Located in LA’s hip Arts District, the ROW DTLA Buildings 2 & 3 Project transformed several large warehouse and industrial buildings constructed between 1917 and 1923 at the historic LA Terminal Market into creative office, retail and food service uses. This two-phase adaptive reuse & extensive renovation project included moderate historical renovation, seismic retrofit, new building core and lobby areas, and the replacement of the stairs, elevators, HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems for both buildings. Building 3 was one of the first projects to be completed under the new City of LA seismic retrofit ordinance for non-ductile concrete structures.
Building 2 is a 6 story, 420,000 SF warehouse style building with basement parking. Building 3 is a 6 story, 420,000 SF warehouse style building with fully occupied basement. Rooftop decks were added to Building 2 to accommodate event space for future office or restaurant tenants. New catwalks built from material salvaged from the demolition of the existing loading docks serve as the entrances to the building. Building 3 included structural upgrades throughout the entire building, major core and shell work, and infrastructure at the basement and ground floors to accommodate a future bakery, brewery, market, coffee lab and several restaurants.
