The Cigar Factory Lofts is located just south of Girard Ave. on N. 4th Street in Northern Liberties.  These condos really fit the traditional loft mold.  The building is a converted cigar factory (hence the name) and provides an industrial loft feel.  The building is home to one and two bedroom condos that offer exposed brick walls, exposed ductwork, exposed wooden beam ceilings, hardwood floors, and modern/upgraded kitchens and baths.  The Cigar Factory Lofts have some really spacious floor plans…some of the one bedroom condos are 1,800+ square feet while some of the two bedroom condos are 2,500+ square feet.  There is no doorman or fitness center.  The building is pet friendly, and there is a private, covered garage on the ground floor.

Cobblestone Court Condos, located on North 4th St. in “hip” Northern Liberties, is an industrial complex with a private, communal courtyard for its residents.  Featuring one and two bedroom multi-level condos, Cobblestone Court  consists of 23 units.  Each condo has street level access into the courtyard.  The units are definitely on the smaller side, especially when the square footage is broken down into multiple levels/floors.  Some one bedroom condos are less than 600 square feet, while some two bedroom units are under 850 square feet.  These condos are a short walk to The Piazza at Schmidts and all of 2nd Streets offerings.  There aren’t too many other addresses in the heart of Northern Liberties with such an affordable cost of entry.

Liberty Mews Condos is a small gated community located on North 4th Street in Northern Liberties.  The gated entrance leads to a communal courtyard with picnic tables which can be enjoyed by all residents.  These condos are almost set up as miniature townhomes as they offer tri-level living.  Each condo is accessible from the courtyard.  Your front door leads to the first floor which consists of a kitchen and living area.  There are two sets of staircases – one leads up and one leads down.  The one that leads up takes you to the bedroom(s) and bath.  The one that leads down takes you to a bonus room that’s great for storage or an additional sitting room.  Some of the one bedroom condos are set up loft style as the bedroom overlooks the living area…other layouts are more traditional.  Most, but not all, of the condos offer a private balcony off the bedroom.  One and two bedroom condos are available and the community is pet friendly.  One of the coolest features is that although this development is located on 4th Street (a relatively busy street), you wouldn’t know it as it’s pushed back from the street and very private.

The loft style condos at Northpoint Lofts are located on the fringe of Northern Liberties as they are just north of Girard Ave. on North 3rd Street.  This modern loft conversion features industrial style condos with polished concrete floors, 15+ foot ceilings, loft style bedrooms overlooking the living area, concrete ceilings with exposed structural steel beams, stainless steel appliances, and garage parking is available.  Some of the ground floor units are customizable work/living spaces in which you can drive your car into your living room or work space depending on how you utilize the space…giving new meaning to working from home.  These spaces are great for artists, architects, photographers, designers, etc.  I know one unit was used as both a place to live and a place to house the owner’s private car collection.  These condos are very industrial and also offer exposed ductwork, exposed plumbing, and metal staircases.  Northpoint Lofts can definitely be a great option for those currently renting studio space as they eliminate the need by combining your home and work space together.
