Artist’s live-work studio next to future Rail Park asks $599K

It’s the corner unit

A former factory-turned-photography-studio-turned-loft right next to the future Rail Park has hit the market for just under $600,000.

Located right at 13th and Noble streets in Callowhill, this live-work loft sits right on the edge of the Reading Viaduct Rail Line, which is set to be transformed into the Rail Park. In other words: Location, location, location.

Currently, the spacious condo unit is set up as a studio, with a custom-designed steel Murphy bed doubling as a room separator. There are nice industrial-style details like that throughout, in keeping with the 110-year-old property’s history as a former garment factory. There are oversized windows, original pine wood columns, exposed brick, and a Bulthaup-designed kitchen.

The current owner says it’s a perfect set up for an artist who wants to run a studio out of their home, but if that setup isn’t ideal, there’s a floor plan available to turn it into a 3-bedroom unit. There’s certainly space for it: In total, the home clocks in at 1,875 square feet.

The asking price is $599,000, plus $512 monthly HOA fees.
