two designer kitchens, two master bedrooms and open living space with sweeping views of the Hudson River.
