Puerta Del Sol
Puerta del Sol is a 165-unit mixed-use condominium /retail project located northeast of downtown Los Angeles in historic Lincoln Heights. The development is part of the ongoing revitalization of the neighborhood. Puerta del Sol is located on a 2.9-acre site, part of a master development adjacent to the new Avenue 26 / Cypress Park Gold Line station. The homes are designed around a large courtyard and have a mix of studios, lofts, and 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom family flats, most with balconies or patios. Live-work units line the frontage and have street access, creating a pedestrian environment.
If you’re looking for a more modern lifestyle, Lincoln Heights also has lofts that have been converted from historic buildings. Details matter here, cabinets, fixtures – each has been carefully selected to work together to create a welcoming and inspiring living environment. The building also features amazing unobstructed views of Downtown, Elysian Park and surrounding communities. It is an historic building with original architectural elements and two new modern penthouse floors. The ownership of lofts includes designated parking in gated and adjacent garage. The building is further diversified with ground floor retail.
The bottom level is made up of 2-story and 3-story lofts. The two top levels (5th and 6th stories) are composed of new metal construction in modernist style. The center of the building was cut out for the restoration to add light, air and openness to the building and loft units.
