The Bradbury Building, Los Angeles' oldest historical landmark structure, is undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation and restoration.
According to new owner Sydney Irmas, who purchased the 96-year-old office/retail structure from Western Management last April, the rehab project will be completed by next summer. The project architect is Brenda Levin of Levin & Associates.
The Bradbury Building, located at 3rd Street and Broadway, consists of 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and arcade space and another 60,000 square feet of office use. Its interior features include open-caged elevators, a glass-canopied court, detailed ironwork stair rails and flights of open stairways.
Following completion, Irmas plans to dedicate and market the building as the architectural headquarters of Los Angeles. Managing the property, as well as overseeing the construction will be Cushman & Wakefield of California's Management Services Group.
