Built in 1922, Union Lofts originally served as the company headquarters of the Union Bank of California. In its heyday the building boasted all the opulence and grandeur of the age. Skilled Italian craftsmen created the richly ornate hand-painted and carved ceilings, and no expense was spared on the marble used for the stairways and basement vault. Today, every effort has been made to preserve the historical elements of the building. Oak Malibu, with its dark stain and an air of old-fashioned glamour, fits well with the developer’s ambition to combine the vintage setting with modern living.
