The building dates to 1905 and was one of the first Garment District properties converted for residential use.

Got a thing for soaring tin ceilings, huge windows and exposed brick? Then this loft, 107 West 25th St., #5E, checks all the boxes for you. It is listed for $1,790,000. 

The two-bedroom, one-bath, 1,060-square-foot loft has been nicely renovated and also retains tons of prewar charm, with 10-foot, eight-inch ceilings, oversized south-facing windows, wood floors, and original cast iron columns. Bedrooms are delineated by glass and iron panels, and there are custom lighting treatments. 


There's a lot of glass in here, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, and glass walls between rooms.


The apartment has an open living and dining room area, and a modern kitchen with custom cabinetry, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a washer/dryer.


The large bathroom features striking decorative tile on the floor, and white subway tile walls, as well as a claw foot soaking tub. 

Maintenance is $2,225, with an additional assessment of $900 until January 2019. The building has a roof deck and common garden, bike storage, a laundry room, and FiOS, as well as an electronic key fob entry. It is a pet-friendly building. 


Located between Chelsea and Madison Square Park, the building is surrounded by eating, shopping and entertainment options, such as Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Eataly, as well as The Container Store, Bed Bath & Beyond, and numerous fitness centers. Transportation nearby includes the Q and R trains at 28th Street, the F and M and PATH at 23rd Street, and the 1 at 23rd and Seventh Avenue.
