LA artists prepare to leave converted Fashion District warehouse that was subject of Ghost Ship crackdown – Los Angeles Times

When Redgi Woods, 30, moved into a spacious loft in a Fashion District warehouse in July, he could not believe his luck. The high ceiling and lighting appealed to him, and he used the space to host parties and meet with clients for his fashion design projects.

“I saw other people living here, I saw other artists,” he said, sitting at a table in his loft, now crowded with moving boxes.

“Photographers are great for me to have, models are great for me to have,” Woods said, “and when they’re all a door knock away it doesn’t get better, it doesn’t get easier, it doesn’t become more beautiful.”

But the dream of living and working in the same place is coming to a bumpy end for the tenants of 931 E. Pico Blvd., who have been ordered by Los Angeles officials to vacate the four-story warehouse by Thursday.
