More School Lofts
Directly beside the loft from Fri's post, you will find The Loretto Lofts. It too is a converted school. Both schools were owned and run by the Loretto nuns although this building is much older being completed in 1914. It was designed by Neil G Beggs and shows many of the Beaux-Arts design features of that era. Since the building has been historically designated, the front had to be left as originally designed but the other sides have had modern-looking balconies and windows installed. It too boasts a common courtyard. These 2 buildings are the only true lofts in the Annex.
