The Flatiron Loft That Still Looks Like a Factory


We’ve seen plenty of penthouse lofts that look like industrial space (wide-open layout, super-high ceilings, columns everywhere), but not quite as literally as this Flatiron penthouse. There’s piping all over the ceiling, grey floors made of an unknown material (hopefully not cement) and there doesn’t appear to be any actual rooms in this apartment. Although, to be fair, the listing does emphasize that the “flexible floor plan” makes for a “wonderful canvas for creative ingenuity.” In other words, after you shell out $7.495 million for the apartment you’ll also have to put in money to make it feel like a home with doors and walls and rooms.

The penthouse does have a bunch of large windows that bring in that natural light and a spacious, private rooftop terrace that looks more warm and welcoming than the inside. Another perk of the space is the keyed elevator that opens up directly to the apartment (which takes up the entire top floor of the building). It’s 5,648 square feet and has the potential for four to six bedrooms, depending on the preference of whomever comes up with the layout for this create-your-own-apartment.
