Next Generation Office in L.A. Arts District

This 113,000-square-foot, nine-story, next generation office building, located in the heart of the downtown Los Angeles Arts District, takes its design inspiration from the industrial character of the neighborhood. The state-of-the art property offers many appealing features that are a priority for businesses, including balconies and terraces on every floor with plentiful space for open-air events and meetings, operable windows and balcony doorways allowing for increased outdoor air circulation, and an outdoor rooftop deck with skyline views. There are also health and wellness-focused elements such as touchless systems and upgraded HVAC with high-capacity air filtration and outside air ventilation.  The building also features open 14’-high floorplates, floor-to-ceiling glass, and efficient systems and solar panels allowing for reduced utility costs. The expansive spaces offer vast area views.

The four floors of office space at 2130 Violet St are set atop approximately 3,300 square feet of ground floor retail, and four levels of parking.  The property is 1.5 miles from the Metro Little Tokyo/Arts District Regional Connector station, currently under construction at 1st Street and Alameda, and alternative transit is encouraged by providing abundant bike storage space with lockers and showers with car, bike and scooter share services readily available in the neighborhood.

As part of Lowe’s 2130 Violet Street development, the company installed public infrastructure including sidewalks, tree grates and landscaping along its Violet Street frontage as well as a “green alley” with pervious pavement technologies.  A new traffic signal and crosswalks have been installed at the intersection of Violet Street and Santa Fe Avenue.  These efforts combine to create an appealing environment that is easily walkable to the abundant collection of retail, dining and entertainment options in the flourishing Arts District.
