Airy flat at MidCity Lofts trumpets location and views, but finishes are hardly cutting-edge

The listing language for this airy, two-story flat in the amorphous heart of Midtown is rife with bold proclamations, which isn’t to say they’re not accurate.

Let’s begin with, “This one will go FAST, you better hurry!” and continue on toward “Run, don’t walk to this highly coveted [condo with] prime Midtown location.” The obvious grand finale: “Best value in Midtown for the style, location, and space!”

Gone are the days when glassy Midtown high-rises were chockfull of two-bedrooms in the $200,000s, or even mid-$300,000s, so this mezzanine-style arrangement on Spring Street could indeed be special.

Listed this week for $425,000, it joins a handful of for-sale options at MidCity Lofts—including this “killer” combined unit—a 2002 building that neighbors Tech Square. (The $511 monthly HOA fees aren’t chump change, though).

The vitals: two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,190 square feet.

Two-bedroom flats in this general size have been moving, it should be noted, in the low to mid-$400,000s recently in Midtown’s newer towers.

As it’s configured now, the upstairs bedroom offers little privacy from the Renaissance Hotel next door, which did no favors to north-facing views at MidCity when built a decade ago. But such is life for a Midtown condo dweller.

From the concrete pillar and floors to the cabinetry, the aesthetic is clean and simple, though certain finishes speak to the condo’s early-aughts vintage.

On a positive note, the two deeded parking spaces and customized closets are nice, especially for guests, and the building’s rooftop “sky lounge” is as primo as the location.
