What Are Condo Lofts?

 

Angelinas Corner Loft Condos

Condo Lofts started out in the U.S. as conversions of old warehouses or industrial buildings into residential condominiums. Lofts traditionally were large, open residential space above a commercial or industrial building. Downtown Loft living began in Europe with artists living in a combination residence space and studio space. These LiveWork Loft combinations allowed the artist to live above their workplace. Later, city revitalization efforts converted old industrial space or warehouse space into residential space. Since then, loft living has transitioned into large open residential space with large windows in an urban setting.

Loft Condos have become so popular that to meet the needs of buyer demand, many new condo lofts are built new from the ground up instead of being industrial conversion projects.

Condo Lofts Defined

A typical condo loft has high ceilings, original brick, concrete walls, massive beam structures, exposed electrical conduits, exposed heating and air conditioning conduits, large windows, open floor plans, and concrete or hardwood floors. Many condo buyers love the blend of the old with the new. Others love the feel of living in a historic building. Almost everyone loves the large open spaces.

Utah Condominium Lofts

There are several condominium lofts in Utah, particularly in Salt Lake City. Most condo lofts in Utah are conversion lofts from old warehouses or industrial plants near former downtown industrial areas. Increasing condo loft demand has stimulated some developers to initiate building projects that provide new-built condos with underground parking, commercial space on the first two floors and then multi-floor residential loft condos for all the upper floors. The top floor is reserved for penthouse condominium suites.
