Singer Sewing Building

The Singer Building - also known as The Singer Sewing Building - is a historic, 8-story, Beaux Arts structure on Broadway. It was renovated and reopened in 2021 as live/work lofts on the seven upper floors with ground-floor retail. All units feature operable floor-to-ceiling folding windows that open onto new patios. Its penthouse unit features a double-height sloped ceiling retained from the original auditorium.

The original edifice was designed and built in 1922 by Meyer and Holler's Milwaukee Bradley Building Company, best known as the designers of Grauman's Chinese Theatre. It was long occupied by the Southern California Music Company, which used the building as sales space and hosted concerts in an auditorium located on the building's top floor.

Architecture firm Omgivning restored the building's front facade to its original date - with some modern touches - in accordance with the Broadway Design Guidelines. There is also a rooftop amenity space to the property.

The Singer Building's ground-floor is occupied with apparel retailer Vans, who established a flagship store within the space in 2020. The property sits next-door to the historic Tower Theatre - occupied by the Apple store - and the Rialto Theatre - home to an Urban Outfitters.
