We’ve already profiled several units inside this converted Farmers Market loft building, which might be the best example of such a building that Dallas has to offer. But this second-floor unit at 2220 Canton, No. 209, might just be my favorite. I love the layout — almost completely open save for a privacy wall blocking the view of the bedroom area from the living area. Everything else is just picture perfect, and the light, with windows that just skim the treetops, is sublime. 

It has all the makings of a High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. If this looks to be the lofty urban paradise you’ve always dreamed of, call Lisa today to get the right loan so you can move in and start the new year off right. 

Let’s take a closer look inside this great building and gorgeous unit …

Farmers Market Loft

Lofts tend to feel big because of high ceilings, tall windows, and few interior walls dividing up the space. But today’s Thursday Three Hundred really IS a big space—2,296 square feet with polished concrete floors, exposed ductwork, and huge iron windows that hinge open.

Unit 208 at 2220 Canton St. is located near the downtown Dallas Farmers Market in the historic Olive & Myers Furniture Company Building, constructed in 1925. Now called 2220 Canton, the building was renovated for residential living in 1996 by Corgan & Associates (same folks who did the Adam Hats Lofts nearby in Deep Ellum).

Their beautiful work won a Building Design award from the Dallas chapter of the American Institute of Architects. It is one of the few remaining examples of factory architecture in downtown Dallas and the property is now listed as a City of Dallas Landmark.

Not only does 2220 Canton offer an incredible location in the southwest part of downtown, check out that view from the rooftop pool deck above. Wow. Residents have access to a concierge during normal business hours, as well as a fitness center in the building and 1/3-mile walking track on the roof.

This unusual loft is newly listed by Holly Bock at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International for $390,350.
