Arroyo Property of the Week - REAL Lofts in Pasadena

When people think of lofts, they generally think of transit-oriented projects or Downtown Los Angeles pied a terres.

But the Eastside of Pasadena has been home to a terrific real loft community since 1992 when an innovative entrepreneur (way before lofts were hot stuff) stumbled upon a sad, badly bruised cluster of warehouses that even the bank did not want to own.

With vision and cooperation from the City of Pasadena, the Studios at Walnut became the first project of 13 units allocated by the City for live/work lofts.

Today, the Studios sit at the juncture of the growing renaissance of East Pasadena. Just a couple blocks from the Gold Line Station and Colorado Boulevard, the Studios boast a terrific walkability score of 72 and amazing bicycle commuting mobility.

This enclave of artists and creative professionals allows both privacy and community in one of the true urban settings in Pasadena.

Designed as rental units (yes, that's right, you don't need to buy one to live here), the Studios are almost always fully leased.

So that's why the current availability of two units for rent present such a terrific opportunity for the artistically minded, especially with the new home of the Noises Within Theatre Company Complex just a few blocks away.
