Looking for a unique loft in a historic Printer's Row building? This industrial conversion in the Franklin Building on South Dearborn boasts a bedroom, an office space, two bathrooms, and can be had for $450,000. Designed by George C. Nimmons and built in 1912, the building was the home of the Franklin Printing Company and was operating as printing facility up until 1983. The building sports an ornamental terra cotta relief and a mural above the main entrance that depicts printers using a Gutenberg press. Inside, the unit features some notable upgrades, including high-end name brand kitchen appliances and a custom home office setup. If blue and purple are not your colors, repainting the space should be an easy task. However, the big catch here is the $1,129 in monthly assessments. Also, should you require parking, a space will cost you an extra $30,000.
