Eastern Columbia Lofts - An Art Deco Masterpiece

Clad in stunning turquoise terra cotta and gold leaf, the Eastern Columbia Building in downtown Los Angeles is undeniably one of Los Angeles's most significant buildings architecturally. Eastern Columbia is an example of zigzag art moderne architecture. It is well regarded as an Art Deco masterpiece and is considered by many architectural enthusiasts to be one of Los Angeles's most remarkable buildings. Among its many noteworthy architectural elements, Eastern Columbia's turqoise glazed terracotta fa├žade is adorned with gilded tiled accents, sunburst motifs, zigzags, chevrons, and stylized animal and plant forms.

Located in the center of downtown Los Angeles at 849 South Broadway, Eastern Columbia is a 13-story building that is easily spotted by its vibrant turquoise color. It is located across the street from the recently restored Orpheum Theatre. The Historic Core is home to many Beaux Arts, Art Deco, and Victorian buildings, many of which were revitalized during the boom years of LA real estate in the early to mid 2000's.

Eastern Columbia Reborn

Eastern Columbia was converted into loft-style condominiums in 2006 by the developer KOR Group, celebrated interior designer Kelly Wearstler, and Killefer Flammang Architects. The redesign has created lofts that are as impressive on the inside as the building's architecture is on the outside. The extensive building renovation has painstakingly restored original elements of the building while infusing it with design elements that are in perfect harmony with the original period details.  The result is a a unique blend of luxurious contemporary upgrades and classic period details.
