Home of the Week: Ultimate loft living in DTLA’s landmark jewel
Rising above the Broadway Theater District, the world-famous Streamline Moderne Eastern Columbia Building is one of the most sought-after addresses in Downtown Los Angeles. Chances to own one of its stylish lofts are rare, especially for larger units like this one. 

At 1,740 square feet, it’s one of the biggest floorplans at the Eastern – surrounded by huge double-paned windows that wash the space with light, open to a breeze, and close to hush the sounds of the city. A balcony enjoys stunning head-on views of LA’s Historic Core, a blend of legendary landmarks and bold new architectural statements.

A new chef's kitchen with Viking appliances, built-in bar and Bosch dishwasher opens to the entire space, making entertaining a delight. Two bedrooms and baths are set off the main space. Two parking spaces are designated in the attached garage, which directly accesses the mezzanine mail center.

The Eastern Columbia experience starts far beyond its lofts. It begins with a magnificent Art Deco entryway to a large, elegant lobby/seating area, where front desk personnel welcome your guests and assist with deliveries. It ends at the building’s famous rooftop pool, where a fireplace counterpoints the night lights as one of the clocks on the Eastern’s turquoise terra cotta tower surveys the scene. Even the spa and workout room enjoy amazing city views. 

Just outside is the burgeoning Historic Core scene, including the Ace Hotel, the Orpheum Theater and an array of shopping and dining choices. Grand Central Market is blocks up the street, and South Park is moments away.

Because the Mills Act applies to this historic landmark, owners qualify to save over 75% on annual property taxes. This is a rare opportunity to enjoy loft living in one of LA’s most illustrious jewels.

849 South Broadway is offered at $1,495,000 by Bill Cooper.
