The Toy Factory Experience

Linear City LLC plans to open the groundbreaking 121-unit Toy Factory Lofts for occupancy this summer.

The lofts offer incomparable quality and value in a building that can never be rebuilt. The project, which began in March 2001, represents the culmination of three years of careful planning and meticulous execution.

With prices starting at $250,000, only five larger lofts remain for purchase, and 11 ground-floor retail and live-work spaces are available for lease. The opportunity to own or lease a never-before-occupied Toy Factory loft will soon be gone.

Located at 1855 Industrial St. in the thriving Downtown Arts District, and occupying a classic industrial building originally constructed by the Santa Fe Railroad for the Star Truck Warehousing Company in 1924, the Toy Factory Lofts features unparalleled amenities, including skyline views, a breathtaking and spacious rooftop pool, an inviting lower rooftop garden, secure in-building parking, concrete and steel construction, 20-foot ceilings, sandblasted sculptural concrete columns, stainless steel cabinets and appliances, plug-and-play data/telecom/cable/satellite TV, and ground-floor retail.

Toy Factory Lofts offers the opportunity to join a creative and exciting community with roots nearly three decades deep. The lofts are set against a landscape rich with industrial and architectural history, in a neighborhood infused with the city's historic cultural and economic roots, and adjacent to the railroads that fed the commerce that propelled Los Angeles into the 20th century. Close to the L.A. River and several historic bridges, the Toy Factory building is in the center of an evolving creative community.

Retail spaces will offer tenants the opportunity to serve an untapped and growing population in the evolving Tribeca of Los Angeles. The ground floor spaces feature 20-foot ceilings prefect for restaurants, fitness studios, a New York-style market, dry-cleaning drop off and pick up, art gallery, boutique, cafe and other services.
