LOS ANGELES — An unnamed buyer has acquired The Merritt Building, a 55,948-square-foot office building in downtown Los Angeles, for $24 million. The historic site is located at 761 S. Broadway, also known as 301 W. 8th St. in the SoBro (South Broadway) district.
The building was originally designed by the Reid Brothers in 1915 as a rendition of Minerva’s Temple. The Home Savings & Loan Association bought the building in 1957.
Today, the property is a nine-story commercial building with a basement level and ground-floor retail.
Mike Condon Jr. and Kelli Snyder of Cushman & Wakefield represented the seller, LIZ, in this transaction.
