This historic, uniquely exceptional Penthouse at the Higgins building features a dramatic 2-story, 3-level living area which includes a private, landscaped 900sf ROOFTOP PATIO, complete with water feature. This Live/Work Loft is the largest floor plan at the Higgins and features huge windows on both sides of this home. The gourmet kitchen is upgraded with Thermador stainless steel appliances, cabinets, marble tops, backsplashes, and center island. The designer bath created with marble and inlaid tile finishes gives you an incredible view of downtown's skyscrapers! The large, open spaces enjoy custom lighting and finishes, ample closets, window treatments, and an in-unit washer and dryer. The back bedroom/office is quiet and private. The dramatic spiral staircase leads to the 2nd level primary bedroom with custom buildouts for the closets. Up from there you and your guests will enjoy one of the largest private patios in downtown Los Angeles. Check out the breathtaking panoramic skyline views. This is a MILLS ACT building, providing substantial property tax savings...... Your neighbors include Plaza de California - the dog park across the street, the historic Vibiana event space which holds Redbird, one of DTLA's finest restaurants, the headquarters of the LAPD, and many fine eateries, bars, shops and nightlife. From here you are within walking distance of the Civic Center, Grand Park, Disney Concert Hall, Museums, Music Center and Little Tokyo! !!! ... The landmark Higgins Building takes downtown history full circle. Surrounding the building lay architectural masterpieces including the Caltrans headquarters, Historic LA Times building, City Hall and the LAPD headquarters. Located in the Historic Core, central to all the dining & nightlife one would expect in Downtown Los Angeles...... Stepping into the lobby entrance, one is immediately taken back to the storied downtown of yore. The interior is graced with vestiges of classic detailing including mosaic tile flooring, caged elevators rebuilt with bird's eye maple, meticulous ironwork, imported marble wainscoting throughout the hallways, original zinc covered doorways, and windows. Complimenting the Higgins is the world class Edison Lounge (scheduled to re-open in September 2023) which sits in the basement of the building. Once the boiler room which supplied power to the offices above, it is now a celebrated historic downtown venue which brings back the nostalgia and glamour of a lost era. A piece of living history, the Higgins building exemplifies the burgeoning community of art, culture, and entertainment in downtown.
