The action

The Printing Factory Lofts were developed about 10 years ago.

Brad J. Lamb Realty Inc.

Between September and March there were few opportunities to get into the popular Printing Factory Lofts, so this one-bedroom-plus-den corner suite was well received when it debuted on March 10.

“We were holding back offers on that property with the opportunity to submit a pre-emptive offer – and we did get one,”agent Kimberlee Moss said .

“In accepting that offer, COVID was a part of the [seller’s] thought process. If we waited another five days for our offer date, what could transpire in those five days?”

What they got

The open-concept kitchen has stone counter tops and a glass backsplash.

Brad J. Lamb Realty Inc.

This former printing factory was converted into private lofts about 10 years ago, with several floors added above. This unit is in the new top portion of the building.

The 845-square-foot loft has an industrial feel with 10-foot concrete ceilings, walls of north and east-facing windows and a 378-square-foot wraparound balcony accessible from the bedroom and living room.

The open concept kitchen is well defined with an island, stone counter tops, a glass backsplash and stainless steel appliances.

The unit comes with laundry machines, a storage locker and parking. Each month, fees of $539 pay for water, concierge and upkeep of common areas.

The agent’s take

The unit features a 378-square-foot wraparound balcony.

Brad J. Lamb Realty Inc.

“There was a large amount of outdoor space with a wraparound balcony, and you don’t generally get one- or one-bedroom-plus-dens at 845 square feet,” Ms. Moss said.

“[Plus], once you get to the new construction on the top, there are a lot more windows, and the ceilings aren’t low, they’re 10 feet, so it has a nice feel.”
