The 1,100-square-foot loft rests atop baby brewery Coalition Brewing, facing SE Ankeny Street between 27th and 28th, (A.K.A. prime people watching turf). Other neighbors: Crema Bakery & Café, Esparza’s Tex Mex (across the street), The Grilled Cheese Grill, and Vino, a cute wine shop and bar. And mere blocks away, some of Portland’s best eateries line SE 28th Street, among them Tabla, Navarre, Ken’s Artisan Pizza, Bamboo Sushi, and Alma Chocolates.

The loft is equipped with a radiant heat concrete floor, a small covered balcony, and two huge garage-door windows that you can roll up to turn your entire living room into an kind of outdoor space. You also have a flat-screen TV, but with the bustling street scene, we doubt you’ll ever switch it on.

If you manage to resist the lure of SE 28th Street’s restaurants, an enormous commercial kitchen awaits in the loft’s core, courtesy of Noble Rot, which used the space as its commercial kitchen before moving to the E Burnside location. (The wine bar and restaurant used to sit in what is now Coalition Brewing.)

No rental car? No problem. The Box & One loft comes with a pair of city cycles (and helmets). Perfect for sightseeing and quick trips to Whole Foods to stock up on ingredients to use in your sweet kitchen.

Bellies full (and with that kitchen how could they not be?), fall into the loft’s California king bed, adorned with headboard art by Brian Kappel of Portland’s Space Money Designs.
