What made you choose The Emerson?
Natalie & Jonathan F.:
We have lived in downtown Los Angeles off and on since 2005. Former New Yorkers, we loved the urban environment and how DTLA has developed culturally. The Emerson is located in what we affectionately call our West Coast Lincoln Center. We toured the building when it opened and admired the modern, elegant approach to downtown living. When we saw the 2 bedroom apartments, we fell in love with all the finishes and the amenities.
