Doma Properties is proud to call The Walker Building home to our downtown office. Featuring 20’ board finished concrete columns with octagonal capitals, the office reflects the interior supports throughout the lofts within the building.

Built in 1929, the structure would become known as The Walker Building after the retail department store it would house for 50 years. When Walker’s Department Store closed, the building went through various owners before Borg Development and Capital Foresight bought it and restored it to its former glory. The architects at Interstices designed the interior lofts. The development team carefully re-created the lost or damaged art stone and original crenulation along the edge of the roof in concrete (there is no fiberglass or foam on this building!). Contemporary penthouses were added to the rooftop and are consistent with national historic guidelines.

The Walker Building’s interior was remodeled to include 39 Manhattan-style loft condominiums topped with seven modern penthouses. Large glass windows flank all seven penthouses and select units include catwalks that extend out from the second story, providing homeowners with spectacular views of Long Beach. Every unit features polished concrete floors and an open living space that allows for multiple interior layouts. These lofts are ideal for homeowners who want something different from the traditional floor plan and seek a contemporary interior in a beautiful historic building.
