Exclusive: Urbanize Tours the Broadway Trade Center

Last month, architecture firm Omgivning granted us a first look at the transformation underway at 801 S. Broadway, a historic building in Downtown Los Angeles which was most recently known as the Broadway Trade Center. The mid-rise structure, formerly a flagship May Company department store, is being converted by real estate firm Waterbridge Capital into a 1.1-million mixed-use complex in the model of New York’s Chelsea Market. When completed in 2018, the 108-year-old building will include 400,000 square feet of office space, a boutique hotel and pedestrian-oriented commercial space.
