I looked at an L-shaped loft today on the 5th floor of a commercial building on Bridge St. between Willoughby and Fulton Mall in downtown Brooklyn. The rent is $2200/month with a 1 year lease and no fee. It is 900 sf (my measurements) with high ceilings and good light. The location is extremely convenient to trains and also happens to be close to a good hardware store, a Radio Shack, and Polytechnic University. The surrounding buildings are mostly commercial and low-rent retail, although this is a gentrifying area and some luxury condos are being built up the street. Rent includes heat 9-5 M-F but nothing else. There is a small bathroom down the hall which is shared with 2 other tenants, but there’s no shower or kitchenette. Since this is the first space we’ve really seen, I can’t say how it stacks up in terms of value, but it certainly seems like a viable option based on our criteria. More photos after the jump…

The high ceilings throw off the scale of the interior shots somewhat. This section is 18 feet wide by 42 feet long:

The entrance “nook” is 9 feet x 16 feet:

    Great Review! I think the 750′² main area may be a bit tight, but the area that it is in simply great.

    Moderation is good. The 9-5 M-F isn’t so bad if you work on a swing shift.

    I used to work in this building – the area is great and I would recommend it, but the landlord is a little stingy with the heat.
