Loft apartment, 3J at the renowned Esquire Building located at 330 Wythe Avenue has hit the market for the first time in Williamsburg. The home encapsulates the building’s rich industrial history (formerly Esquire Shoe Polish Company), with a modern and chic twist, making it a prime example of the poured concrete movement in residential real estate.
Rafi Elbaz, the architect, developer and art collector, who is selling the home, helped to ignite this poured concrete movement in the early 2000’s and has been at the forefront of it ever since. Elbaz’s firm, Saho NYC, which has completed several projects in North Brooklyn, is known for its environmentally-conscious designs, often using materials like recyclable steel and repurposed wood.
This five-bedroom loft is no different. It’s stark, minimalist interiors paired with 18 foot concrete ceilings, Peruvian walnut floorings, reclaimed Indonesian teak for the floor in the master shower, and immaculate views of the Williamsburg Waterfront, are just a few of these unique designs. The home, which truly defines all that is New York industrial-chic, is listed by Douglas Elliman agents Doug Bowen and Alex Maroni.
