The Skinny: Ah, yes. The up and coming Artist District of far east Downtown LA. This live/work loft unit offers what every artist desires: "stainless steel appliances, stained and sealed concrete floors, central air/heat, ceasarstone countertops" and exposed vent/duct work for "that authentic loft feel." Get inspired by stainless steel and caesarstone!

The Skinny: The Grand Lofts are sold out according to the loft web site, so you may have to take this beauty if you want in. Described as "like a penthouse", the unit features hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and we're guessing granite countertops. High ceilings and decent views. Now for only six figures.
