Class A:

Modern glass and steel towers have long been desired for their high-quality spaces and amenities, large floorplates, and prestige locations. Now they are being reinvented for a new era of city living, with major investments in infrastructure, amenities, programming, and design, to meet the demands of a new generation of tenants.

Hacking the Highrise

With over $7 billion invested in Class A Office Towers since 2013, new owners are maximizing the value and appeal of their buildings by reimagining them from the inside out and reconnecting them to a revitalized DTLA. From lobbies and plazas redesigned as communal gathering spaces, to radical office renovations and amenities to enrich the employee experience, DTLA’s office towers are an active testing ground for the workplace of tomorrow in the Downtown of today.

Historic:

Classic buildings from the early 20th century updated for today’s creative firms in architecture, design, fashion and technology. From Historic Broadway to the Financial, Fashion and Jewelry Districts, dozens of these architectural gems have been reactivated as modern workplaces for innovative companies, loft-style residences for creative individuals, and boutique hotels for trendsetting travelers, and are now among the most prized properties in DTLA.

Building History

The PacMutual Building, built in 1908, served as headquarters for the Pacific Mutual Life Insurance Company until 1973 when, like many of its peers, its namesake firm moved to a suburban office park and the property languished. Forty years later, Rising Realty made strategic investments to upgrade and reposition the property as a creative campus, attracting a new wave of tenants from creative industries. Current owners Ivanhoe Cambridge are continuing the transformation, adding new amenities like a fitness center and bike spa.

Industrial:

Traditional warehouse and manufacturing properties retrofitted and repositioned as flexible open space for innovative companies. From the ultra-hip Arts District to the emerging Industrial and Fashion Districts, DTLA’s 25 million SF of industrial space is suddenly a very hot commodity. These locations have become even more desirable as the surrounding residential community, retail offerings, and restaurant scene have exploded with exciting new businesses and bold new projects.

Industrial Evolution

Built in 1914 to manufacture Ford Model T automobiles, the poured-concrete and block building at 7th and Santa Fe was the second Ford Motor plant west of the Mississippi. After Ford left the property in 1929 it went through various occupants and renovations, ending up with its windows boarded over, a shell of its former self, until 2014 when it was purchased by Shorenstein. Over the next few years, it was lovingly restored and modernized, and, in 2019, became the new home of Warner Music Group – a testament to the resurgent appeal of both industrial properties and the Downtown spirit.

Coworking:

The rise of Coworking has had a huge impact on small businesses and innovative companies that want the flexibility to adapt to changing business needs. Coworking spaces provide shorter lease terms, furnished offices, and services. Ideal for companies in start-up or rapid growth mode, there are dozens of options available to help establish your company within the dynamic and creative DTLA community.
