LOS ANGELES – Within the overall transformation category of GlobeSt.com’s 2019 ADAPT awards, we chose to award The Trust Building in Los Angeles for the best integration of a buildings integrity. The project was honored at our awards ceremony earlier this week in Baltimore.
Originally constructed in 1928 by the Title Insurance and Trust Company for its headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles, The Trust Building was built by Parkinson and Parkinson architects and designed by John and Donald Parkinson, showcasing a distinct Art Deco design. Located at 433 S. Spring St., the building has long established itself as a historic, cultural monument on the National Register of Historic Places.
The 12-story building was purchased in 2016 by Rising Realty Partners and Lionstone Investments to conceptualize a 340,000-square-foot office space project. Initially planning to create a multifamily development, the owners decided to capitalize on the buildings distinct features for a creative office project.
