This pre-war industrial loft in SoHo comes with soaring 14-ft ceilings and an industrial vibe.
On the market via Douglas Elliman for $2.6m, 1E 140 Thompson Street has been given a top-to-toe renovation by its current owners who’ve retained many of its original features, including exposed beams, oversized arched windows and high ceilings.
It sits within the redbrick West Broadway Arches building (constructed in 1903 and converted into apartments in 1978) and occupies the ground floor. Living accommodation is split over two levels, with pale oak floors and white walls used throughout.
The foyer leads into the cavernous living room and monochrome kitchen, which looks onto the street. This lofty open-plan space is overlooked by the master bedroom above – separated by a sound-proofed glass wall, with curtains for privacy – and kitted out with built-in seating and book shelves.
A second bedroom is currently outfitted as a children’s room with raised sleeping platform. It continues the industrial feel with exposed brick walls, and there’s also an office/study off the foyer. Other touches inside the Manhattan property include custom cabinetry, and Philippe Starck fixtures in the bathroom.
