Today is Major League Baseball’s opening day, and one of the game’s most celebrated players is heading into the new season fresh off the sale of an enviable one-bedroom unit in the Arts District’s Biscuit Company Lofts building.
As the LA Times reports, Miami Marlin Ichiro Suzuki sold the condo for over $100,000 over its asking price of $2.349 million. What’s more, at an astonishing $1,207 per square foot, the sale was “record breaking” in the Arts District, according to Dominic Labriola of Mercer Vine, who represented Suzuki in the sale, along with Tara Hotchkis.
Measuring in at 2,030 square feet, the unit is quite roomy for a one-bedroom, featuring two-and-a-half bathrooms and a private rooftop patio. Features include brick walls, hardwood floors, skylights, and wide panels of steel case windows.
The building itself, built in the 1920s as a base of operations for the National Biscuit Company, was purchased by Linear City in 2006 for conversion into lofts. Since then, it’s been one of the neighborhood’s most popular (and highest-priced) buildings.
Amenities include a fitness center, swimming pool, outdoor common area, and a dog walk. The unit also includes two on-site parking spots. HOA dues are $590.73 per month.
