For a century, the Pomona Packing Plant was a cornerstone of Pomona's industrial age, housing everything from a fruit cannery to a box and pallet manufacturer. Today, the Pomona Packing Plant has a new mission: to house the artists and entrepreneurs of Pomona's creative economy.
Located in the Pomona Arts Colony, the Pomona Packing Plant was fully renovated by Arteco Partners in 2013 and subdivided into 22 industrial art lofts. The Packing Plant spans an impressive two square blocks, making it the largest arts complex in the Pomona Arts Colony.
Units inside the Packing Plant range from 1,400 to 7,565 square feet and are a beautiful showcase of historical, industrial architecture – featuring thirty-foot, vaulted, open-rafter wood ceilings, exposed brick walls, concrete floors, and salvaged fire doors and skylights.
Artists and entrepreneurs who call the Packing Plant home include furniture designers, fashion designers, graphic artists, painters, sculptors, make-up artists, Pomona’s first micro-brewery and a satellite of the Museum of Neon Art. The Pomona Packing Plant also participates in Pomona's monthly "Second Saturday Art Walk," so be sure to hop on the trolley and stop by for a visit!
