Here's an (not so) uncommon sight — a property listing with unstaged photographs. It might be a little risky, but in this case it works. Located in the Tehoma Loft building, an old envelope factory at 245 5th Street, this 1200 sq ft live/work property is decked out in wall-to-wall and ceiling-to-floor concrete. The "blank canvas" minimalist/industrial feel is one of the strengths of the lofts, and photographing while empty reinforces the character of the space, which looks pretty damn good on its own. Unfortunately, the listing doesn't mention if the giant baby astronaut is included. You might have to negotiate for that one.
