Want to ditch the yardwork, or live like SOHO in WOHO? Soon you’ll be able to check out 10 swanky new lofts being built in 1930’s Deco Industrial style at 119 Walnut Street. Located across from Egan & Sons, and steps away from the Walnut Street Farmer’s Market, the condominiums will feature 17 foot ceilings, a sun roof deck, a gazillion upgrades, and a security system to rival Fort Knox. Local development company, Olive Tree Homes, is building on the site of an old apartment block. They believe there’s a market in this neighborhood for luxury low rise, and have set the bar pretty high. Originally priced in the mid to upper $500K’s, Dino Ciccotti, owner of NJ Property Realty, who is marketing the lofts, tells Baristanet that units will soon be available for the eye-popping price of high $600K’s to low $700K’s. There’s no contrived marketing names here, they’ll be known simply as Walnut Lofts. Any takers?
