The Aurea Vista Hotel was designed by G. Stanley Wilson, who also designed the facade of the Stalder building and was chief architect of the Mission Inn. The building opened on March 28, 1928 as a hotel and separate banquet room on the upper floor and a furniture store on the ground floor.
The building was used as an anti-aircraft intelligence headquarters during World War II. The Riverside Ballet Arts opened a dance school in the banquet room in 1970. The Ballet and the Old Riverside Foundation petitioned the City of Riverside to designate the Aurea Vista building as a local landmark and became City Historical Landmark No. 84.
In 2014, Shelby Worthington & Cindy Alden started Loft .84. Shelby and Cindy made several improvements and rennovations to the space in order to bring it back to life and to it's original purpose, weddings & events. The venue is now Loft.84, named after its Historical Landmark designation.
