Hard VS Soft Lofts
Distinctive Living Offering A Few Different Options!  

Soft lofts are known for unique, one-of-a-kind space.

Remember the movie GHOST? That's what comes to mind when I think of a Hard loft.

Soft Lofts generally tend to be very high-end and emphasize room SIZE or room COUNT.

Hard Lofts tend to be very minimalist by definition. Cement floors are very common.

The scale of ALL lofts tends to be very generous, the spaces open and airy.

Exposed duct work is the hallmark of Hard Lofts.


Soft Lofts

    Looking for something different in a condo? Try a loft!
Not all lofts have rough edges and drafty windows. Loft units are in every neighborhood of Center City and rarely will you find two lofts to be identical. Personality comes into play in terms of layout and decor. Really groovy stuff!

 Looking for something a little more off the beaten path? Maybe a converted warehouse or factory might do the trick. H ere are some fine examples of Hard Lofts which are less prevalent but can be really cool in their austerity:

Spotlight- Center City One Condominiums at 1326 Spruce St.

Known as Center City One, 1326 Spruce Street has a great reputation for being a solid Center City real estate building. A mix of studio, one, and two bedroom units, Center City One is graced 95 on-site parking spaces (some owned, some rental, all assigned) and has wonderful north or south facing views and all units include balconies. Located in the 19107 zip code, Center City One features a 24-hour front desk attendant and on-site management. All units at Center City One are flats-no bi-level condo units at 1326 Spruce exist. 
All units have a  caged storage area in the basement! Every unit has it's own HVAC unit.  We find many Philly real estate buyers are delighted with what they can buy for their money at Center City One and in my opinion, the 1209 square foot, two bedroom, two bath units have the BEST floor plan design in town! Condo fees include water/sewer, hot water, gas, basic cable, building insurance, bi-annual window cleaning, 24-hour front desk attendant and on-site management. Recent upgrades to the building include roof replacement during Spring/Summer of 2018, garage renovations, boiler replacement, and common HVAC replacement.

I've been a huge fan of 1326 Spruce for years. I think the value is evident and I believe the
condo association is one of the strongest in town.

Yeah, that photo is like a decade old.
Saturday AM is my favorite time of the entire work week.
No office work and a full day of looking at some
really cool condos around town.
It just never gets tiring....
