The Back Story

Old Venice meets high style!

Professional design team and Westside developer with an eye for detail, collaborate to bring you luxury loft living on Venice's famous boardwalk. With upgrades and amenities rivaling some of So Cals slickest properties the Venice Beach Art Lofts (formally Fenmar apartments) promises to be the crown jewel of the west side's booming modern living movement.

But first, a little history...

The Fenmar apartments were built in 1920 proudly standing 4 stories above the then sparse Venice boardwalk and clear Pacific Ocean. It is currently 1 of only 7 remaining original structures found on this infamous stretch of pleasure and wonderment.

Tragedy struck on St. Patrick's day 2003, engulfed in flames it took nearly 100 firefighters to best the blaze that could be seen as far as culver city. All that remained was a smoldering hulk of brick and mortar. The flames origins have become somewhat of a local urban legend with theories shared in hushed tones throughout Venice's literary and artistic communities. When the smoke cleared and after over a year of careful planning the Fenmars renovation would begin and last nearly 3 years. A phoenix from the ashes the Fenmar would retain its original exterior façade carefully restored brick by brick, tile by tile...

Upon entering the steel and glass entry doors one immediately understands this classic gem has been given a modern heart and soul.

And we spared no expense.

The ground floor: They said it couldn't be done.

The designer's vision and owners instincts prevailed in what would become an 8 month struggle wading through oceans of LADBS red tape. Well worth the wait, the ground floor art lofts now feature 14' ceilings, full height privacy glass and stainless steel facades and a long list of unique architectural features. Careful attention was paid to the balance of light and space; area divider doors to bedroom, bath and closets throughout the building are up to 8'  frosted glass, bi-passing panels.

2nd and third floor units have 10-12 foot ceilings most with breathtaking ocean views through their double paned, u/v treated, premium windows.  South and east side units have exposed original brick walls whereas 3rd floor west and north units received a smooth trowel concrete finish. All units and common areas have Chinese white oak flooring.

To contribute to the new and open floor plans each unit has a European style open kitchen featuring custom built rift oak cabinetry, Caesar stone counters, Italian glass tile splashes, Hans Grohe faucets, Kohler stainless sinks, and premium stainless appliances.

Bathrooms are zen-modern with honed limestone floors, countertops, and bath surrounds. Italian glass mosaic tile wraps the shower walls and bath fixtures are from Kohler's Stillness collection. Rejuvenation takes place in the 21" plus deep architectural soak tubs.

Destined to be a local icon, the Venice Beach Art Lofts are the perfect balance between style and comfort. We are looking for a select few with discriminating tastes and the desire to live in peace and harmony. Call 310-452-1200 to reserve your private tour.
