Conceived as the west coast headquarters of The National Biscuit Company, this landmark structure was designed by E.J. Eckle, the Dean of American architects and founder of the distinguished firm of Eckle and Aldrich. Constructed in 1925 at the then astounding cost of $2,000,000 -this celebrated 7-story sky scraper factory became an architectural sensation.
In 2007, Linear City LLC completed an award-winning renovation of the former Nabisco Bakery into 104 authentic live/work lofts and put one of the city’s finest French restaurants at the lower level. It is Los Angeles Historical-Cultural Monument #888. (Which also allows for vastly reduced property taxes under the Mills Act.) The Biscuit Lofts have become the hottest selling lofts in Downtown LA, with a recent highest price loft sale ever at $2,600,000.
