Where Shopping is a Huge Draw
- Feb 26, 2015
Los Angeles—The retail portion of One Santa Fe, a mixed-use development in Downtown Los Angeles, has announced its tenants in anticipation of opening this spring. Known as The Yards at One Santa Fe, it’s a collection of 25 shops, restaurants and community art spaces, and follows in the heels of the opening of other parts of the property, including the residences.
The Yards is on the ground floor. Soon to open there are Café Gratitude; Manhattan Beach-based GROW Market; the skin and hair care apothecary Malin + Goetz; Van Leeuwen Ice Cream; ediBOL, which serves Asian-inspired bowls with patio dining; Wittmore, a menswear store; and Voyager Shop, a San Francisco lifestyle boutique.
Since opening its first phase last September, the 438-residence development has signed over 260 leases (including 88 designated affordable), with over 240 residences now occupied. Also, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority has begun moving into its 35,000 square feet of creative office space in a portion of the project’s ground floor, and One Santa Fe has begun unveiling a resident transportation program.
One Santa Fe’s standout design features is its sheer length—over one quarter of a mile, or 1,624 feet—which makes it the city’s longest building, and one of the longest residential structures in the world. It also features a bridge above a central opening, and gardens and plazas that wind through the branching forms of the project. One Santa Fe features studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units, with rents ranging from $1,580 to $4,530.
The property’s third-floor amenities deck includes the resident clubhouse, a fitness center with technogym cardio and weight-training equipment, a zero-edge pool, one of the development’s three salt-water whirlpools. The circular gym building contains an elliptical, yoga and spinning studio. Adjacent is One Santa Fe’s outdoor movie theater, gaming deck and additional fire pits, and the property also offers a business center and full concierge services.
