Described in 1914 by the Los Angeles Times as a magnificent hostelry with a strikingly beautiful facade and metropolitan conveniences, El Dorado Lofts was buikt by and originally named for local capitalist and financier, N. W. Stowell. In every respect, this 12-story edifice grandly displays an amazing wealth of Southern California- acquired materials and detailing. Green glazed brick clads the exterior, while rich golden tones of Batchelder tiles adorn the interior walls and lobby columns.

Today, open and airy designs offer maximum versatitly with both loft-style and enclosed bedroom configurations, along with the special appeal of balconies or landings that call attention to a vast array of cityscape views. There are only six residences on each of the ten Loft Plan floors. Ranging in size from apptoximately 848 to 1,394 square feet, a full arrray of distinctive floor plans provides for a choice of one or two bedrooms and either on or two full bathrooms. Some plans also include expanded living areas with extra space for an office, den or an additional bedroom. From the authentic 1898 solid wood doors that introduce each home, to the fire escape-style, wrought iron landings and balconies that showcase many of the residences, special care has been taken to artfully blend the old with the new. State-of-the-art kitchens and space for stacked washers and dryers make life even easier.

El Dorado Lofts is located in the urban core of downtown LA's Ols Bank District, a renaissance of a vibrant neighborhood filled with an ever-growing array of restaurants, theaters, art galleries and shops. 416 S. Spring St., LA, CA 90013
