One of my favorite little-known condos in Miami is a loft just north of the Arts District called Bank Lofts . If you’re driving north on Biscayne, this is the apartment building on the right just before Northeast 82nd Street on the Upper Eastside.
The building was originally supposed to be a bank, but in 2007 it converted to a condominium instead — a rather gorgeous one at that.
Bank Lofts. You won’t be sleeping in the vault or anything like that, but the residents of Bank Lofts enjoy some of the largest and most genuine lofts Miami, where developers often slap the word “loft” on units even though they’re not. These are true lofts. The open floor plans allow for any configuration. All the units do, of course, have bathrooms and kitchens that are finished.
Two Amazing Bank Lofts Wait for You
For a great case in point, there are two Bank Lofts units available right now for a smidge over half a million dollars.
One on the seventh floor is absolutely massive, and the huge windows — which are just as huge in every loft — let it tons of sunlight and make the space feel even larger. There isn’t a ceiling shorter than 11 feet in the building, and some ceilings are 15-feet high. Fifteen freaking feet. That’s a real loft .
The exposed duct work and concrete walls are a dream for somebody looking for an industrial look that’s easy to soften with massive art pieces and designer furniture.
There’s another unit also on the seventh floor that’s about $25,000 cheaper because it’s 100 fewer square feet (I’d give up 100 feet for $25,000, wouldn’t you?). There’s something about both of these units that just gives me a good feeling because I know that somebody’s going to love living in them and I can’t wait to meet whoever that is.
Did I mention the swimming pool and the epic workout room? (A bank with a swimming pool — imagine that.) Check out the pictures, seriously. You’ll be asking me how soon you can move in. Give me a call if you’re interested.
