Now serving as a mixed-use building, the revitalized Trust Building brings an art deco masterpiece back to life in downtown LA’s historic core. Developed by Rising Realty Partners, the 10-story building has been transformed by an estimated $40-million makeover, including modern earthquake safety standards and restored original features, such as gilded ceiling decorations that had been painted over in late 20th century renovations. The Trust Building has been retrofitted to appeal to modern creative while retaining its historic character and architectural details – offering newly enhanced retail spaces, a 4,000 square foot restaurant space, rooftop with city skyline views, as well as expansive creative offices. Collaborators include WeidnerCA, Gensler and the Architectural Resources Group.
