The Los Angeles Times newspaper has recently reported that Downtown Los Angeles hasn’t seen this much construction since the 1920s. 42 developments of at least 50,000 square feet have been built since 2010, according to real estate data firm CoStar. #newhomes #dtla
At Wilshire and Figueroa in Downtown L.A., builders are wrapping up construction of the Wilshire Grand, the tallest building in the West. Created by Korean Air, the skyscraper zooms 1,100 feet high. It consists of a hotel, offices and an observation deck.
A couple blocks away, developer Greenland of China has complete the first condominium building and separate hotel building of its new Metropolis complex, a $1-billion development with 350 hotel rooms and more than 1,500 condo units. River House new condominiums on the Los Angeles River just sold out, and several other new developments, including traditional, townhouse style condos and single family residence houses for sale are under way by the river, as wells as new luxury tower high-rise condominium buildings throughout the Downtown Los Angeles area.
Downtown is changing with tremendous excitement, and along with it, the minds of previous naysayers. Those who only remembered Downtown for its 1980s blight are stunned when they see the vibrant new DTLA. With all of these new homes and infrastructure being built, the Downtown Los Angeles boom is creating more believers than ever before.

Located at 1100 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90017, the famous luxury highrise tower condominium building is now also home to a popular bank branch. The big “1100” that once branded the structure as a sign on the building has now been changed to “Chase.” While some residents are not happy with the major presence of the well-known bank branch, it is convenient to use their ATM, and guests can get free parking when they use the Chase ATM inside the branch.
1100 Wilshire has a fine reputation of quality lofts, luxury amenities and 100% unobstructed views due to its towering pillar of 17 stories of parking spaces. Other amenities include 24 hour security front desk concierge, large fitness center gym, conference meeting room business center, video screening room, rooftop infinity pool deck with cabanas, outdoor kitchen and fire pit, hot tub spa and private event patio.

That’s why those who are considering the move to a competitive city like Los Angeles often need to find the right place quickly and save as much time and money in the process as possible. Those who are relocating to Downtown Los Angeles must sometimes find a place within just a matter of days or even hours. Sometimes they even need to find a place before ever coming into town to see the places. Often the renter needs to apply without seeing the loft, condo or apartment in person. In the old days, it used to be that a prospective renter had to pay $30 to $45 for each application and credit report, over and over again, costing hundreds of dollars. Not any more; now it’s FREE — and renters can use the same free application for more than one place. #apply #lease
Finally an online application is available that is accepted by most landlords, real estate professionals and many different apartments Downtown, the Los Angeles area, and all of California! The new rental service APPLY.LEASE was created by the trusted publishers of the L.A. Loft Blog.
Prospective renters should only complete an application with parties whom they can really trust. To protect personal information and prevent identity theft, do not ever fill out an application for someone who is out of town and cannot talk on the phone. For any online application, always meet the owner/manager/agent in person or call to have a voice telephone conversation. The new APPLY.LEASE service is sponsored by the authorities of Southern California real estate, the L.A. Loft Blog and the SoCal Home Blog. #online #application
Beat out the other renters to the best deals by getting a jump on the competition. Save lots of time and money by completing a single application that is accepted at thousands of different places.

Live/work lofts in Downtown Los Angeles have the best location and building type on the planet. They have some other brilliant attributes.
For the interior, in addition to square footage, the most important criteria for a great investment and a desirable place to live are windows, natural light and view. Check out the hot new listings of lofts with great windows at http://loftwindows.blogspot.com
The L.A. Loft Blog takes a closer look through the windows to discover what makes us feel good in our urban castles called lofts. Live/work industrial and historic residences tend to have larger windows thanks to their high ceilings and above-average construction methods. Many were built during the Roaring 20’s when money was often thought to be plentiful. In Downtown Los Angeles, no other building exemplifies that period better than the Eastern Columbia. Not all of the Eastern units have perfect lighting. The building is surrounded by other tall buildings, and the loft condo units are large and deep, so the backs tend to get a bit dark. But with a couple of decorative wall sconces in the back, and some upscale wallpaper, Eastern Columbia lofts can be top notch in bright feelings.

Many buyers are looking for single family homes with views and pools in desirable neighborhoods near Downtown, Glendale, Eagle Rock, Pasadena, Silver Lake, Elysian Park Lincoln Heights and Montecito Heights.
Many of the hillside homes in Mt. Washington have septic systems, which should be emptied and tested during escrow to ensure that the buyer will not have an extremely expensive surprise after purchase. This is particularly true if the seller was a single occupant, and the buyer is a couple or family. Septic systems are much more likely to get overloaded or backed-up with a large number of residents. The good news is that efficient, maintained septic systems can cost less than City of Los Angeles monthly sewer charges.
These recently sold listings from all real estate companies show the actual prices paid for some of the properties in the past month in various price ranges.

Yesterday and Today, A Splendid Urban Oasis
The Broadway Lofts are located in The Bumiller Building, built in 1906, just before Los Angeles’s Broadway District started to take off. Designed by Morgan & Walls, the building’s floor-to-ceiling light wells and innovative design were praised for channeling natural light to each floor — a feature preserved today in The Broadway Lofts apartments.
Originally housing a high-end department store, Le Bon Marché, the building quickly drew interest from Broadway’s then-booming theater district. By 1907, the Bumiller had made its move from shopping center to theater hub.
The building was the first home to the western branch of the New York-based Eden Musee, a theater for motion pictures and vaudevillian acts. Promising “a show on every floor,” the Musee drew downtown’s growing populace with daily shows in the afternoon and evening. After the Musee moved, the Bumiller housed the Wonderland Theater. Subsequently, the building housed what was known as “The Jade Theater,” named ostensibly for the brilliant and distinctive jade coloring of the building.
The building was born when Los Angeles was a “wild west” frontier town at the turn of the century and found itself by the 1930’s at the core of a vital cultural thoroughfare. By 1931, the world’s highest concentration of movie theaters was found not on Broadway New York, but on Broadway Los Angeles. The Broadway Theatre District’s dozens of theaters could collectively hold over 15,000 patrons, all of whom walked down the neon-lit streets at midnight.
Today, The Broadway Lofts preserves the building’s prominent role in the Historic Broadway Theater District. Blending unique historical architecture with modern design elements, the building is now available for lease to residential tenants.
