University Village Lofts with Unique Industrial Heritage

The Otis Loft Apartments 

These University Village loft apartments prove that converted factory lofts can be equally bold and cozy at the same time. The industrial elements salvaged from the building’s past life as an elevator factory lend the units a lived-in quality. And as a quick disclaimer, no -- there isn’t a specific fire pit on the grounds of The Otis. There are, however, several grilling areas and a sprawling rooftop patio that regularly hosts happy hours, outdoor yoga classes or provides a chill space to get work done outside of the apartment. So you might say that, despite not having a fire pit, the rooftop scene at The Otis is still pretty lit.
