Lofts in Downtown Los Angeles

Lofts, the new urban living trend in Los Angeles.

Find green business solutions
Although downtown Los Angeles has seen an influx of loft dwellers since 2000 -- the population has doubled to 34,000 -- many urban planners see it as a work still very much in progress.

Even the most ardent of downtown supporters agree that the area has not yet reached a critical mass -- in part because most of downtown's rejuvenation is occurring in pockets rather than across the entire zone.

New downtown dwellers still complain about a lack of shopping and that for every newly vibrant street, there are others that still seem dead. The high-end retailers that downtown boosters would love to have in the city center have kicked the tires but still not agreed to put stores there.

Lofts as High Density Living Alternative

Gilmore Associates redeveloped the San Fernando Building at 400 S. Main Street available for home-based business tycoons.

Located on 4th street between Main and Spring in the heart of historic downtown Los Angeles, the Old Bank District is made up of three turn of the century buildings now converted into 230 live/work lofts.

Typical of converted historic and industrial structures, the lofts feature high ceilings, large windows and sweeping city views; while the growing neighborhood offers restaurants and cafés with outdoor patios, markets, a gallery and retail stores.

Fledgling Neighborhood

Urban pioneers have the opportunity to shape a community, just like our ancestors faced an open plain and worked to build thriving communities and villages.

Today's high-rise communities come with some structure in place, but the amenities of informal education, parks, entertainment and social events are all there for the making by creatives of the 21st century frontier.

Second Largest City -- Donald J. Trump Award

Tom Gilmore was selected to receive the first "Trump Award" by the Beverly Hills/Greater Los Angeles Real Estate Association. Presented December 1st, 2006 to Tom Gilmore at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
