Long Beach Temple's New Life


A developer in California has transformed the former Long Beach Masonic lodge building at 835 Locust Avenue into condominiums, now known as Long Beach Temple Lofts.


The Los Angeles Times took a tour—have a look.


Historic preservation requirements meant that the largely windowless building remain, well, largely windowless. (One condo has no windows at all.) The entry hall and exterior remain much as they were when it was built in 1927.

  2. I recently toured the Temple Lofts in Long Beach and found them to be spectacular. Some units had walls of windows and amazing views. The lobby and facade were restored beautifully. Great building!
