DESCRIPTION

Built in 1906, The Alexandria has been a historic landmark in Los Angeles for over a century. Now, after undergoing major renovations, it offers charming, low income apartments to another generation.

The Alexandria was designed by John Parkinson, an architect well known for projects including Los Angeles City Hall, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, and Union Station. As with all Parkinson's architectural designs, The Alexandria was developed with a unique style. Its charm and lavish interior once attracted many people, making it a center of social activities. In fact, The Alexandria was frequently visited by Hollywood legends including Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart, Mae West, Rudolph Valentino, Clark Gable, and Greta Garbo, as well as U.S. Presidents, William Taft, Woodrow Wilson, and Theodore Roosevelt.
