Massive quiet 3,500 sq ft loft filled with plants and perfect natural light. Quiet South facing main studio space. Open spaces with multiple setups/ environments. Separate enormous office space. Additional private workspaces / beauty stations available. Five bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a rare Village gem! The building is on a production friendly street adjacent to Washington Square Park. The homeowners are artists and are constantly adapting the space to share with other creatives tweaking it with film friendly additions. The space is a true directors dream. XL curbside elevator opens to entire floor of the building with stylish yet flexible furnishing offering plenty of open space and room for creative set dressing. The Loft is extremely quiet. It is the entire floor, and the south side (open living room) faces onto a private alley and is whisper quiet. The South side also offers tremendous natural "controlled" light, making it perfect for shooting interviews. This historic beauty was built in 1870 but your Art Director can turn it into any period since then ;) Corinthian columns,15 ft exposed beam ceilings, hardwood floors, beautiful brick walls, decorative fireplace, open chef's kitchen. Walk-in closets and green room featuring a vanity with stage lights and professional steamer. The space is truly enormous. This sunny loft is the only true loft of its kind north of Houston in SOHO. It was built in 1870 as a canning factory, later it was used as a repair facility for firetrucks, and finally it became headquarters of the Gay and Lesbian Liberation Front. Home to celebrities and artists over the years including acclaimed Argentinian painter Ronaldo de Juan. The loft’s roots are reflected in the grand 15’ wooden beam ceilings, hardwood floors, and exposed brick walls. The Loft’s interior is a combination of avant-garde early 70s architects and a modern renovation in 2017. The extraordinarily high wood beam ceilings lend grandeur to its principle layout—two enormous open spaces—one to the north and one to the south against a silent alleyway. Most the of the apartment exists on the south side which features walk-in closets, two bathrooms, a fully loaded, open-design chef’s kitchen, library/reading nook, dining area, and a TV lounge. The North side is a dedicated open office featuring several desks and a giant conference room table. Perfect for meetings, corporate events and brainstorm sessions. Alternatively, the conference table can easily be moved aside for an open space. Additional costs: - Please look through the drop-down menu of add-ons to see if any apply for your shoots needs (i.e. elevator, additional private space, use of continuous lighting, overnight storage, etc. - No fee for site rep - Undisclosed attendees Finally, we require all bookings to put down a Security Deposit (3x hourly fee per day). This Security Deposit is held separately via ACH and will be returned to your account within 3-7 business days assuming no damages occurred during your shoot. If your production is not insured, the Security Deposit amount will be determined based on booking details. The hourly base rate increases as your head count increases. Someone will be on site to orient you in the space and also to verify headcount and that all rules are followed. If the total headcount exceeds the booking, the booking will be adjusted and overages will be applied. The total headcount accounts for everyone using the premises for the booking throughout the day, not the total number of people in the space at one time. We have a 5 hour minimum. The best way to plan to avoid overages like OT is to schedule yourself for a longer day even if you do not anticipate needing the full amount of time. We also advise that you give yourself some wiggle room with the total headcount even if you do not expect additional people on set when finalizing the booking. Large impact network/commercial filming will require a customized quote. Productions requiring prep days/ setting up gear and leaving it in The Loft as a built set overnight(s) will receive custom pricing for this use of of the space as an overnight rental.

Gina was an excellent host - communication was simple and the space was a beautiful backdrop for our documentary interview.
