The story

The building had lots of uses throughout the 20th century—it was, at different times, a bowling alley, a dance studio and a boxing gym—but it was vacant when Streetcar Developments found it in the early 2000s. The developer converted the space into 12 apartments. This unit’s owner, a single professional woman, bought the loft in 2011. She’s selling so she can buy a house with her son and his partner.

Big selling points

It’s hard to find windows this size (18 feet tall, to be exact):

Plus, the space has all the features loft buyers love: hardwood floors, wood-beamed ceilings and exposed brick walls. On muggy summer days, reprieve at Woodbine Beach is a six-minute walk away.

Possible deal breaker

The loft isn’t exactly family-friendly, with just a single master bedroom on the second floor and no conversion-ready den.
