Wonder Bread Loft #147
$1299 | 1 BR | 1 BA | Off-Street Parking
With a view of St. John’s Cathedral, this Wonder Bread Loft finds itself wonderfully tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Italian Village. Its design hearkens back to the factory’s history: polished concrete floors, exposed ductwork, and original brick pairs with a luxury kitchen and an elegant spiral staircase. This is truly one of our most unit Wonder Bread Lofts.
Wonder Bread Loft #110
$1650 | 2 BR | 2 BA | Off-Street Parking
This is one of our most spacious Wonder Bread Lofts. Of course, it features all the things people love about Wonder Bread Lofts. Granite countertops in the kitchen are just one perk of this great open concept. We especially love the custom-built wooden staircase leading to this unit’s second floor loft area. This is a must-rent for anyone who loves hosting friends and family.
245 King Avenue #301
$1895 | 2 BR | 2 BA | Off-Street Parking
You can’t tell us that the apartments at 245 King Avenue aren’t the most gorgeous in Victorian Village. Newly renovated, this apartment features a beautiful granite island that looks out to a spacious living room. Tall ceilings and large windows invite in natural light while giving the space a distinct, larger than life personality. Be the first to live inside this awesome apartment.
181 Detroit Avenue
$2975 | 2 BR | 3.5 BA | Garage Parking
For those wanting to increase their square footage (these are 2,000 square feet!) while staying in the heart of the Italian Village, our newly built townhomes are for you. The townhome model allows us to maximize square footage while creating a Manhattan flavor that’s fit for a big city. These are some of the best new builds in the area. Each of these four townhomes features private covered parking, floor to ceiling wrap-around windows, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, white granite counters, custom light fixtures, smart-home devices, and, of course, a stunning place to live.
The Candy Factory #106
$1599 | 1 BR | 1 BA | Off-Street Parking
The Candy Factory was an opportunity to turn an historic space into an Italian Village hot spot. This 1BR/1BA apartment features 12-14 foot ceilings and brilliant windows, making this apartment bright and cheerful with natural light. We’ve kept historical touches throughout, keeping the exposed brick as an accent wall. Even better, residents can enjoy the effortless appeal of original wood support beams in the kitchen and bedroom. We added granite countertops, mocha cabinetry, and stainless-steel appliances to the kitchen. This apartment is perfect for entertaining with the open concept layout. With our smart devices, control your thermostat, heating and central cooling, lighting and locks with the simple touch of a button.
The Candy Factory #104
$1375 | 1 BR | 1 BA | Off-Street Parking
With a beautiful wrap-around island, this kitchen is a dream for cooks and hosts. A beautiful brick accent wall stays true to this apartment’s rich story. Moreover, we’ve taken extra measures to keep the space’s original wooden beam on the ceiling. This touch pairs with luxury elements like a custom light fixture and white subway tile backsplash. Don’t let this be the apartment that you miss out on.
