The building at 537 South Broadway underwent a thorough remodeling in 2016-2017. The LA Downtown News wrote in 05/2016: "Work continues at 537 S. Broadway, the six-story Art Deco structure being renovated by Beverly Hills-based developer King's Arch. Interior construction is expected to wrap in the third quarter of this year, according to a company representative. King's Arch bought the structure for $7.35 million last year and announced plans to turn it into creative office space. The renovation includes a seismic retrofit, new electrical and plumbing systems, and restoration of the intricately decorated facade."
