With completion approaching in 2020, the wrapping is off at a new El Segundo office complex that will include the North American headquarters of EVA Airways.


Alta Oficina, located just east of the Green Line's Mariposa Station at 2125 Campus Drive, consists of two five-story structures - containing 150,000 square feet of office space - wrapping a central parking structure.  EVA Airways - Taiwan's second largest airline - is expected to occupy approximately one third of the space, doubling the size of its current headquarters.  The remainder of the property is to be used as office condominiums for third-party firms.

KMD Architects designed the project, which has a contemporary design and numerous features common to office campus - including skybridges connecting to the internal parking garage and a series of courtyards and landscaped paseos.

The project site is located just south of a recently-finished AC Hotel by Marriott, and just west of the 15-acre Elevon office campus.

Farther east across Douglas Street, Hackman Capital Partners is now in the process of converting a former Northrop Grumman facility into a 550,000-square-foot office campus.

To the north toward Imperial Highway, Los Angeles Times owner Patrick Soon-Schiong is in the midst of improvements to the 1980s office building which the newspaper now calls home.
