Built in 1917 as a warehouse and printing shop, 355 Bryant was transformed into live/work lofts in 1992 shortly before the first dot-come wave and bust. David Baker Architects, who designed the new digs, preserved much of the onetime industrial setting, including keeping the exposed and timber, which, unlike other live/work lofts popular at the time, give these condos a timeless appeal.
Featuring two bedrooms, one and a half baths, and 1,981 square feet, 355 Bryant, #208 comes with floor-to-ceiling windows, library/reading nook, and raised loft space (ergo, the second bedroom). The kitchen was remodeled recently (dig those gold fixtures) to help keep the vibes contemporary.
It also has a roof deck, smack dab next to a billboard base. Funky.
Asking is $2,200,000.
