The Walnut Building, built in 1921 and renovated in 2018 by Hillcrest, the Walnut Building offers authentic industrial artist studios with the highest level of comforts, services, and amenities Downtown LA has to offer. The building features much of the original character with stunning industrial windows, classic exposed brick, and polished concrete flooring. Units feature dramatic ceiling heights, unobstructed views, sun drenched spaces and high end modern finishes. The combination of industrial and contemporary design make The Walnut Building the new star of the Arts District. Each home is designated live/work and has purposeful design features including Caesarstone counter tops, stainless steel Samsung appliances, spa like deep soaking tubs, and top of the line LG washer/dryers in each unit.
The community features an onsite gym, two rooftop patios, outdoor lounge areas, video conference and meeting rooms as well as onsite parking and onsite staff. They offer parcel delivery services, bike parking, pick-up and drop off dry cleaning, in unit bi-weekly maid service and bi-weekly onsite car washes. The building also boasts interior art by Cyrcle, a two man art collective that focuses on life, duality and the human condition combined with the aesthetic consideration of form, typeface, color and balance. This creates their signature style that greets residents and guests upon entering the building’s lobby. Their art can be seen around DTLA at the Freehand Hotel and Rossoblu restaurant. The building’s exterior features a mural by Vhils, a Portuguese artist whose groundbreaking bas-relief carving technique can be seen on his installations around the world. He has been featured in some of the top modern art museums including the EDP Foundation (Lisbon), Centre Pompidou (Paris), Barbican Centre (London), CAFA Art Museum (Beijing), and the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (San Diego).
The Walnut Building is a collaborative community bringing art, production, and creatives together in one special place. Residents will enjoy onsite cocktail hours, screenings, public art in common spaces, installations, and collaborative events with local businesses.
