Walls of oversized windows overlooking picture perfect citiscapes, soaring 13’ ceilings, and a rich history in its adaptive reimagination of the Ex-Lax factory define this very unique home.

... exceptional loft is currently configured as a large one-bedroom plus interior room being used as a guest bedroom.* Both rooms are topped with a partial glass wall punctuating the space with even more brilliant light. Such superlative volume of space offers a versatile layout, easily suited to your needs or as a two-bedroom,* if desired (alternate plan available upon request). There is a beautiful updated full bathroom, plus plumbing in place for an additional bath in the walk-in storage room.
