A prime example of smart urban development, the Fuller Lofts project is an adaptive reuse of a 1920s concrete industrial building in a depressed neighborhood of East Los Angeles. It consists of 102-unit for-sale affordable and market-rate housing project that includes a free standing two-story parking structure. The mixed-use, transit-oriented project adds two stories of penthouse lofts onto adaptive reuse of an existing 1920s four-story historic concrete industrial building. The courtyard was designed with an exterior stair and walkway system to build community through informal interaction. Units are entered directly off this open area, making it the central circulation point of the complex. Two rooftop gardens further enhance residents’ quality of life along with operable windows in every unit, many of which also have private balconies. The Fuller Lofts incorporate a wide array of environmental and energy efficient measures. Pugh + Scarpa project.
