Welcome to the Historic Higgins Building, Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #873! Originally built in 1910 by Thomas Higgins, a copper tycoon, it housed the first power plant west of the Mississippi River. This gorgeous building has been maintained, continually restored. From the lobby to the units, this building has high ceilings, large original zinc windows and doors, iron caged elevators which were rebuilt in birds eye maple, and a mix of tile and concrete polished floors. Renovations, including fresh paint, have just been completed on the exterior. The basement houses the 1920's, copper drenched iconic Edison Bar. (Currently closed but Higgins residents have VIP access upon reopening.-tenant to investigate.) The building offers front desk security with key fob for lobby and elevator access. The rooftop offers sweeping views of Downtown skyscrapers, view of City Hall as well as the Los Angeles Times Building with multiple seating options and tables for dining or socializing. Lovely Loft 612 has unique features for units in this building! The open floor plan offers the more tranquil courtyard interior view. The L shaped unit only has 1 common wall. Sliding black privacy screening has been added to delineate the ample bedroom which is roughly 15ft x 15ft creating a separate space from the rest of the living area. (Measurement does not include the closet area - there are 2 closets!) Mounted Samsung Smart TV in bedroom area is included. The full bath includes black & white tiling and brand new Whirlpool High Efficiency washer and dryer. The kitchen offers ample storage cabinetry and countertop space with dining island. New Fridge included in rental! The large zinc windows have drapes with magnets to adjust for the light and privacy you choose. This location is a great proximity to everything DTLA has to offer including shopping, live performance venues, fantastic restaurants and a vast array of nightlife.
