Property Description

Timeless elegance in one of the most lovingly converted and restored historic loft buildings in all of Los Angeles. There are plenty of “loft buildings” in downtown LA but the Rowan is unique among all in it’s obsessive attention to detail, it’s grateful nod to history yet unabashed acknowledgement of the demand for modern comfort and convenience. The Rowan building was designed at the turn of the last century by noted Los Angeles architect John Parkinson, whose works include our City Hall, The Coliseum, Union Station and Bullocks Wilshire to name a few. Parkinson’s work veritably defines the word “iconic.” Starting life as an office building in 1912, The Rowan was reborn as residential lofts in 2008. No expense was spared, down to the restoration of the copper and brass finish on the stairway, the careful rebuilding and re-use of the beautiful and massive original mahogany framed windows or the lavish use of sound proofing materials in the floors, ceilings and walls to the tune of $7,500 worth of materials alone being used in each unit for sound attenuation! 318 benefits above and beyond that from its corner location, having, aside from the unit above, only a single common wall on the south side. City living does NOT preclude peace and quiet in your own sanctuary! Italian kitchen cabinetry, quartz counters, stainless steel appliances including Bosch stove and Hansgrohe faucet sleekly line the east wall of the open living area and play off the exposed brick and massive double hung windows along the wall opposite. A newly installed barn door style slider stylishly and discreetly hides a stacked washer and dryer in the laundry area located between the bedroom and the bath, which includes a luxuriously deep soaking tub and large stone counter topped vanity. Building amenities include 24/7 manned security at the entrance, a community room with wi-fi, kitchen, eating & working area, and a cushy lounge area with flat screen tv. The wonderful out door area includes 2 barbeques, separate hot and cold plunge pools, numerous separate sitting areas with fire tables, a dog run and even a super cozy, bamboo forest-ed(!) dining area! And on top of it all, the historic nature of the building and the care with which it was renovated qualify owners for Mills Act property tax relief, lowering the yearly tax payments by as much as 70% of what they might otherwise be. An absolute gem of urban sophistication and style in one of the most vibrant parts of our city available now. You do not want to miss this one!
