DTLA: Broadway Retail/Creative Office with Basement & HUGE POTENTIAL! (535 S Broadway - $1.25psf/6,950sf


Located on the most under-rated block of Broadway, the block between 5th/6th St, this retail space has GOLDEN POTENTIAL. THE LOCATION: The Spring Arcade Building Food Hall is across the street, along with the basically abandoned looking Arcade, Cameo, and Roxie Theaters.  Donut Fried just moved in next door.  The block has both tons of loft apartments as well as creative office spaces.  Tons of restaurants, bars, cafes, and amenities within very close walking distance.  This block is bound to redevelop with so many large retailers moving in toward the southern side of Broadway including Apple, Gap, Urban Outfitters, Acne Studios, Burlington Coat Factory, and more.  Also on the southern end big developments like the Broadway Trades Center and the Ace Hotel and more have also sparked the redevelopment.  On the opposite northern side Grand Central Market is only a few blocks away and there’s also several very popular bars on the way there. THE BUILDING: Previous tenant was retailer who sold adult gifts, souvenirs, pipes/bongs, and framed pictures.  It was a relic of the old generation of this block.  THE GROUND FLOOR: This ground floor retail space is approximately 3475sf with an approximately 3475sf basement!  Spaces can be rented together or separately.  Rent the basement by itself, it’s only $1psf, but the basement can only legally be used as storage because it only has a single staircase access point.  Starting with the RETAIL this space has WINDOWED FRONTAGE letting in tons of NATURAL LIGHT and plenty of showcasing space. Exterior is painted gray and has a newer gray canopy.  There’s tile flooring through out 3/4 of the ground floor and in the very back is wood flooring.  DROPPED CEILINGS are installed but have been partly removed to expose the SOARING 18 FOOT RAW WOOD EXPOSED CEILINGS!  So the new tenant can put the dropped ceilings back in or remove them completely to make it the INDUSTRIAL COMMERCIAL LOFT LOOK.  There’s also really cool looking earth quake retrofit METAL BEAMS that also add a lot of character and an industrial vibe to the style as well.  CENTRAL HVAC is also installed (not sure if it works) but ducts would have to be replaced if the dropped ceilings were removed. There’s pretty cool lighting currently installed.  In the back there’s a private office and a large back room area that could be made into a common area for a separate basement tenant so both tenants could share the bathroom and the exterior sink.  Also in the back is a PATIO AREA with a REMOTE CONTROLLED METAL ROLL-UP DOOR that leads to LINDLEY ALLEY.  THE BASEMENT: Trippy basement with single stair access from the back of the building.  It features HIGH CEILINGS (an estimated 11 feet), cement flooring, white walls, and a few rooms.  Pics speak for themselves!  There’s a couple of trippy areas in the basement as well that could possibly also be used for storage as well.  THE SPACE IS PRICED TO LEASE QUICK!  Lease it before someone else does! Huge potential for this property and it will be 100% occupied if it’s the last thing I do! High speed internet available for monthly fee.
