The Ostrich Farm live-work lofts are in South Pasadena near Arroyo shopping, dining, yoga studios, the Gold Line and the 110 freeway. Set in a clean, quiet upscale location, these Ostrich Farm Lofts come complete with concrete floors, industrial vaulted ceilings and open air walkways.
These 53 loft condominium units were developed in 2006 from the historic Cawston Ostrich Farm, an historic landmark building. The Ostrich Farm Lofts range in size from approximately 700 square feet to over 2000 square feet of living in a project that is known for its adaptive reuse of a former factory. There are gardens and terraces in a gated environment. The units feature high ceilings and polished concrete floors. The locale is an easy walk to the Gold Line Light Rail System, and also the outstanding store and restaurants of South Pasadena.
One of Downtown’s residents or visitors with a keen eye for photography has a chance to win a $500 LA Loft Blog gift certificate by sending a photo of Downtown loft living, architecture, interiors, skyline or other facet of Downtown life.
Los Angeles, CA (April 18, 2015) The L.A. Loft Blog, the authority on Downtown Los Angeles residential real estate, is pleased to announce the first ever LA Loft Blog photography contest for Downtown’s residents and visitors. “The renaissance of Downtown Los Angeles helped the city to set a record of more than 40 million total visitors last year,” says L.A. Loft Blog Publisher Realtor Corey Chambers, “A photography contest is a great chance for our readers to show off their home improvement and decorating skills.” While photos of loft interiors and loft living are highly encouraged, all pics related to Downtown will be considered in the judging. The winner will receive a $500 L.A. Loft Blog gift certificate that can be used toward a residential lease, purchase or sale. Or if not making a move in the next 6 months, the winner may instead choose to receive a check for $250 cash.
The LA. Loft Blog is the #1 source of photographs that depict buildings, lofts and city life of Downtown Los Angeles.

Broadway Improvement – Downtown Gets New Tables and Chairs on the Street
Broadway is now under rapid redevelopment. Eastern Columbia lofts owners will be among the first to gain from the improvements in the form of improved quality of life around the building with dozens of new stores and restaurants replacing the cheap tchatchkies stores, which will also lead to equity gains for homeowners from an improved neighborhood.
This week, the City of Los Angeles added tables, chairs with bistro umbrellas. A portion of the street on Broadway has been blocked off by planters and pylons, a sealed brown gravel has been added to give an earthy appearance, and table and chairs have been added, along with bistro style shade umbrellas.
The benefits are obvious, giving much needed outdoor seating now available for those visiting the restaurants and markets. The pedestrian-friendly vibe makes a huge difference in the comfort and happiness of residents and visitors.
The criticisms are equally obvious. The brown pebble road covering is a bit too earthy — as in dirty looking, a la 1850 Los Angeles unpaved streets. It is unknown if the planters can slow down an out-of-control car going any significant speed. Those pedestrians with dogs will appreciate the outdoor seating, but, with cars driving just inches away, will need to keep Fido on a tight leash while dining.
