Kress_5_10_2014 (8 of 13)Located in the heart of downtown Long Beach, on the corner of 5th and Pine, the iconic Kress Building is luxury at its best. Convenience is only steps away with restaurants, grocery stores, coffee shops, retail stores, the Metro Blue Line, LB Performing Arts/Convention Center, and more practically at your doorstep. This historic landmark is also only a few blocks from the beach. Whether you need to shop, want to dine out at a gourmet restaurant, or grab a few drinks, you can easily do it from your next home at Kress Long Beach Lofts.

These immaculate Long Beach lofts were established in 1925, and were a 3 story department store with offices above.  The building was scheduled for demolition in 1980 when an innovative development team spent the next 13 years retrofitting the complex into residential lofts. The lofts are the definition of sophistication. You’ll enjoy 14 foot ceilings and a wall of windows giving you an amazing view of the city. You will also have access to a lavish rooftop deck (common area) that is nicely furnished and boasts a beautiful, panoramic view of the city and harbor along with a gourmet gas barbeque grill to entertain your guests outdoors or watch the sun set with your favorite bottle of wine.

The walls are unfinished, creating a New York style urban setting, and you will indulge in a mixture of natural light and beautiful light fixtures while enjoying a lavish living space (spaces in loft, layout, and design vary by unit, contact us for available units and details of each unit; square feet varies from 920 to 2,120). There are also two extravagant penthouses on the 9th floor. You have access to secured underground parking and the ability to rent additional space across the street if needed.

Once you see these Long Beach lofts, you will be anxious to call one home. Contact the Long Beach Realty team of the Hayward Team to schedule a viewing but don’t wait, these lofts don’t stay on the market for long.
