Loft apartments in the Greenwich Village’s historic Cast-Iron Building at 67 East 11th Street often have “quirky” and “oddly shaped” layouts, as we’ve previously put it. But those apartments can also be charming and airy, with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. This unit that has just hit the market, asking $1.25 million, is no exception.

The 850-square-foot one-bedroom loft has 15-foot ceilings, one bathroom, an eat-in kitchen, a living room area, two walk-in closets, a dishwasher, and hardwood floors. It also has its own 100-square-foot private terrace with space for a seating area.

According to the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation (GVSHP), the building itself was designed by architect John Kellum and built in 1868. It was home to the James McCreery & Co. dry goods store until 1902. GVSHP has pushed for the LPC to landmark the building over the years—either as part of the Greenwich Village historic district or individually—but the agency has not budged.

It was converted to a co-op in 1973 and now has 144 residential units and a common roof deck, a common laundry room, and a bike room. Maintenance charges come in at $1,590/month.

It’s located on 11th Street between Broadway and University Place, near Union Square and its transit hub. Martin Eiden of Compass has the listing.
