Apartments with high ceilings and open layouts are often described as "loft-like," a phrase inspired by the homes created in formerly industrial buildings. These lofts are distinguished by their flexible floor plans as well as original details like exposed brick, beamed ceilings, columns, and exposed pipes.

These industrial buildings were first considered livable when artists moved in, attracted by low rents and expansive space they would come to use as live/work studios. This led to the Loft Law designed to protect tenants, and eventually brought glamour to formerly blighted neighborhoods like Soho, Noho, and Tribeca - artists like William Wegman, Michael Somoroff, and Julian Schnabel are among former loft-dwellers.

67 Vestry Street is a classic example of Tribeca's transformation. It was originally built in the late 19th century for the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, and served as the creative center of Tribeca in the 1970s when Andy Warhol, John Chamberlain, Robert Wilson, and Marisol lived there. The building's rusticated facade has been largely restored for its most recent incarnation, but the high-end finishes and 50-foot lap pool are nothing like the old days. Occupancy is estimated for spring 2022. See all listings here.

168-Plymouth-Street-01 All images of 168 Plymouth via Alloy
Closings have recently commenced at 168 Plymouth, which has been described as "the last loft conversion in DUMBO." Owing to its location in the DUMBO Historic District, the residential conversion and penthouse addition to a former paint factory and daylight factory could not proceed without the approval of the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Upon completion, the facades were restored to their full glory, and the apartments are rich in original details like high ceilings and original beams and columns. The building also offers custom RiFRA kitchens, generous closet space, a lobby lounge, a garden courtyard, and a landscaped roof terrace. See all listings here.

720-Clinton-Street-01 All images of Wonder Lofts via Prism Capital Partners
As Hoboken shows, the trend of converting industrial buildings to trendy living space is not limited to New York. The original Wonder Bread factory has been converted to a residential building, though not at the expense of design elements like brick detail, archways, a smokestack, and a water tower. All units come with high ceilings and oversized windows, not to mention designer kitchens, smart home capabilities, private terraces, and a parking space in the building's garage. The crowning glory is a rooftop lounge with infinity-edge pool, grills, fire pits, dining and lounge areas, and outdoor bar.

Homes at Wonder Lofts are priced from $1.2 million for two-bedroom residences, $1.57 million for three-bedroom homes, $2 million for four-bedroom floor plans and $2.39 million for five-bedroom homes. The history, luxury, and views are proving to be powerful lures; the building is already 40 percent sold. See all listings here.
