Defining a loft in Boston is a lot like the shorthand for obscenity: You know it when you see it. Well, when we see Unit 3/DE at the McLaughlin Building in the North End, we know it's a loft. C'mon: the soaring ceilings, the exposed brick and beams, the big windows in the old cast-iron building—it practically cries out for bulbous wine glasses and soft jazz.
The 3-BR, 2.5-BA, 2,720-square-foot spread with not one, but two study nooks hit the sales market Thursday through Otis & Ahearn for a cool $2,095,000. Hefty as that tag may appear, it doesn't even place Unit 3 D/E amongst the North End's 10 priciest right now.
