163 Bank St, New York, NY 10014
A transformative artist studio awaits along the tree-lined West Side Highway. A private elevator through Westbeth Park leads to the expansive open space on the fourth floor. The Westside Loft has a straightforward layout. With 40 eight foot windows, the loft welcomes sunlight to illuminate white brick walls. The studio pans 8,000 square feet and has high ceilings with 15 foot high columns. It can be split into two seperate sections by closing 2 fourteen foot doors. Free standing metal stairs allows a smooth ascension to the mezzanine overlooking the loft’s entirety. Dating back to 1860, its industrial roots as the Bell Telephone Laboratory Complex remain. Bare beams, exposed pipes and visible ducts painted white for a sense of modernity. A rounded poured concrete kitchen with usable appliances and black grand piano. Steel metal vault doors with visible hinges, white wood-burning fireplace with an exposed flue and light maple wood floors. An infinite cyclorama wall for limitless creative expression. This landmarked building was once home to Westbeth Project, which provided affordable housing to artists in the sixties. Now, the studio includes a modularly designed restroom built from a repurposed UPS truck. Other works of art are embedded throughout the space. As the night falls, the Westside Loft provides impeccable views of the sunset and glimmering city lights from Manhattan to New Jersey.
