Loft living in Downtown Los Angeles can be quite fabulous. You have an unobstructed blank canvas on which to craft your new apartment, huge windows, and lots to do -- with great new restaurants and bars downtown. (Lazy Ox Canteen
Making it even better, renting Downtown can be a bargain with all the great lofts available like this one
at the Historic Gas Company Lofts. Not only do you get a great one-bedroom, one-bathroom loft for $1,695, but with a 14-month lease you get two months free rent and a Golds Gym membership
And that's not all that's included with this rental apartment ...
The median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in downtown L.A. is $1,750 making this apartment at $1,695 a good deal. It becomes a great deal when you figure in two rent-free months and a bunch of utilities are included (see below). Living Downtown means you're near Staples Center, Disney Hall
and the great Central Library
. More practically, you're near freeways leading to Dodger Stadium, Pasadena, Santa Monica and Hollywood within minutes.
The Historic Gas Company Lofts
have been renovated to keep some of the building's old features while creating an updated space for you to make your own. The unit features stainless-steel appliances, central air and heat, and parking. Plus, the building has controlled access, laundry facilities and an on-site concierge.
And you won't have to pay for gas, high-speed Internet and cable, water and trash -- those are part of the package. There are different layouts to chose from (some with higher rent), so you can find the design that best fits your style.
Many think that if you live Downtown you won't have access to such essentials as a grocery store, but there is a 24-hour Ralphs
nearby, so no worries.
For you pet people, the building does allow them with a deposit; however, they have a cap on the number of pets per unit. They also require an interview with the pet. Seriously.
