old-bank-art-walk-alley-lights-lalbLocated in the Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles, the Old Bank District provides an ever-expanding assortment of dining, pubs, art venues, shops and entertainment for Downtown loft residents. The Historic District has evolved during Downtown’s renaissance with revitalization of old buildings and new construction in the neighborhood.

The neighborhood was the financial district in the early 1900s with some of the tallest buildings at that time hovering around 12 stories.  As 30-story skyscrapers started being built in the 1960s to 1990s, the new financial district replaced the Old Bank district as the central hub of finance on the West Coast.

The district resembles the metropolitan life of New York City, with the new vibe of Downtown’s amazing renewal. The Old Bank District original character has been re-captured and has blossomed into a modern neighborhood where creative productivity, home life, entertainment and relaxation all combine with imagination and class. Urbanites of all persuasions and lifestyles are drawn to the area for its powerful combination of creativity and entertainment, along with the flavor of genuine Los Angeles flair, where many have set up their businesses and lives.

The Historic Core was the center of the city before World War II. With the general decline of downtown after World War II, and the movement of all financial institutions several blocks to the west, ending up on Figueroa Street, Flower Street, and Grand Avenue, the area suffered. This came with the abandonment of Downtown by middle and upper income residents occurring in Downtown Los Angeles at the time.

In 1999, the Los Angeles City Council passed an Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance, allowing for the conversion of old, unused office buildings to apartments or lofts. Developer Tom Gilmore purchased a series of century-old buildings and converted them into lofts near Main and Spring streets, a development now known as the Old Bank District. Other notable redevelopment projects in the Historic Core have included the Higgins Building, The Security Building, the Pacific Electric Building, The Judson, and the former Subway Terminal Building, now known as Metro 417.

L.A. Loft Laws – City of Los Angeles Adaptive Reuse Ordinance

Construction of Lofts Los Angeles
Construction of Lofts Los Angeles
LA Loft Laws, Lawsuits and Other Issues

The Adaptive Reuse Ordinance has become one of the most significant incentives related to historic preservation in Los Angeles, facilitating the conversion of dozens of historic and under-utilized structures into new housing units. The Ordinance was originally approved in 1999 for downtown Los Angeles and was extended into other neighborhoods of the city in 2003. It provides for an expedited approval process and ensures that older and historic buildings are not subjected to the same zoning and code requirements that apply to new construction. The result has been the creation of several thousand new housing units, demonstrating that historic preservation can serve as a powerful engine for economic revitalization.  Today, nearly all of the converted lofts have been sold, and there are now very few in the development pipeline, if any.   |   LAWSUITS AND LITIGATION

Los Angeles is a city of innovation and reinvention, and no city policy embodies those principles more than the Adaptive Reuse Ordinance. The Adaptive Reuse Ordinance allows for the conversion of commercial buildings to new uses including apartments, condos, live/work lofts, retail and hotels. When buildings are brought back to life through adaptive reuse, they revitalize neighborhoods by preserving our historic architecture, creating new housing and mixeduse opportunities, and increasing public safety. Adaptive reuse enhances economic growth in urban and commercial cores. The Adaptive Reuse Ordinance originally focused on Downtown, and the results have been truly dramatic. That success led us to expand adaptive reuse citywide, and it’s helping revitalize neighborhoods across the city. The Adaptive Reuse Team helps projects navigate through the permitting and development process as well as qualify for tax credits and other financial incentives.

All buildings in Downtown Los Angeles have problems or issues that prospective buyers should know about before going to look at lofts for sale.

Please do not hesitate to contact them with any questions you may have or to receive any help that you need.   |   LOFT PROBLEMS

The City provides a handbook that assembles in one location the regulations the City of Los Angeles has adopted to encourage “adaptive reuse”—the conversion of existing buildings to new residential uses, including apartments, condos, live/work units, and hotels. The City’s Adaptive Reuse Program works by streamlining the process developers must follow to get their projects approved, resulting in substantial time saving. The Program’s first component, a set of land use ordinances, relaxes parking, density, and other typical zoning requirements. Through fire and life safety measures, the Program’s second component provides flexibility in the approval and permitting process. Since the initial Adaptive Reuse Ordinance and fire and life safety measures went into effect in 1999, over 6,500 units have been completed, or are currently under construction. An additional 4,000 units are in the development pipeline. Based on many successful downtown projects, in 2003 the City expanded the program to cover parts of Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire, Koreatown, Chinatown, Lincoln Heights and Central Avenue. A Zoning Administrator process was also established to enable case-by-case review of adaptive reuse projects citywide. In response to various questions raised by the development community, several clarifying interpretations were also issued, and the fire and life safety measures were updated. Get more info on Adaptive Re-Use Ordinance here.  Some historic loft buildings offer significant property tax discounts under the Mills Act.
