In the Dumbo Historic District, here’s a spacious loft in a prime location. Located at 50 Bridge Street, in a circa 1894-1895 factory building designed by William Tubby, it has 13-foot-high ceilings and a large mezzanine.
The thoroughly modern unit has a flexible layout and a lot of space, but the openness means it only works for a single tenant or a couple. There are no original interior details.
Depending on how much privacy you require, there’s room for a bedroom set-up in the corner of the unit, although the floor plan currently has the bedroom designated in the upper mezzanine portion, where there is less light and lower ceilings but separation from the living and eating spaces.
The tiled, open kitchen has an eat-in island with room for three seats and is tucked beneath an overhang from the mezzanine. The adjacent bathroom has a tub and additional shelving.
There are two walk-in closets; the one behind the kitchen is over half the width of the entire apartment.
The building is three blocks from the York Street F station and Brooklyn Bridge Park in an increasingly high-end corner of the borough. The condo association successfully sued the developer in 2012 over construction defects.
Amenities include a 24-hour doorman, live-in super, landscaped roof deck, bike storage, gym and available parking.
Douglas Elliman’s Karen Dworkin has the listing, which is asking $1.29 million, with $500 in monthly common charges. What do you think of it?
