In April 2010, I represented a buyer client looking for a raw loft space to renovate to his own style. What we were able to find was an 1150 Square Foot top-floor at BrickBottom Lofts in Somerville. Here's a quick before and after gallery after 2 years of hard work! Interview to follow soon.....

Oh yeah, and BOTH sold for asking price....... 56 Clyde Street, Unit 3 List Price: $639,900 SALE Price: $639,900 Days on Market: 118 SOLD Price Per Square Foot: $312 Size: 2050 Square Feet / 2 Beds / 3.5 Baths Condo Fee: $299 56 Clyde are 15 Brand New "Green" Townhouse Lofts between Spring Hill and Powderhouse Square, Somerville that boast Open Floorplans, floating glass staircases, Bosch appliances, 8 Foot Windows, Surround Sound Systems.20 Howard Street, Davis Square Lofts, Unit 4 List Price: $625,00 SALE Price: $625,000 Days on Market: 591 SOLD Price Per Square Foot: $701 Size: 891 Square Feet / 1 Bed / 1 Bath Condo Fee: $331 With transactions taking place all the time, the Davis Square Lofts remain the top complex for "brick and beam" lofts in Somerville.

If you haven't heard, Northpoint Condos in the Lechmere section of Cambridge has had new life breathed into it after Magic Johnson (yes, that Magic Johnson, Celtics fans) and his development team have taken the reins to relaunch the stalled neighborhood development at the Northpoint area. The new team is creating "a $2 billion "mini-city" between Cambridge and Boston that will bring thousands of new homes, a shopping complex, and offices to a former rail yard", according to the Boston Globe. Sales in the currently complete two residential buildings - Tango and Sierra, have finally started to occur at a decent clip after the confusion and unknown future of the project also stalled homebuyers' confidence to buy there. I recently toured the buildings again a few times with clients over the past few weeks and units are sales are finally back on track! Units range from two-level loft style to one level open concept - but with bedrooms! There is also a wonderful studio / one bedroom for rent at the moment, that's never been lived in - ready to move in at $2550 / month. The info on this gorgeous Cambridge Loft rental unit:
