PROJECT SUMMARY

Duncanson Lofts is a mixed-use project that includes the renovation of six vacant and dilapidated buildings into 25 condominiums and more than 9,000 square feet of street level commercial space for six businesses.  The building is named for Robert Scott Duncanson, an influential, 19th century, African-American painter responsible for many of the murals in the Taft Museum of Art. These carefully renovated homes combine historic artistry with modern amenities including gorgeous bay windows with dramatic city views, secure parking, secure entrances and elevator access to most units.

The following businesses currently operate within Duncanson Lofts: MiCA, Little Mahatma, Switch, Incredible Creations, Krueger’s Tavern, Bakersfield OTR, and 1215 Wine Bar. At this time, all the available commercial space has been leased.
