With polished concrete floors, a slick open kitchen, and a universal white color scheme, this Soho apartment at 40 Renwick Street looks like the very embodiment of loft living. The two-bedroom, 2,800-square-foot space is available for a May 2012 move-in, but the owners are already moving fast to secure a new tenant at $10,000 per month. Given the state of the rental market, we have to say we're surprised there's not more gouging going on here: the place rented back in May of 2010 for $9,990 per month. The location, less than a block up from Canal and not far from the Holland Tunnel entrance is not ideal for those who like their quiet, but then again, Tribeca, Soho, and the West Village are all an easy stroll away.
