Are you a Las Vegas Loft Person?
Lofts in Las Vegas are few and far between in Las Vegas because it doesn't have the historic buildings that make great bones for conversion into a loft. Because of that we sometimes have buyers hot for a loft that end up buying a modern condo on the Strip instead. And vice versa. Is a Last Vegas loft in your future? Consider some pros and cons.
First, some great things about loft living:
You're (almost always) close to the action. Owning a loft puts you in the center of the action, close to restaurants, bars, casinos, nightclubs, entertainment venues, hotels, shops and galleries. Also, you can walk, bike or take the bus or take the monorail to work or other places you want to go. As an example, Newport Lofts, one of our most popular loft buildings, is right in the center of the action, between downtown and the heart of the strip.
Open space is the rule. Lofts have high ceilings and open floor plans, so they feel spacious and airy. Many Las Vegas lofts feature floor-to-ceiling windos and balconies which open out onto panoramic views of the mountains, the Strip and the city’s urban core.
Your visitors will think you're cool. Lofts are unique and cool, with details such as exposed brick walls and open ductwork. You can use your imagination to customize, decorate, showcase an art collection, and really make the living space your own. There’s something fun and bohemian about living in a loft, and because its not the norm in Vegas, your visitors will be impressed.
Ok, those points might make everyone want to live in a loft. But here's some things that you might want to consider before you jump into a loft purchase.
Lack of Storage can hamper some. While lofts are large and spacious, they often do not have a great deal of internal storage space. Some Las Vegas lofts have more storage space than others. Of course, you can create some storage space with bookshelves, cupboards, cabinets and under-bed storage.
Privacy can cause friction. If there are two of you living in a loft or if you plan on having some company, consider your needs for privacy. Some lofts just have one open space, which doesn't make it easy for one person to sleep in while the other blends a smoothie in the kitchen. Instead, you may want to choose a loft/condo hybrid which still has an open living space but also has closed-in bedrooms.
In the end, the choice to live in a loft-style apartment depends upon individual taste and preference. If your ideal space is contemporary, chic and trendy and your lifestyle is urban-focused, living in a loft-style apartment may be perfect for you.
