Philadelphia-based Barzilay Development has converted a former iron works in Northern Liberties into 12 lofts with ceilings rising to 22 feet. The project is called Iron Mill Lofts and is located at 1156 North Third Street. Rents start at $1,750 for a one-bedroom, one-bath unit with private entryway.

The building was originally constructed in 1871 as Eagle Iron Works, which manufactured steam engines, castings, boilers, and similar products. One of its founders patented the hollow pressure point. Today, the lofts retain industrial details like exposed brick, ductwork and wood ceilings.
