THE OWNER SAYS, "My loft has had a friendly feeling from the first time I walked in 38 years ago. The Chinese red floor makes me happy and I hope the owner after me will feel the same way. " First time on the market in 38 years. This is currently an OPEN LOFT with one large bathroom but can be converted to a two bedroom and two bathroom similar to the lofts above in the building (see alternate floor plan) with board approval.
