Pacific Electric Lofts

pacific-electric-lofts-historicBuilt in 1905 as home of the famed Los Angeles "Red Car" trolley system and once owned by the Southern Pacific Railroad, this 500,000-square-foot office building is part of the Historic Core Business Improvement District and has been converted into 314 luxury loft apartments on a budget in excess of $60 million.  Bank of America is ICO’s historic tax credit equity partner on this Los Angeles landmark. Pacific Electric Lofts commenced occupancy in August 2005 and is currently 98% leased and occupied at rents substantially above pro forma. The building’s redevelopment has received numerous awards including Downtown News’ 2006 Project of the Year and the Los Angeles Conservancy’s 2006 Preservation Award. In addition, the project has been featured on HGTV, and is the recipient of the largest grant bestowed by the television channel’s Restore America program.
