Last year, we heard about plans for a private co-working club in the increasingly exclusive Arts District. Now, city planning documents spotted by Urbanize LA reveal a glimpse of what the project might look like.
Rising from the former Challenge Cream & Butter Association building, the wHY Architecture-designed project would preserve the historic two-story industrial structure, while adding a five-story addition to the top.
Renderings show the upper levels of the mixed use project will have a sleek, glassy design somewhat in contrast to the simple brick facade of the 1920s CCBA building. The bottom floor of the older structure will be opened up to the street and will include cafe and restaurant space as well as retail options—all open to the public.
More than 70,000 square feet of space on the upper levels of the development would be devoted to the private club, which will feature offices, a dining area and lounge, a gym, swimming pool, screening room, event space, and numerous members-only terraces.
Developed by Est4te Four Capital, the project isn’t the only swanky club planned for the area. A much-hyped new Soho House location (dubbed Soho Warehouse) is set to open in 2018, after running into some mysterious delays.
