The Eckardt Building is one of three buildings that makeup Santee Village.
Built for business tycoon Michael J. Cornell in 1913, and designed by architects Hugo Eckhardt + G.W. Harding, it was part of LA's first garment and textile manufacturing construction boom that lasted through the 1930's.
All buildings in Santee village consist of heavy concrete-frame construction and ornamental exteriors characteristic of early 20th century industrial era.
The Eckardt's facade features paired windows facing westward into the street.
The Eckardt was granted Historic landmark status in 2001 and is Mills Act approved.
Open space and livability of each unit has been the focus of the developers. Each residence has been raised to modern standards through careful selection of minimalist designs of fixtures and appliances.
