The Pettebone Building

The renovation of the Pettebone Building has reinvigorated the spirit of L.A.’s Broadway Theater District. By exposing brick, and adding modern office amenities, the restoration gives a nod to the building’s vibrant past while being a source of inspiration to the future. The Pettebone Building was constructed in 1905 by a team consisting of early Los Angeles developer O.T. Johnson and architect Robert B. Young. structure was eventually leased by its namesake Pettebone Company, which used the building as a manufaturing and design facility for the first street lamps along Broadway and in Downtown Los Angeles.
