Artisan Realty Advisors, which owns the PCT office towers at Pacific Coast Highway and Grand Avenue, is seeking city approvals to redevelop a surface parking lot on the east side of the complex. The proposed project at 1950-1960 E.

Pending approvals by the City of El Segundo, construction of the new office complex is expected to occur over a roughly 17-and-a-half-month period.

The project joins a handful of large office developments now in the works on the blocks flanking Pacific Coast Highway, including the new Standard Works Campus and the 243,000-square-foot Catalyst complex.

Artisan, in addition to the El Segundo offices, is also behind plans for a high-rise apartment tower at 6350 Selma Avenue in Hollywood.
