Hoopskirt. It’s tough to find a condo building in town that has a name that’s more fun to repeat than this one. “Top-floor Hoopskirt” is even more fun to say on a loop. Luckily, this studio has more going for it than mere mellifluousness.
The 13-foot ceilings and sleeping loft do a lot to combat the studio stereotype that imagines cramped quarters and a daybed. This condo is packed with small luxuries like a marble vanity and Kohler appliances in the bathroom and black quartz countertops in the kitchen. A Benjamin Franklin Bridge view and subway tile in the bathroom feel as chic as the price point and accompanying tax abatement feel sensible.
Investors, take note: This condo building is just two blocks away from that Hot Old City Property That Everyone Is Looking At But No One Is Buying. Might be a useful comp for the undecided.
