The Kress Lofts, featured in the September 2009 issue of Long Beach Magazine, are located at 100 W. 5th Street (corner of Pine and 5th) in downtown Long Beach. The Kress Building was designed in the Italian Renaissance style in 1923 by Thomas Franklin Power. Architect Power also designed early buildings of Loyola Marymount University, Long Beach’s St. Bartholomew’s Church, Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood as well as dozens of historic churches and high schools throughout Los Angeles.
The Lofts are a conversion of this old department store and office building into loft condominiums with brick walls, exposed wooden rafters, massive concrete columns and steel I-beams. The exterior of the building has been carefully restored to its original architecture.
The city recognized the dramatic restoration by designating the building as a Historic Landmark.
Join owners of a variety of lofts in their living space to see and hear how they have creatively turned these open spaces into homes with style and the building into a fabulous place to live and share a sense of community.
After you have toured the lofts you are invited to visit the rooftop deck to enjoy music, food, wine and the view!
Tickets are $45 per person
