Biscuit Company Lofts offers the most exciting new lofts in the best historic building in Downtown Los Angeles. "The Biscuit" is the transformation of the 1925 National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) West Coast bakery. The building is a show-stopper and it features 13- to 28-foot ceilings, refinished 80-year-old maple floors, orange brick walls, and unique terra cotta, granite and copper details. Nabisco spent $2,000,000 building this bakery in 1925 and it shows.
Additional Biscuit amenities include a sharp lobby, doorman, private gardens, a pool surrounded by parkland landscaping, a bistro-style restaurant with bar, oversized and naturally lit hallways, on-site parking, and an excellent location with easy access to freeways in an emerging and creative community.
Unit pricing is from $375,000 to more than $2 million. Occupancy is slated for January 2007. Developer Linear City is creating this vibrant new neighborhood with three world-class live/work projects that bring a population of 1,000-plus to the Arts District, at Industrial and Mateo streets. Biscuit Company Lofts is 60 feet from Linear City's 121-unit Toy Factory Lofts, and down the block from the 116-unit third phase Mill Street Lofts.
Street level vitality and services are provided by Joe's Downtown Market, Royal Clayton's urban tavern, the Church and State bistro at Biscuit Company Lofts, and Physique, a gym at Toy Factory Lofts.
Rare among Downtown loft buildings and a hallmark of Linear City projects, Biscuit Company Lofts features lush gardens and generous common areas. Knibb Design is conjuring spectacular outdoor spaces and landscaped gardens that include a sculpted lap pool and barbecue.
The live/work lofts at Biscuit Company Lofts come in one-, two-, three- and four-story configurations and blend the rich textures and classic forms of the 1925 landmark Nabisco Building with state-of-the-art amenities. Architect Aleks Istanbullu crafted brilliant floor plans while preserving the period details of the historic bakery building. Details include original inch-thick maple hardwood floors, exposed brick, oversized industrial windows and columns with terra cotta finishes. Biscuit Company Lofts offer great space with immense volumes not found at any loft building in Downtown L.A. Ceiling heights are 13, 16, 18 and 30 feet. The Biscuit lofts should be measured in cubic feet.
Biscuit offers protection against interest rate fluctuations. Biscuit buyers can lock in today's interest rate plus one-quarter point. If rates drop in the month of escrow closing, Biscuit buyers can float down to the lower rate.
