SoCoIf you’ve been looking for something with some stellar views of Dallas and some pretty sweet amenities, this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred at the SoCo Lofts is probably going to do the trick.

Unfamiliar with the lofts at 1122 Jackson Street? We wrote about them several years ago, but a quick primer: Constructed in 1926 by Lloyd Whitson and F. Cowderie Dale, it was at one time part of a four-building complex of warehouses for the Gulf, Colorado, and Santa Fe Railroad. Underground tunnels connected the buildings and also allowed trains to enter. Building 3 was demolished eventually, but 1, 2, and 4 remained.

The SoCo Lofts are Building 2, which in previous lives housed the University Club (in the two-story penthouse until the late 30s), WFAA Radio (from the 30s on), and the Garment Center. The building sat vacant by the 80s, and a demo order was issued in 1987, but by 1988, it and building 1 were named Dallas landmarks. By 1997, it was on the National Register of Historic Places.

In the 1990s, it was purchased and renovated as the Santa Fe Lofts, with Corgan & Associates handling the reno. By 2004, the building was officially the SoCo (south of Commerce) Urban Loft Condominiums.

Our unit today, 116, has all the hallmarks you expect from a building with that kind of history — 11-foot ceilings, exposed ductwork and brick, polished concrete floors, and large windows.

“This unit is unique in that it has a separate bedroom,” said listing agent Jorge Goldsmit with Ebby Halliday – Lakewood / Lake Highlands.

The 1.066 square foot space has an upgraded kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a bedroom with a wardrobe, and a large living area.

And the lofts are also known for their amenities, which include a rooftop pool with 360-degree views of Dallas, a fitness center, resident media room, and underground parking garage.

This one bedroom, one bath unit is listed for $239,000. To see more photos, click here. To read more about the history, check out this entry from the Dallas Public Library.
