Barker Block Homeowners Association
Los Angeles is widely renowned for its innovative, world-class arts scene, and nowhere in the city has that scene coalesced more than in the downtown Arts District. In the heart of this thriving artistic community sits the Barker Block Homeowners Association, a historic industrial building now boasting 310 cutting edge live/work artist lofts.
Barker Block is a unique living concept housed in a renovated and restored early 20th-century factory and warehouse of Barker Brothers Furniture. Mixing life, art, energy and home, this community offers one of the most beautiful and intriguing living experiences. The surrounding blocks are full of independent shops, boutiques, bars, avant restaurants, the ever-popular Urth Caffe, endless creative studios, art galleries and low key spots waiting to be discovered.
In this adaptive reuse of a historic warehouse, the developers saved the building’s original details, including exposed brick, heavy timber beams and columns, wood and concrete floors. In the renovation and repurposing, they added environmentally friendly, modern conveniences, but meticulously preserved timeless and historic character.
The Association recently renovated its rooftop amenities which include a heated pool, spa, cabanas, fire-pits, dining area, BBQ grills and a fitness center with spectacular views of DTLA’s cityscape. There is also plenty of space to enjoy in the lower grounds where you will find outdoor courtyards and a breezeway where residents and guests often gather for work meetings, etc. These are just a few of the striking features of this discreetly high profile landmark!
This dynamic community is a true gem offering superior housing in what is now one of the hottest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, Arts District!
