Ara and Chris decided to move in together and looked endlessly for a loft, but couldn't find the right space. They kept coming back to a loft building on Abbot Kinney as the model for their dream home, but every unit was already occupied. Ara constantly kept her eye on the building and after a long wait, a unit was finally available. Within a day, Ara and Chris snatched it up.
