Tucked south of the rail corridor along DeKalb Avenue, the La France Street Lofts are a fusion of old-school industrial and sleek infill. Unit 402, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, is a prime example, with soaring loft ceilings, exposed wood and steel trusses and polished concrete floors. While the kitchens and bathrooms hint at the early-aughts origins of the place — light wood and black countertops — the overall aesthetic of the apartment is pretty timeless. And with lots of light, some exposed old brick and hardwood floors in the bedrooms, the 1,151-square-foot unit, listed for $250,000, probably has what it takes to win over industrialists at heart. Ditto for budget-conscious condo shoppers who've been priced out of other areas.
