In October, Jamison Services, Inc. completed work on an adaptive reuse project which transformed an 89-year-old building in Koreatown into a market rate apartment complex.  Last week, Urbanize and photographer Michael Hayes took a look inside the 1920s structure, which is known as the Abbey.

The six-story building features a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments between 550 square feet to 1,069 square feet in size.  According to the Abbey's official website, rents range from $1,600 for a ground-level live-work unit to $3,250 per month for a rooftop penthouse.  In-unit features include stainless steel appliances, washer-dryer sets, dedicated parking and high ceilings.

The residential conversion also created community spaces, such as a fitness center and a rooftop deck with citrus trees and an outdoor lounge.

Jamison is also in the process of building apartments inside two nearby office buildings of a more recent vintage.
