Rowan Lofts And Condos
ROWAN: An L.A. INNOVATOR
Built by famed real estate developer Robert A. Rowan and A.C. Bilicke, the building is located at the corner of Fifth and Spring Streets, a prime location in the midst of the flourishing business core, at one time known as “The Wall Street of the West.”
Designed by John Parkinson noted for his architecture of Los Angeles City Hall and The Pacific Stock Exchange and G. Edwin Bergstrom in 1911. From 1905 to 1915 Bergstrom was in partnership with architect John Parkinson. The firm of Parkinson & Bergstrom designed the Los Angeles Athletic Club, the Alexandria Hotel, and the original building of Bullock’s Department Store.
The Rowan Building was formerly home to many of the city’s oldest and most prominent law offices and stock brokerage firms during the golden years of Los Angeles’ downtown area.
Deeply rooted in the history of Downtown Los Angeles, The Rowan is an iconic loft residence within the Old Bank District. Located in the center of an innovative neighborhood with eclectic restaurants, galleries and shops.
The Rowan has exceptional natural lighting by day, and skyline by night. Owing to it’s extremely high ratio of window to square footage, combined with it’s southerly facing orientation. The original mahogany sash is beautifully restored, featuring laminated glass windows in operable frames. Most windows measure 4’x8’ or larger! They provide impressive spectacular city views while also providing natural airflow.

Most 2nd floor residences have decks or balconies with french doors. An exclusive lounge boasts deconstructed art and decor.
