What do we like about Douglas Building Lofts?
The Douglas Lofts, originally constructed in 1898 and lovingly restored in 2005, offer a collection of 50 distinctive New York-style loft units, each unique in size and floor plan, nestled in the heart of the Historic Core District of Downtown Los Angeles.
The Douglas Building stands as an iconic presence at the corner of Third and Spring Streets within this storied Downtown neighborhood. Located just a block away from the renowned Bradbury Building, the Douglas Building stands as a testament to T.D. Stimson (1827 - 1898), a luminary who transitioned from a lumber baron to a real estate tycoon, fostering commercial development in Los Angeles during the 1890s. As one of the few remaining treasures of 19th-century Los Angeles architecture, the Douglas Building remains bold and elegant amidst the modern glass and steel surroundings.
Designed in 1898 by San Francisco architects James and Merritt Reid, the Douglas Building was envisioned by Stimson as a flagship office building. Its abbreviated five-story structure represented a marked departure from the ornate Victorian architecture of its time. Across the street, the Stimson Block, a substantial 42-room boarding house, and neighboring ornate two and three-story structures with ground-level retail establishments contributed to the bustling activity and commerce on Spring Street at the turn of the century. These were the days of prosperity and growth that initiated a twenty-year building boom, the first of three during the 20th century.
