WREN Is Honored to Be Recognized in The Downtown Breakfast Club Roses & Lemon Awards
You know what they say — when you’re proud of something, share it with the world. So, we’re revealing some exciting news. The Downtown Breakfast Club just named WREN as one of the best new apartment developments in Downtown Los Angeles!
The annual Roses and Lemon Awards Ceremony was held in April, and we at WREN were thrilled to learn that our DTLA apartments were recognized as a major contributor to the orderly growth of the downtown area.
What Is the Downtown Breakfast Club?
The DBC has operated for nearly 40 years and is made up of Los Angeles real estate professionals. Each year, the group recognizes achievements in real estate and social service projects. Simply put, it’s about giving Rose awards to the best in DTLA. Categories include the best new residential developments (low-rise, high-rise, and affordable), best development (retail, commercial, mixed-use, and creative space), best upscale restaurant, best hotels, best bar, and innovative new places.
This year, WREN was extremely ecstatic to receive a Rose for being the Best Low-Rise! We also want to give a shout out to some of our fellow award winners, many of which are less than a mile from us in Downtown Los Angeles:
- Best Upscale Restaurant – Italian restaurant Rossoblu
- Best Bar – LA’s first walk-up bar Prank Bar
- Best Hotel – Freehand Hotel
- Extraordinary New Place – Metro station at The BLOC
- Extraordinary New Place – USC Village
- Extraordinary New Place – Los Angeles State Historic Park
(Oh, and if you’re wondering what the Lemon is all about, that goes to what the Downtown Breakfast Club considers as an area for improvement. This year, the Lemon went to traffic gridlock.)
A Product of Our Blood, Sweat, and Tears
We’ll never ever take our DBC award for granted! The honor is a culmination of A LOT of hard work. WREN was born back in 2013 when Mack Urban purchased several parcels of land in the up-and-coming neighborhood of South Park. Angelenos anxiously awaited the construction of the two seven-story buildings with 362 luxury apartments. By the time the project was completed in 2017, the population of South Park had exploded and WREN became an essential addition to DTLA.
But, the energy spent on erecting our two signature buildings wasn’t the only thing that led us to a Downtown Breakfast Club Rose. We also spent an immense amount of time paying attention to what DTLA-ers were looking for in a modern apartment community. And, we avoided the extraneous fluff that often overwhelms and hinders a living experience. We made sure our community represented what an LA resident would really want and need. It’s actually all a part of a bedrock philosophy that we follow every day — Thoughtful Living.
Alright, so you now know about our road to becoming the new best low-rise development, but you may be unfamiliar with what really sets WREN apart. Our residents seamlessly transition between all aspects of their lives. Whether you’re working, playing, entertaining, or relaxing, WREN is a perfect complement.
Outside of an incredible location, WREN boasts contemporary apartment homes that make optimal use of color and space to cultivate a luxurious yet comfortable environment. Plus, residents have access to highly-desired amenities:
- Cutting-edge fitness center and yoga room
- On-site restaurant (First Draft Taproom and Kitchen)
- On-site green space/private park
- Dog runs and dog wash station
- Two indoor/outdoor rooftop decks
- Hobby room
- Bike storage
- Business center and executive conference room
- Resident club lounge with full kitchen, games, billiards, and shuffleboard
- Two gorgeous lobbies
- Pool and cabana
Not to mention, we also keep DTLA-ers connected to their neighborhood and City through our informative blog.
