Per the Listing: “Newly listed unit #302 now available in the historic Newberry Lofts. Newberry Lofts, located in what is now the Arts District, was originally the primary warehouse for JR Newberry & Co, a Los Angeles grocery store chain, which housed a candy store, blacksmith shop, and restaurant. The building is a representative example of industrial warehouses at the turn of the century. Our beautifully renovated lofts feature exposed brick walls, city views, modern kitchens, baths and unique lighting. Situated walking distance to SCI-Arc, Little Tokyo, Downtown LA, Metro Red & Gold line stops, museums, nightlife. Easy freeway access to 101, 5 & 10 freeways. Extra assigned off-street parking available for $150 a month, also plenty of unrestricted street parking throughout for guest or coworkers.”
Originally built in 1904, the massive Newberry warehouse was converted in the 1980s to residential lofts, which were gussied up in 2012 by real estate development firm M West Holdings. As the Newberry’s publicity materials eagerly explain, the 45 units are “live/work lofts meaning that tenants have the option to run their businesses inside their dwellings.”
