Clint Lukens Realty is pleased to present an exciting opportunity to lease creative office, restaurant and retail spaces at the historic Merrick Building. Located in the East Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California adjacent to Los Feliz and Silver Lake, The Merrick Building represents a 11,000+ square-foot creative use project situated along the highly trafficked corridor of Fountain Avenue. This distinctive Art Deco property, designed by notable architect C.J. Smale in 1930, is bordered by Normandie Avenue and Vermont Avenue to the west and east, and by Sunset Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard to the north and south, and it lies in close proximity to some LA‘s largest day-time employment hubs.
Positioned to become the landmark building in this emerging neighborhood, The Merrick is currently undergoing a complete renovation to restore the original Art Deco features and upgrade the building systems to accommodate the needs of today’s businesses and visitors. The streetscape along The Merrick will be enhanced by activating the building’s unique outdoor area of roughly 2,600 SF spanning the entire Fountain Avenue frontage through the design of an inviting outdoor space that encourages our tenants and their customers to gather, dine, drink, and relax. This outdoor space can become an extension to the community and to our tenants to use for cultural events and activities, such as art events, open air markets and pop-up shops.
The Merrick will host a complementary mix of creative office space, retail and dining experiences all intended to insure a uniquely authentic presence in the fabric of the community. By building on the history of the site, the architecture and the neighborhood, and by assembling and curating a collection of emerging local concepts, the project will create an experiential retail community and destination in a bespoke environment.
