With Warner Music Group now settling in at its new Arts District home, construction is set to begin later this year for even more office space down the street.
Los Angeles-based developer Lowe intends to break ground in the fourth quarter of 2019 on a nine-story, 100,000-square-foot office building at 2130 E. Violet Avenue. The project, slated for a site that previously operated as a recycling facility, would also include 3,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space and parking for 275 vehicles.
Designed by Ware Malcomb, the building takes cues from the surrounding warehouses of the Arts District. Plans call for 25,000-square-foot floor plates, and a 3,000-square-foot rooftop deck featuring lounge seating and recreation space.
Completion of 2130 Violet is anticipated in mid-2021.
Marketing efforts for the project, led by Cushman & Wakefield, began this week.
In addition to Warner Music Group, which inhabits a converted Ford Factory, work is also underway for the new SoHo Warehouse at 1000 S. Santa Fe Avenue.
Lowe is one of a handful of developers bringing office space to the southern Arts District. New York-based Tishman Speyer has proposed an approximately 203,000-square-foot project on Bay Street, and Onni Group is seeking entitlements for a mixed-use complex featuring 187,000 square feet of offices across the street from Lowe's property.
Just last week, Lowe announced that HBO has leased 254,000 square feet of space at the Ivy Station development in Culver City, which will serve as the company's new West Coast headquarters.
