The Toy Factory Lofts building was completed in 1924 for the Star Truck Warehousing Company by the Western Land Improvement Company, the land development arm of the Santa Fe Railroad.
Unique to the building is its curved north elevation, which follows the arc of an out-of-srvice Santa Fe Railroad spur. With massive, poured-in-place concrete columns and floor structure, the Toy Factory building was designated a civilian bomb shelter in World War II.
In 1974, the property was purchased for use as a toy factory by Ace Novelty and then the Play-by-Play company. Linear City LLC purchased the Toy Factory property for conversion to live/work lofts in 2002.
