A true, first generation Soho artist’s loft owned by the late conceptual artist Arakawa and his wife, Madeline Gins, is for sale at $22.5 million.
124 West Houston Street is where the couple created their seminal work “The Mechanism of Meaning,” and where Bob Dylan could often be found rehearsing on the ground floor.
Built around 1900, the 13,150 s/f six-story building retains many of its original elements, according to the listing brokers.
That includes cast-iron details on the façade, slab marble floors, and pressed tin wall treatments and ceilings. It features open views, 12 ft. ceilings, full floors, and no interior columns.
“The property offers endless possibilities, from art production to a palatial personal residence, or for the developer, conversion to full-floor luxury residences,” said Gordon Roberts of Warburg Realty, who is co-listing the property with Eastern Consolidated brokers Alexander Erdos and David Schechtman.
WHEN it comes to digital dating, men crow about their cars. But what women really want to know about is their real estate, according to a survey from MillionaireMatch.com.

The block-long property between Seventh and Eighth Avenues and 149th and West 150th Street, has a total of six walk-up apartment buildings with 537 apartments and 11 commercial units, some of which are also being turned into apartments by the new owners.
The property was bought by E&M Associates — a Brooklyn-based investment and management company run by Irving Langer — during the summer. It was part of a jumbo $139 million portfolio sold by Lehman Brothers. They plan a renovation that includes an interior courtyard, updated interiors and amenities, including a fitness center, playground and added security.
The one-two and three-bedroom will rent from around $1,300 to $2,500 a month, say the brokers.
