Nestled in one of the luxury apartment buildings of Flatiron, New York City, DHD’s Union Square Loft is a dream come true living space for a city living socialite.
Spacious Open Floorplan
Boasting 3,000 square feet of living space, the loft is modeled after an Atrium style house and features bed and bath area around the permitter with a central open common living space.
The centrally-located kitchen includes unique design elements that make it feel like furniture that naturally inhabits the communal space. The open floor plan flows seamlessly, making it easy to entertain, and the built-in features give the space separation between shared and private areas.
One of many hidden gems in New York City, the Flatiron District was called the Toy District before its transition into a commercial area for up and coming small businesses.
It was once home to clothing and toy manufacturers, but those employers have been replaced by advertising agencies, publishers, and startups who appreciate the quirky idiosyncrasies of the once commercial space. Locals have nicknamed the neighborhood “Silicon Alley” because of technology-based new businesses.
What makes the area so unique are the luxury apartment buildings that are interspersed between the commercial venues. One might not realize it from the outside exteriors, but these unique buildings are home to fantastic living spaces for New Yorkers looking for a high-end space with an uncompromised feel.
What We Love

Architect David Howell incorporated high-end finishes, like luxurious wood floors, built-in kitchen and entertaining areas, open shelving, and modern windows to show off the gorgeous view make the space both modern and glamorous.
The move-in ready space seems even bigger because of the high ceilings and natural light, and interior designer Steffani Aarons staged the property with distinctive and unusual furniture and pieces to add to the overall uniqueness of the space and location.
