Broadway Trade Center

The Broadway Trade Center building once served downtown Los Angeles as the former Hamburger’s Department Store. Designed by Alfred F. Rosenheim, the Beaux Arts building opened in 1908. In 1923, the building ownership changed over to David May and housed the May Company Department store. May Company attracted shoppers for many years. Currently known as the Broadway Trade Center, the building is listed as a City of Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #459. It is a contributing building to the Broadway Theater and Commercial Historic District, which is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

In 2014, Waterbridge Capital purchased the building and announced exciting plans for the 1.1 million square foot building. The proposed plans included retail spaces, restaurants, creative office space, food hall, hotel and restoring a public gathering area on the 110,000 square foot roof. This project was part of downtown Los Angeles’ revival and stands as California’s largest Historic Tax Credit project.
