Depending on how you feel about exposed wood ceiling beams, you will either love or hate this corner loft in 28 Laight Street. Or you'll think something along the lines of, ceiling beams are pretty cool, but this is probably too many of them. But still, nice loft. Anyway, the ceiling beams aren't the only interesting thing about this place, as the current owner(s) (their identities are hidden behind an LLC) paid $6.9 million for it almost exactly three years ago, and have now put it back on the market for $13.5 million. Based on the old listing photos and floorplan, it doesn't look like any significant changes have been made to the design or layout in those three years, so the flip attempt seems ambitious, to say the least. Can the 5,500-square-foot pad come anywhere close to $2,500 per square foot? Looks like we're going to find out.
