Los Angeles, CA
Featured Building: Textile Building Lofts
In the 1920s, Florence C. Casler, a pioneering woman real estate developer and contractor, developed the Textile Center Building as a center for garment manufacturing. She hired architect William Douglas Lee to design the Gothic Revival style building. The building was completed in 1926 and the grand opening included a fashion show featuring clothing made in Los Angeles. The building housed Florence Casler's office through the height of her career. Within one year of being built, Textile Center was at capacity with 56 tenants, all in the wholesale garment industry. The building was sold in 1945.
In 2005, the building was converted into loft-style condominiums by Forest City Residential West Group. Renovations of the building's interior began in January 2005 to make way for 64 condominiums and 5,000 square feet of retail space. Textile Building Lofts is now part of the Santee Village Loft Complex.
The Textile Center Building has been recognized as a historic building at both the local and national levels. In April 2002, it was designated a Historic Cultural Monument (No. 712) by the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission and in 2005 it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
