A former button factory reimagined as industrial-chic rentals

Share this Article

In a previous life, this property was a button factory designed by famous Art Deco architects of the 1920s. Now, it's been reimagined as home to industrial-chic rentals, and this three-bedroom loft, listed by Stribling for $12,000 per month, balances past and present in a striking way. You'll find an open floor plan and enormous windows, a small balcony, and loads of room for entertaining. Plus, you'll be in the heart of what brokers like to call "Midtown South," close to theaters, restaurants, shopping, and plenty of transit options.

You'll enter the apartment via a private elevator; the open, slightly raw space and movable walls seem ideal for someone who craves the freedom to change up layouts from time to time, and let their imagination run wild when it comes to design. The dining area brings a welcome splash of color into the space, and the adjacent kitchen stands in the heart of the apartment. Like the rest of the unit, it's sleek and spacious; it includes stainless steel appliances and ample storage and prep space. 

Off the kitchen is a half-bath, plus space for a bright, cozy office nook; head past it toward the bedrooms, which can be configured into two or three separate spaces. 

The master bedroom occupies a corner position and gets lots of natural light; it includes a large closet and en suite bath. A second bedroom includes a walk-in closet. You'll also find a library, currently configured as a swanky game room.

The apartment also boasts an in-unit washer and dryer, central air, and a smallish balcony (not pictured in the listing).
