Barker Block Warehouse No. 1

DTLA’s highly anticipated final phase of Barker Block — Warehouse No. 1 — has finally graced the Arts District with 68 new live-work lofts, which opened this weekend.  Lofts are being sold 15 units at a time, with an anticipated final release of April 2014.

Barker Bros., the upscale furniture company, once housed their furnishing plans, studios, and supplies inside the 1900’s crimson brick building, leaving their flagship Downtown L.A. store in the mid-1980’s.  It’s quite fitting that The Kor Group (Santa Monica’s Viceroy, DTLA’s Eastern Columbia, Broadway Hollywood, Viceroy Palm Springs) and moneyed firms CityView and Blackstone partnered up to bring you the renewed, sleek, sexy, urban, boutique community that is Warehouse No. 1.

Site Plan

The development’s main entrance on Molino Street leads you into a lobby, replete with ubiquitous fig trees, several lounge chairs, table shuffleboard for your waiting guests, and a revolving art gallery.  The area is the perfect pedestrian causeway to and from your live-work condo — and will be your only commute to dinner once the restaurant opens up.

Inside most lofts, you’ll find concrete floors, dual-pane windows, Jenn-Air stainless steel appliances, quartz kitchen countertops, Nest thermostats, in-unit washer and dryer hook-ups, and ceramic tile floors in the bathrooms.

In select lofts, additional features include: polished concrete or wood floors, oversized windows, vaulted ceilings with timber beams, private patios or balconies, and — for the townhome units, steel staircases.  Fancy!

Pricing for the first release of 15 units range from $435,000 to $739,000, square footage from 680 to 1,350, and monthly HOA fees from $364 to $438. One deeded parking space comes with each unit.

For community amenities, the rooftop heated pool and adjoining gym can’t be beat — the skyline view of Downtown L.A. is simply stunning.
