The community- and art-focused building offers a public mural gallery, over an acre of green space, and shared indoor and outdoor areas that can be booked for private use. This unit’s rich-hued hardwood floors contrast with concrete walls and iron pipes exposed by high ceilings. The primary bedroom has a private bath with step-in shower. The kitchen, with two-toned cabinetry and stainless appliances, anchors an open living area, where glass sliders open to a tranquil balcony. Off the living area, find a second bedroom, bath, and laundry closet. The unit includes a deeded garage space.
CONS No extra storage.
