I am looking to move to this area or within an hour of this area and really want to live in a loft style apartment of some sort. I need a one bedroom and would really like exposed brick, but if it has modern colors and looks artsy that isn't necessary. I like the warehouse conversions a lot as well. My budget will be around 800-900 all inclusive (does not have to be technically all inclusive as long as my bills wouldn't be more than that). My big problems is I have two dogs one under 20 lbs so he is no problem but the other is a dalmation and some consider those agressive breeds. I am having trouble finding a nice place that would allow two dogs/a dalmation/a large dog that isn't over 1000 dollars. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if this even exists. I live in Iowa and have found a bit on search engines but I don't know what to look for specifically and thought maybe someone in the area that has knowledge of these style of apartments could be some help to me. Also, I know around here some places have rules about college students. I have graduated from undergrad and am looking to apply to graduate school in the next year so I am not currently a student. Please, please let me know!! Thanks so much!

I don't know what they rent for, but Durham has many old tobacco warehouses no longer in use. Some warehouses have been converted into condos like this one:

Durham is your spot. American Tobacco, West Village, Golden Belt, etc... all offer loft living like you want.

Another area which is on the rise, though far more rural, is Saxapahaw. They have a converted mill which, I believe, has some loft spaces.

River Mill in Wake Forest occasionally has condos for rent in your price range. Pets are usually allowed with a deposit depending on the owner of the condo. I have a dal too, so I feel your pain about the predjudice against them! Good luck!
