A redevelopment project, The Merritt Building, is a historic commercial property located in the heart of the vibrant SoBro (South Broadway) District in downtown Los Angeles. Downtown is a transit-oriented and economically growing area that is quickly emerging as the cultural center of Los Angeles. Situated in the Historic Core, the neighborhood is ripe for redevelopment through the addition of the Los Angeles Streetcar, the revitalization of nearby Pershing Square, and the Bringing Back Broadway initiative aimed at reactivating Downtown’ s historic stretch of theaters and commercial space. The Merritt was built in 1915, totals nine stories with a total of 55,948 sqft.
