awkward kitchen fails to stop sale of MacIntyre loft at 874 Broadway in Flatiron

still, $1.875mm There are limits to what even the best architects can do. Assuming the decision about where to place (or, where to keep) the kitchen was made by the clients, you can appreciate that even an “[a]rchitect-designed loft” can

how much did the bathtub cost this Chelsea loft at 151 West 28 Street?

buy low, renovate well, sell high: easy-peazy at 366 Broadway

a conventional story downtown Manhattan, enhanced by beautiful renovation work I need to bring some balance, some rationality, to my consideration of loft renovation projects in Tribeca. Steven Soderbergh’s devil-may-care attitude is driving me a little crazy today (yesterday’s post, 155 Franklin

155 Franklin Street loft sells in a reverse flip (viewer discretion is advised)

sometimes real estate doesn’t work out (or was it Life that didn’t work out?) [major updates at bottom] No matter what your interest is in the Manhattan residential real estate market, what happened to the recent sellers of the “3,532

architects trash O’Neill Building loft in Chelsea, in order to make it beautiful, of course

for the due diligence files of 655 Sixth Avenue loft buyers (caveat emptor!) Long-time readers of Manhattan Loft Guy know that I am a sucker for before-and-after photos; otherwise I have to wait for a loft having been sold twice,

you'd have to see 161 Hudson Street loft to hope to know why it sold 53% above 2009, 9% above ask

very patient (and secretly negotiable) famous seller finally sells 497 Greenwich Street loft at 17% discount

  why do people do that? The seller of the “1,661 sq ft” Manhattan loft #6B at 497 Greenwich Street (the Winka Dubbeldam-designed Greenwich Street Project) told The Market she wanted $2.35mm, but when push (eventually) came to shove she
