1910 was a momentous year: William Taft was president, The Boy Scouts incorporated, Paul Bunyan folklore was born, and Printhouse Lofts originally joined New York's industrial scene brick by mortared brick. Since then, this storied building has transcended time and purpose from its turn-of-the-century warehouse roots to a toy factory, printing house, and present-day authentic loft residences.
The concept of Printhouse Lofts grew out of a timeless love for industrial architecture, which is reflected throughout the building's construction and in its dedication to preservation and detail. The result, authentic lofts that showcase soaring timber beam ceilings, restored wood columns and full walls of original exposed brick accented with hi-end, modern finishes. And if that isn't enough to pique your interest, residences feature unique layouts with open-island kitchens, oversized windows allowing for incredible natural light, stainless steel appliances and exposed piping and ducts to round out the authentic industrial charm.
Located in the heart of North Williamsburg, Printhouse Lofts is a short distance away from many of the area's best attractions including McCarren Park, Brooklyn Bowl, The Music Hall of Williamsburg and the East River State Park on the waterfront. Quintessential Brooklyn dining and shopping experiences line the neighborhood streets which are easily traversed by foot or Citi Bike, with docks conveniently located at the intersection of Bedford and Metropolitan Avenues. The Bedford L subway station is three blocks away from home and one quick stop from Manhattan.
