Once a newsroom, printing press and distribution facility for the LA Times, the Press has been reimagined as a creative work campus and food hall. The reinvention of this building celebrates the history and character of the industrial space. Defining elements of the original structure such as the canopies and monolithic concrete walls, the steel frames and the machine rooms, are retained, further reinforcing the idea of a historic ruin, reborn.
The Press is perfectly positioned in the seat of Costa Mesa’s emerging creative hub, surrounded by a host of companies that make up the O.C.’s newly energized business corridor.
The project offers easy access to John Wayne Airport – less than five miles away – while the prime residential markets of Newport Beach and Irvine are a mere ten-minute commute.
