Spectacular unit in Santee Village’s Textile Building

Once an airy workspace, this corner unit in Santee Village’s historic Textile Building offers original industrial features with breathtaking views.

Designed by architect William Douglas Lee, construction of the 12-story Gothic and Renaissance Revival loft was supervised by Florence Casler, a “female powerhouse who developed 1920s Downtown LA,” including “at least seven specialized industrial buildings in what is now known as LA’s Fashion District.”

The unit is located on the fifth floor and opens up to a hallway leading to an open space grounded by concrete floors and lined with original industrial windows, framing sweeping views. A modular single-line kitchen is fitted with a stainless steel countertop and open wire and wood shelving, displaying a small collection of Hasami Porcelain. Large columns on either side of the space visually separate the kitchen dining area from the bedroom and lounge space.

Santee Village comprises several buildings that share many amenities, including one deeded parking space, a rooftop pool, gym, multiple barbecue areas, basketball court, driving range, and is near the Flower Market and world-famous Sonoratown Tacos.

Located at the corner of Maple and 8th, 315 East Eighth Street is eligible for Mills Act tax breaks (which means you see significant property tax discounts as the new owner.) The property is listed with the L34 Group of Keller Williams. Asking price is $635,000 with HOA dues of $545 per month.
