Sky Lofts – 801 GrandLos Angeles, CA
CIM Group/Lee Homes
2007 PCBC Gold Nugget Award of Merit
Best Adaptive Reuse Project
The Sky Lofts Condominiums exemplify the adaptive re-use of a commercial office building into the mixed-use of residential condominiums and commercial space. The top eleven floors of the existing building have been redesigned for residential high-rise condominium-style living with expansive views of Downtown Los Angeles. New amenities include a motorcourt porte-cochere, common area, media room and health-club. New open-access windows were installed for residents comfort and elevator provision was modified to give residents a private and secure entrance. Construction took place while the lower floors were occupied.
