Walking into the Lafayette is a great experience, because you truly feel as though you are stepping back in time. It has an art-deco style common area and an elevator with a door that looks like it is made from solid gold. There are 173 condos to choose from here, although at any one point in time you will only find a couple of options to look at.
The Lafayette was constructed in 1928 with the original portion of the building being known as the Campbell Apartment Building and was built with a few different floor plans to choose from. You will find studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom units. The sizes will range from under 400 sq ft to over 1,000 sq ft. There are 11 floors to the building and if you are on the upper floors you will have dramatic city views. Facing south you will get a mild peek to the ocean and see a great skyline. Over the years many of the units have been upgraded, but you will find that many took history into account with their upgrades. They bring modern convenience but use materials that would have been used during that era.
The Lafayette is a popular building in downtown. Some of the highlights of this historic building:
- Condos of all sizes
- Just blocks from Ocean Blvd
- Fitness room, billiard room, and Solarium with one of the best views in Long Beach
- Short distance to restaurants and shopping
Like most historic buildings the building has laundry facilities on site and parking is nearby in lots that you can rent on a monthly basis.
