What do Oreos have in common with the Arts District? The answer lies at 1850 Industrial Street. The Biscuit Company Lofts sit here occupying 7 floors and 187,000 square feet at the intersection of Industrial and Mateo. It was constructed in 1925 as the west coast headquarters of the National Biscuit Company, better known as Nabisco. Nabisco has an interesting association with American architecture having opened their first corporate office in the world’s first skyscraper, the Home Insurance Building, in 1898 in Chicago. They looked to make a similar splash in Los Angeles and hired EJ Eckel to construct their California offices.
In 2006 the building underwent a $25 million dollar renovation to convert the building into 104 live/work condo units. The 2007 declaration as designated historical monument made the building Mills Act eligible.
This prestigious address has attracted former celebrity tenants such as Nicholas Cage, Vincent Gallo, and Justin Lin. The building features amenities such as a 24 hour doorman, a 75 foot pool, and a full size gym. The Arts District itself features some of Los Angeles’ best restaurants and the upcoming addition of Soho House.
