We decided to take this property off the market and rent it. After 6 months of no action, we had people vying with each other to rent it—sign of the times. It has been rented to a family from California looking to move “back east”.
What happened to the other side when we reconfigured our studio? The studio itself now has no darkroom space, more office/studio space for computers, still a large shooting space, storage for equipment and an updated kitchen for the more food photography Bob does but, where did all that darkroom etc space go. Well… we made it into a loft/condo. And, it’s for sale.
Our building which was developed into artists lofts in the 1980’s—that’s what the sign over the front door still says—was created as working and living places for artists/designers. Some still work and live there but most units are living only and now there’s one more. Actually our space was always two spaces Unit 3C/D and now 3C is its own separate loft condo.
It’s in a great neighborhood: One block to Whole Foods, Starbucks, CVS, Yoga Studio, Book Store, Restaurants, etc. And, it has indoor parking and the opportunity to add a roof deck.
