Fishtown (1 bed, 1 bath)—Into that loft life? Check out this 895-square-foot condo in the Ribbon Factory Lofts. Natural light is not an issue here, since there are seven 10-foot-tall windows. It’s a big, open layout with the bedroom tucked into the corner, and there’s in-unit laundry, too. Monthly condo fees come out to $178.
