Lofts tend to feel big because of high ceilings, tall windows and few interior walls dividing up the space. But unit 208 at 2220 Canton St. really is big: 2,296 square feet.

Newly listed for $390,350 by Holly Bock Deason at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s, the loft is a blank canvas, with white interior walls, polished concrete floors, exposed ductwork and huge iron windows. It’s located within Canton Lofts, formerly the Olive and Meyers Furniture factory, which dates back to 1925.

The neighborhood is totally walkable: Residents can hoof it to nearby Dallas Farmers Market, Deep Ellum and Dallas Arts District. If you have a dog, Deep Ellum Bark Park Central is just a block away. The Green, Blue, Red and Orange DART rail lines are nearby too.

The buyer has to use his or her imagination to see how to configure the space, although there is plenty to work with. What you can see is an all-white renovated kitchen; the only color is in the stainless steel appliances.

Even though it’s spacious, this unit is technically a one bedroom with one-and-a-half baths. That master bathroom is pretty swanky, with a frameless glass shower, separate vanities, soaker tub and marble tile all around.

This unit also has a patio with iron deck and one parking spot.

The building boasts a rooftop pool and walking track, plus a fitness center. Residents can also enjoy movie nights and other social events on the rooftop as well.

The HOA fees are steep: $854 per month. That includes blanket insurance, gas, maintenance of common areas, management fees, trash, and water and sewer. A concierge is available during normal business hours.
