Check out this wonderful  space located at 725 S. Los Angeles Street:

Approximately 2300 sq. ft. with 22 ft high ceilings.  The loft office area has refinished hardwood floors.
It was last used as a gallery but of course could be so many other things!  Restaurant? Lounge? Retail?

CLOSED, Germany’s answer to J. Crew, gets more open in the U.S.

From Style Section LA:

CLOSED , which is considered the J. Crew of Germany, is making a bigger presence in the U.S. and we are wide eyed with excitement. The brand started in the 70s designing military inspired pieces for men and women with denim innovation being their major claim to fame. In fact, the company went out on a jeans limb by making the first dungarees that weren’t your standard five-pocket style. And today chinos and denim are still core of the company’s collections, though the brand also makes great tops, sweet floral dresses, cardigans and more.
Basic bottoms come in different washes and fits for each season, including flare, straight skinny and cropped in dark, light, patchwork and beyond. And they’re available in a uniformly large variety for both sexes. For spring and summer, the brand has embraced color with chinos in bights and neons.
The women’s collection stunned us for Fall 2011. Relaxed cords, fitted blazers and denim tops will merchandise perfectly into any woman’s closet. Of course, the trusty favorite denim jumpsuit makes an appearance. If only all classics could be this cool.
In Los Angeles CLOSED is sold at American Rag and Fred Segal. But you can fine the brand at Barney’s and Intermix in other cities nationwide. Can’t find a store near you? CLOSED sells online and ships to the states, with prices being what you’ve come to expect from a premium denim brand — think approximately $180-$200 for pants,  $339 for a cashmere sweater dress and $149 for a white oxford button down. Score!
 See the line at Cooper in room 321.
