Lofty aspirations

Kitchens at Dogtown Station can be built to owner specifications, such as the one in this model, even when the buyer is Iron Chef Michael Symon. (K.T. Rapp)

Iron Chef Michael Symon has a new place to cook: a two-story loft in the Dogtown Station mixed-use development in Venice.

The 1,850-square-foot town house he bought has floor-to-ceiling windows, a patio and a fireplace. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit was listed at $1.1 million. The sales price was not available.

Symon, 41, will be using the space as his Los Angeles residence while filming "The Next Iron Chef," on which he is a judge, and his new show, "Food Feuds." He is a Cleveland restaurateur and the author of "Michael Symon's Live to Cook: Recipes and Techniques to Rock Your Kitchen."

Dogtown Station is a gated development with 35 lofts. Symon's transaction was negotiated by Andy McMullen of SCO Advisors and owner Bob D'Elia of RAD Ventures.
