New York City-Style Rooftop in the Heart of DTLA

You'd be hard pressed to find a more dramatic New York City-style rooftop in the heart of Downtown LA!! One side is lined with a three story brick facade. The side other faces an incredibly unique wall with remnants of old stucco and legible pieces of early 20th century advertising. The front of the building gives onto the historic Broadway Theater District with a striking view of the Arcade Building and the KRKO radio tower above it. Three classic skylights dot the 4,000 square foot area. In all, the rooftop offers a full 270 degree set that can sell NYC, Chicago or a graphic novel type stylized city, back from the 1900s to today. It's also a great look for photoshoots. Available 24/7! Loud noises totally ok. Thanks to its being set back off the street and shielded by three buildings this is actually a surprisingly quiet location (for downtown LA that is.) There are power outlets up and down one side and we *may* have the possibility of providing three phase power as well. The location has two bathrooms (no shower). There is NO ELEVATOR. It's a two floor walk up from an easily accessible loading door off of the back alley. Our first floor space is also available and can be used for makeup, wardrobe, dressing rooms and catering space if needed for an additional fee. It's currently listed as 'Tree Loft: DTLA Creative/Office Space.' Come check us out!! *** VIEW OUR OTHER LISTINGS FOR A PACKAGE DEAL!!! *** Creative Loft Office Space: Back Alley Entrance:

This rooftop location is great! It has a lot of space which offers a good amount of creative flexibility. The stairwell to get up there is minimal which makes loading gear pretty seamless. We brought a dolly up and it fit perfectly. The concrete is smooth as well so we didn't have to lay any track (although having track is always nice). The aesthetic can definitely serve as a New York rooftop. Because you're surrounded by tall buildings it's actually somewhat quiet for DTLA -- we didn't have any issues when we were running audio. It also has similar qualities to the rooftop in, "500 Days of Summer". No matter what the scene, this spot offers a more secluded charm than your traditional rooftops in DTLA. I would absolutely shoot here again!
