I can’t believe I haven’t already written a post about this awesome building in Chinatown on North Spring Street. The building doesn’t look like it, but it was built in 1890!! Already rented three spaces here and there’s only one left! The remaining space is about 3000 square feet and the owner is only asking $1.20psf ($3600 monthly)! Warehouse style space with cement floors, fresh paint, high exposed ceilings, and tons and tons of natural light! This space has windows on two sides of it and has two entrances/exists, one that takes you to Alameda and one that takes you to Spring Street. Actually, we already did a video of this building which you can check out on our home page to see some before and after media. If you’re not familiar with Downtown LA’s Chinatown and commercial real estate there, renting space at this building is a great way to become acquainted with them. I always say Chinatown is DTLA’s last frontier since I think it’s the least gentrified area. It’s a lot different than Little Tokyo which is really gentrified and diversified, where when you go to Chinatown, it’s like stepping into twenty years back in time. Chinatown seems to be more Chinese than Little Tokyo is Japanese, insofar the diversity of shops and Americanized stores and retailers. That’s definitely not a bad thing! And another good thing is, that space here is relatively inexpensive compared to competing areas… and there’s nothing to generate a more creative vibe for yourself than somewhere completely random! The art scene in Chinatown is still kindled though it has slowed- but you can go check out Chung King Road and there are some galleries there. With the new huge apartment developments coming into Chinatown (along with a brand new Starbucks) change is in the future for Chinatown, and in any case, it will still be an awesome place to own a business and a great place to lease creative office space in Downtown Los Angeles!
