Located in the historic Broadway Corridor, 801 South Broadway is poised to become one of Southern California's most iconic mixed-use, lifestyle developments. The property offers a once-in-a-generation opportunity to secure a location in a groundbreaking new redevelopment which will set the stage for commercial development in DTLA. Built in 1908 for Hamburger Department Store, 801 South Broadway was the largest department store west of Chicago at the time. In 1923, May Department Stores acquired Hamburger's and renamed the building the May Company Building. 801 South Broadway is a 1.1 million-SF redevelopment spanning ten floors, including 518,000 SF of newly created creative office space, a 150-room hotel and the retail, restaurant and food space. The building boasts game-changing amenities that will include two Olympic sized roof top pools, community services, child and pet care, a fitness center, a community park, a garden and urban spa, as well as a Hammam spa. 801 South Broadway is in the heart of the Broadway Theatre District, which stretches for six blocks from 3rd to 9th Streets. Stunning Beaux Arts, Art Deco and revival-style buildings bestow the district with a historic integrity that is uncommon in major metropolitan markets. Today, the nearby Rialto Theatre is now home to retailer Urban Outfitters and The Orpheum Theatre and The Theatre at Ace Hotel continue to play host to live musical performances and movie premieres.
