Troy Street Lofts

614 S Troy St

The loft revolution began in the 1950s when many artists and residents decided to convert vacant industrial and warehouse buildings in Manhattan's SoHo district into spacious living and work spaces. The exposed ceilings, multistory windows, open floor plans, cast-iron framing, and cement floors were perfect settings for studios, galleries, and avant-garde homes. It wasn't long before the SoHo lifestyle caught the public's imagination by storm and loft living became a worldwide phenomenon. Today, Main Street Lofts and Troy Street Lofts in Royal Oak are more than just a transplanted great idea-they are unique.
