It is an authentic loft, with high ceilings and the distinctive open plan that became the model for all new construction and even brownstone renovations.
In the Dumbo Historic District, here’s a spacious loft in a circa 1894-1895 factory building designed by William Tubby.
These five lofty apartments offer open-plan living spaces and very high ceilings for a spacious, airy feel hard to come by in traditional units. All the buildings boast roof decks, and some of the apartments have their own private outdoor space as well.
This morning a press release went out about how condo owners at 50 Bridge Street, also known as Bridge No. 50, have reached a settlement in a lawsuit brought against the building’s developer “and certain of its affiliates.” (The developer in question is the notorious Joshua Guttman.) The suit dates back to 2007 and, according to the release, concerned how the building “suffered from a number of construction defects including a defective roof and other waterproofing issues.” Representatives from the condo board declined to tell us exactly how much the settlement was for except to say that it’s “a significant dollar amount that combined with some special assessments within the building, will allow the building to fix the construction issues.” Repairs are supposed to begin later this year. The building was converted into a condo in 2004. GMAP
50 Bridge Street isn’t on a par with some of the other condo buildings in Dumbo, but this particular listing is pretty sweet. The high ceilings, big windows, modern kitchen and killer views from the private outdoor space are a potent combo; at $700 a month, the maintenance is shockingly low as well. The asking price of $1,400,000 is also not wacko for 1,600 square feet of space. If this were on the south side of Jay Street, it would be a lay-up, but this end of the nabe is definitely picking up steam.
