The lofts at Barker Block were created with an incredibly unique aesthetic, mixing contemporary finishes with histroic materials and details. Each one is individually crafted with its own inventive palette.
Barker Block is an adaptive reuse of an historic warehouse. This allowed them to keep and repurpose original and historic elements, like exposed rafters showing a century of character, period wood floors and brick walls from the early 1900s. These act as a backdrop to the modern finishes, sleek countertops, designer cabinetry and stainless appliances and steel staircases. Totally authentic and entirely one of a kind, this is genuine live-work loft.
Barker Block allows a feeling of real freedom. Each home has been individually crafted with a unique variation of these materials, giving every one its very own persona. All of this is matched a gym with a view, luxury rooftop deck with swimming pool, hot tub spa, comfy lounge chairs, and cabanas that extends your home and living experience through retreats and spaces that bear the signature Kor resort style and flair.

Barker Block was created for beautiful and sustainable living. By reinventing an original warehouse, they repurposed and reused many existing structures and materials, like brick walls, wood floors, timber rafters and concrete floors. This preserves historic elements with irreplaceable character, while requiring that fewer raw materials be taken from the earth – conserving natural resources and reducing the building’s construction footprint.
In addition to the eco-friendly nature of adaptive reuse, the homes are very energy-efficient with Energy Star appliances, insulating dual pane windows and water-efficient landscaping. Barker Block is also at the heart of a walkable neighborhood and close to job centers and public transit, which reduce the need for driving.
