Mercer Vine is pleased to introduce the listing of 1850 Industrial St., Unit 701. Located in Downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District, the home sits in the heart of the city’s cultural scene. The two-story loft has over 2,000 square feet of interior living space and includes a private rooftop deck with 360-degree vistas of DTLA and beyond.

Live in A Piece of Los Angeles History

Constructed in 1925, the Biscuit Company Lofts once served as the west coast headquarters for the National Biscuit Company (Nabisco). The building was designed by E.J. Eckel and persists as one of the most iconic historic buildings in the area. The Mills Act approved building was once home to notable figures such as Nicholas Cage, Vincent Gallo, Justin Lin, Michelle Shocked, and David Willardson. In 2008, the lofts won the Chicago Renovated Buildings Award for Residential Structures. 


The Exterior

The Biscuit Company Lofts sit on the intersection between Industrial St. and Alameda St. The exterior’s exposed red brick and intricate stonework adds to the building’s vintage industrial air. The building’s outdoor amenities include a 75-foot saltwater lap pool and dog walk area. An outdoor entertaining area complete with BBQ and fire pit is ideal for hosting guests. An indoor gym with state-of-the-art equipment is also available for the building’s residents.

The Interior

The interior of Penthouse 701 is divided into two stories, plus an additional 3rd level of approximately 1,000 square feet of private rooftop patio deck. On the first story, soaring ceilings, sumptuous wooden floors, and original brick walls perfectly reflect the loft’s mixture of history and modernity. The open stainless-steel kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances adjacent to a formal dining area. A guest half bathroom is nearby for guests sitting in the lounge space. Across from the kitchen is a living area set against an exposed brick wall. Wide factory windows bathe the space in warm, natural light as they overlook downtown against a stunning metropolitan skyline.

Nestled away in the loft’s first story is an open wine cellar that sits behind a historic factory door. An office area adjacent to a full bathroom is also located on the first story. A wooden floating staircase leads up to the second story and master suite. The towering ceilings and factory window motifs are continued in the bedroom. Here, floor-to-ceiling windows flood the suite with sunlight during the day and moonlight during the evening. The bedroom features a private furnace-style fireplace recalling the loft’s industrial past. Adjacent is the master bath, which features a vessel sink, bath, and shower set against marble. Just beyond the master suite is a private laundry room. A sliding glass door from the bedroom opens to a private outdoor area with a staircase leading to the loft’s third level rooftop patio. Once on the private rooftop, 360-degree views of the city span from DTLA all the way to The Pacific.


Lifestyle in DTLA’s Arts District

The Biscuit Company Lofts are located in the center of the city’s cultural influence. Since the loft comes with two deeded parking spaces in the building’s underground garage, you’ll never have to deal with the stress of finding parking in DTLA. Some of the city’s trendiest restaurants and cafes are just minutes away. Dining spots like Bestia, Church & State, Blue Bottle, Zinc and Urban Radish are popular choices for locals. The neighborhood is also replete with local and international art galleries such as Hauser, Wirth, & Schimmel. The upcoming “At Mateo” shopping plaza is also nearby.
