For intowners wanting to take live-work fusion to the next level, a two-bedroom, two-and-1/2-bathroom loft with space and zoning for all sorts of commercial uses could be just the place to start. The corner unit, just a block from Historic Fourth Ward Park, has glass walls on two sides of the ground floor, giving plenty of visibility for the "Dumb Starbucks" you've been dying to open. The white walls and polished concrete floors lend a sterile operating-room aesthetic, while the minimalist kitchen is straight out of the anti-IKEA catalogue (it's by the award-winning Germans at Bulthaup, loaded with top-flight appliances). Covering four floors, the space is a substantial 3,225 square feet, though with a price tag of $649,900, it doesn't necessarily come cheap. It'll take a lot of Dumb Frappuccinos to cover that mortgage note.
