Creative House purchased this property in 2014 in a 50/50 Joint Venture with Fabric Investments. The property had been used as the local office of the International Union of Operating Engineers for the previous 50 years and being that it occupied a prime corner in the heart of the thriving Little Italy neighborhood was completely underutilized. Together, CH and Fabric crafted a vision to adaptively reuse and transform the property and were ultimately able to get a perfect tenant for the neighborhood when they signed a lease with Lofty Coffee Co. based out of Encinitas to develop a 2,500 sf indoor/outdoor artisan coffee shop and bakery.

Project Status: Opening Fall/Winter 2016
