Klein Financial Group, a multi-state leader in urban development of combined high scale and affordable rental properties, is completing 1200 Los Angeles rental units with its construction, redesign and refurbishment of the 1600 Vine and Met Lofts properties in, respectively, the Hollywood and Vine and Staples/LA Live/Nokia/Convention Center area of downtown Los Angeles as well its new Wilshire Vermont high-rise complex augmenting elegant and affordable residency in the Koreatown neighborhood.

Everything old is new again. A Los Angeles City Council proclamation honored  the nation's leading urban living magazine, Dwell, and the Klein-Financial Group development company as "essential leaders of the restoration and enhancement of Los Angeles' urban centers as desirable residential communities." The honor was presented on Friday, June 14 by L.A. City Councilman Tom LaBonge to Dwell president Michela O'Connor Abrams and KFG CEO Bob Klein in ceremonies at the 1600 Vine building's garden terrace, backgrounded with rapturous vistas of both Hollywood and Los Angeles.

The proclamation honors Dwell for carrying the message that "the dynamic leadership and development evident in the entertainment-rich districts of downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood over the last several years has transformed these historical parts of the city into safer, more beautiful, and more desirable places to live." The magazine has also commended Klein Financial for "blazing the trail in the creation of world-class residential districts in close proximity to Los Angeles' best sports and entertainment venues, setting patterns of downtown luxury living that is culturally rich and easily accessible."

Oscar-nominated actor John Savage, a new 1600 Vine resident, emphasized that he welcomes the new trend "because we actors and other professionals who live four hour commutes from our work, as I do living in Ventura, need an in-town domicile of attractive elegance, high security, proximity and the amenities of great pool, fitness center, stylish conference rooms and filming facilities as well as virtual room service from many of Hollywood's greatest restaurants. It's a lifestyle New Yorkers know well and treasure."  

The event also previewed eight lofts created by award-winning ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) which Dwell has designated "the new looks in urban living."
