This unusually large Printers Row loft has been straining to sell for 17 months now. And the more earnest recent price chops are beginning to reflect that. We ogled this place last winter when it sat at $1.2M. The 4,000-square-foot live/work setup is split almost 50/50 with accommodations for four bedrooms and a bathroom-and-a-half. Should you decide to cede the office portion to the residential, you can work on the bed-bath ratio. Or, leave the place as is and bring your biz along for the ride. The space has raw advantages for any use: 14-foot ceilings, full height windows with three exposures, exposed brick, and concrete external walls. Belonging to the gorgeous 1913 Donohue Annex, residential use predominates. But there's still a great freight elevator to chug along in. The new ask? $989,500.
