The Garey Building is a 320 unit and 15,000 SF commercial mixed-use project in the Artist District of Los Angeles. For this project, Garey Street was vacated to create an exciting pedestrian promenade connecting 1st and 2nd Street. Along this promenade are retail stores, restaurants, water fountains, outdoor seating and art displays. The brownstone walk-up units at ground level draw inspiration from East Village in New York. In addition, elements of the adjacent warehouse and industrial architecture were incorporated into the building’s design. Six separate courtyards, with different types of activities for residents, have been provided on the podium along with two recreation centers along the promenade.
