Surrounded by shiny new skyscrapers, Flower Street Lofts bills itself as a pioneer of South Park, the booming Downtown LA neighborhood anchored by the Staples Center and LA Live.

The building was erected in 1936 as a distribution center for the United Parcels Service. In 2003, before Downtown’s “revitalization” really took off, it was expanded and converted into 91 lofts.

This sunny unit measures a generous 1,258 square feet and features concrete floors, exposed ductwork, a contemporary kitchen with quartz counters and bar-style seating, and soaring ceilings.

There’s ample space for sleeping quarters, though there’s no built-in partition to separate it from the living areas. Per the listing, the “wall-less bedroom features [a] renovated ensuite master bathroom with a soaking tub” and a walk-in closet.

Other notable elements include a half bathroom, in-unit washer and dryer, and two designated parking spaces.

The asking price? $675,000. But here’s the catch: monthly HOA dues of $944. That covers, per the listing, the security gate entry, internet, and common spaces, which includes a first level atrium.

The updated kitchen features bar seating and stainless steel appliances.
The clever owner uses the space above the bathroom and closet as storage space.
The full bathroom holds a tub and separate shower.
The unit is on the third floor.
