Studio One Eleven

The Exchange

Location: Bellflower, CA
Client: Howard CDM
Type: Mixed-Use
Studio One Eleven has transformed an abandoned department store into a new development – The Exchange– furthering the revitalization of downtown Bellflower.

The Exchange adapts the 1952 JC Penny store at 17434 Bellflower Boulevard into creative office, co-working and food-maker space.

The 41,000-square-foot Exchange houses the new headquarters for Howard CDM on the third floor, a co-working facility on the existing mezzanine and a brewery/restaurant to be announced soon at the ground level.

A new mezzanine was constructed at the front of the building to provide private dining with an outdoor patio visible from the street.

The public/private venture also includes street improvements, including traffic calming, to bring economic vitality to the neighborhood.
