Foreman and Clark Building Downtown Los Angeles Residential Real Estate Mills Act New Lofts

701 Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014

NEW LOFTS DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES РPlans have changed several times regarding the renovation of the Downtown LA Jewelry District’s historic Foreman and Clark building into new lofts for sale or for lease.  #foremanclark #millsact

Foreman & Clark Building Today
Foreman & Clark Building Today

REAL ESTATE NEWS РThe developer had previously planned to create a mixed-use conversion and and/or a hotel. New homes: The latest construction plans filed with the City of Los Angeles planning department state that the Canadian developer Bonnis Properties intends to convert the 1929 building into residential use with 8,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.  It is not clear yet if the new lofts will be for sale or for lease, but making loft apartments for lease is more likely based on what most other developers have decided to do recently. They are making a pretty penny on the high rents, and the big developers obviously believe that rents will continue their upward trajectory for loft conversion rentals. Prospective home owners can get onto the New Homes Interest List at no cost.

The 13 story historic Foreman and Clark building at 7th and Hill Streets was originally designed by Curlett & Beelman Architects.  The structure was once home to the flagship store for men’s clothing retailer Foreman and Clark on its second through fourth floors. The clothier moved out of this location in the 1960s.

The Art Deco Gothic building is a city Historic-Cultural Landmark for its architectural elements, and because it exemplified the expansion of the early Broadway shopping district according to its application for landmark status.

A bar and restaurants may or may not be the anchors of the future renovation, depending on who you ask and when.  We have also been told that it is actually 165 units that are slated to be created for residential use.

Historic Core Downtown Los Angeles
Historic Core DTLA

It is also said that the developer intends to fill out the 1920s Foreman and Clark building with 124 market-rate apartments (meaning none will be set aside for low-income tenants), with sizes ranging from 470 to 1,075 square feet. The loft redevelopment will also include two penthouses, which will be converted from space that was historically used as mechanical rooms. Hopefully the developer will keep . The penthouses measure about 1,300 and 2,600 square feet, respectively, with the larger penthouse being a prized two-story luxury condominium unit.

The Foreman and Clark building, which sits at the corner of 7th and Hill streets, is rectangular for the first four floors, but then it splits into a U-shaped structure, meaning that on top of the 4th floor, there is open space to be made into communal space for residents.

There will be no parking on site. The building’s never had parking, says Bartolo, and there are no plans to add any.

Bonnis is applying tax credits under the Mills Act right now and also seeking permits. Construction is scheduled to start some time in the next 12 to 15 months. The architect is Los Angeles-based OKB Architects.

HOME PRICES

Property Values:  The above Little Tokyo Loft 3rd floor unit sold this week. Since it went into escrow, prices have increased while inventory has shrunk because the unit was purchased during the holiday season.  The busy real estate season in Downtown Los Angeles starts Jan 2 and stays busy all the way until October 29.

The Little Tokyo Loft south side unit sold for a bit less than the asking price. The unit has a leak in the rooftop drain pipe that extends vertically all the way through the building. The pipe is more than 100 years old, and leaks slightly whenever it rains hard. The Little Tokyo Lofts Homeowners Association is again trying to repair the leak.  The HOA is being sued by another residents who had a leak in his unit, that damaged his rare hollywood prop wallpaper.  Find Downtown and L.A. recently sold loft prices at www.LALoftPrice.com.

Buying a Downtown Loft or Condo? 4 Demands to Make on Your Real Estate Agent #dtla #agent

Are you thinking of buying a Downtown loft? Are you dreading having to walk through strangers’ homes?

2016-10-29-13-00-32

Are you concerned about getting the paperwork correct? Hiring a professional real estate agent can take away most of the challenges of buying. A great agent is always worth more than the commission they charge, just like a great doctor or great accountant.

You want to deal with one of the best agents in the DTLA marketplace. To do this, you must be able to distinguish an average agent from a great one.

Here are the top 4 demands to make of your real estate agent when buying a loft:

1. Tell the Truth About the Price

When making an offer on the home you want to buy, make sure that your agent walks you through their plan for getting both the seller ‚Äď and the bank ‚Äď to accept that price. Too many agents will just take the offer that you suggest and then try to ‚Äėwork‚Äô both you and the seller in the negotiating phase later. In a competitive market, you need an agent who is going to help you make the best ‚Äėinitial offer‚Äô so that you stand out from the crowd. Every condo¬†in today‚Äôs market must be sold twice ‚Äď first to you and then to your bank.

The second sale may be more difficult than the first. When prices are surging, it is difficult for appraisers to find adequate, comparable sales (similar properties in Downtown Los Angeles that closed recently) to defend the selling price when performing the appraisal for the bank. A red flag should be raised if your agent is not discussing this with you at the time of the original offer.

2. Understand Your Timetable

You will be moving into a new home. Whether the move revolves around the start of the new school year or a new job, you will be trying to put the move to a plan.

This can be very emotionally draining. Demand from your agent an appreciation for the timetables you are setting. Your agent cannot pick the exact date of your move, but they should exert any influence they can to make it work.

3. Remove as Many of the Challenges as Possible

It is imperative that your agent knows how to handle the challenges that will arise. An agent’s ability to negotiate is critical in this market.

Remember: If you have an agent who was weak negotiating with you on parts of the purchase offer, don’t expect them to turn into a superhero when they are negotiating with the seller for you.

4. Find the Right Loft!

There is a reason you are putting yourself through the process of moving.

You are moving on with your life in some way. The reason is important or you wouldn’t be dealing with the headaches and challenges that come along with buying. Do not allow your agent to forget these motivations. If they discover something needs to be done in order to attain your goal, insist that they have the courage to inform you.

Good agents know how to deliver good news. Great agents know how to deliver tough news. In today’s market, YOU NEED A GREAT DOWNTOWN LOFT SPECIALIST AGENT!
