Intro to Whitney Square
Originally built in 1890, Whitney Square is a small building with a big history. This five-story neoclassical structure housed a number of industrial tenants before it was converted into 32 unique residential lofts in the mid-2000s.
Inside Whitney Square you’ll discover a wealth of native brick and timber details, but most units are devoid of modern finishes, amenities and private parking. As a result, Whitney Square remains one of the most affordable loft conversions in the neighborhood with the average unit hovering around $155 per square foot.
As for location, the lofts are just a few blocks from downtown proper. Beneath Whitney Square, you’ll also find a number of interesting commercial tenants, including a modern art gallery and a full-service spa.
