The property is located on approximately 30 acres just south of the popular Arts district in Downtown Los Angeles, which has recently become a bustling area for residential, creative office, retail and restaurant growth. The assorted mix of creative retail and restaurants provides the area with a distinct collection of brands not found in more commercially known districts throughout Los Angeles. The property consists of 9 buildings with 1,735,000 rentable square feet. Built by the Southern Pacific Railroad as a terminal and wholesale market for produce and goods entering Los Angeles by rail, the buildings are considered excellent examples of early 20th century industrial architecture and are eligible for listing under the National Register of Historic Places. The buildings typify industrial Beaux-Arts style with large open floor plans, ideal bay depths, bright multi-pane windows and significant architectural details. The main buildings of the property are currently home to many lifestyle brands and retailers, including Splendid, Ella Moss, HauteLook, GoJane, and American Apparel. The adjacent Produce Market contains three two-story buildings surrounding a central parking / distribution yard and is currently operating as a wholesale produce market that is responsible for 1% of the produce that hits American tables, according to the Los Angeles Produce Market Association.
