Eastern Columbia Condominium

Los Angeles, CA


Pankow provided preconstruction and construction for the renovation of the landmark Eastern Columbia Building, converting the former department store into 147 loft condominium units including penthouses, ground-floor retail, rooftop pool deck and fitness studio. Clad in glossy turquoise terracotta with gold terracotta trim decorated with sunburst patterns, geometric shapes, zigzags, chevrons, and stylized animal and plant forms, the Eastern Columbia Building is Los Angeles’ last surviving example of ZigZag Moderne. The 13-story building is built of structural steel and reinforced concrete and capped with a four-sided clock tower.

Pankow also constructed its 249-car, two-level subterranean and three-level above-grade parking structure.
