Marmol Radziner Unveils Brand New Luxury Interiors For The Emerson In Downtown LA


Downtown Los Angeles has undergone a major makeover in recent years and another new addition to the area is making it one of the most covetable neighborhoods in town. Real estate industry leader Related California has just unveiled the interiors for The Emerson, the luxury apartment building joining the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Museum of Contemporary Art, and the forthcoming Broad Museum in LA’s international corridor.

Created by Marmol Radziner’s principal designer, Ron Radziner, the Emerson’s interiors embody a simple, elegant aesthetic that perfectly complements the 20-story building’s impressive architecture by acclaimed firm Arquitectonica. Cool, neutral tones are used throughout the 271 residences and common areas, and custom-designed pieces play up the Emerson’s Bunker Hill location, placing it smack dab in the middle of downtown LA’s arts and culture scene.

Radziner’s vision was to design spaces that served the sophisticated, modern downtown professionals populating the area. Outfitting the residences with hardwood floors, rich walnut casework, and clean white Caesarstone countertops, the designer created thoughtful, aspirational designs that capture the feel of the building, as well as the neighborhood. To round out the overall aesthetic, each residence also features handmade tile accents from Heath Ceramics, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and subtle grey marble countertops and tile work in the bathrooms.

Drawing inspiration from the surrounding cultural landscape, Radziner opted for textures and forms that give the amenity spaces a rich, inviting feel. Details like the bronze, sculptural room divider in the lobby, as well as a one-of-a-kind billiards table in the Penthouse lounge offer interesting accents to spaces that are ideal for entertaining or relaxing.

Residents will not only have the luxury of appreciating beautiful interiors; the Emerson’s Penthouse Terrace offers some of the city’s most breathtaking views. Those lucky enough to find themselves on this floor, 20 stories above Bunker Hill, will have the opportunity to take in the stunning panorama while hanging out in the lounge, dining area, or around the communal table and barbecue.

The Emerson’s onsite leasing center is at 225 S. Grand Ave. For more information, visit or call (213) 337-9900
