LA Times H&G 5.17.07: Eastern Columbia Lofts

May 17, 2007

The much hyped revamp of the beautiful Art Deco-style Eastern Columbia building, is now open and a reality. The Kor Group (of Viceroy fame) with a reported $80 million renovation reopened the building to 147 lofts. Kelly Wearstler designed the lobby. The LA Times peeked into four units who are all first time home buyers. It's intersting to see the varying difference in their interiors. Check out the slideshow and read the story here.

Are there any AT:LA readers that live in there? Anyone know anyone that lives in there? How do you like it? What has the experience of loft living in LA been like? Would any of you consider living there? Share in the comments!
