If you are looking for a truly transformed industrial building that now holds some of the North Loop’s most elegant, sophisticated, and luxurious lofts, then you won’t want to miss the opportunity to own a Harvester Loft.
This classic pre-World War I six-story building located on Washington Avenue North was once home to International Harvester Company, an international manufacturer of tractors and farming equipment. While this building housed mainly offices, the large Tower Lofts next door was the former tractor assembly line.
In 2007, 43 gorgeous upscale lofts arose from the vacant building, creating the distinctive Harvester Lofts, a unique residential loft conversion. Inside each unit, you’ll find all the hallmarks of the "industrial chic" style. Insulated concrete floors mix with polished hardwoods and concrete columns exposed original brick, visible ductwork, and flat maple doors offer rugged appeal. The 11-foot ceilings give these lofts that open, airy feel you love.
Overall, lofts are on the cozier side in Harvester, topping out at 1,700 SqFt, making them perfect for couples and individuals who want to be close to dining, recreation, and nightlife. If you’re looking for help decorating your new Harvester loft, you don’t have to go far. Dwelling Designs, an interior design specialist, is in the base of the building.
You’ll also find elegant contemporary kitchens with high-end finishes, sleek wood cabinetry, and distinctive Silestone quartz countertops for unsurpassed luxury, shine, and durability. Upscale fixtures and appliances make for gourmet European kitchens, and energy-efficient floor-to-ceiling windows flood your loft with warming natural light.
Atop the building sits three newly constructed penthouses that have private rooftop terraces. Some units have balconies to relish your morning coffee, afternoon tea, or evening aperitif while taking in the lovely views of downtown. Every loft in Harvest is peppered with historic charm, and no two are alike. You’re only a few blocks west of the Mississippi Riverfront, and adjacent to some of the North Loop’s most vibrant bars, coffeehouses, and bistros.
As a resident of Harvester Lofts, you’ll love the beautiful water feature in the building’s lobby. Every day you’ll be greeted by the elegant and calming sight and sounds. Your association fees cover your water and sewer services, as well as trash removal and basic cable. Heated underground parking is yours to enjoy year-round, while guests park at metered spaces along the street.
Don’t spend your weekends cleaning gutters or mowing the lawn. At Harvester Lofts, all landscaping, lawn care, snow removal, and exterior maintenance is taken care of for you. The building is professionally managed for safety, security, and reliability of services.
