After two years of construction, Los Angeles-based developer Lowe and Related Fund Management have completed work on their new Arts District office complex in Downtown Los Angeles.

The nine-story building, located at 2130 E. Violet Street, consists of a nine-story building which features 113,000 square feet of offices above four levels of parking and approximately 3,300 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Designed by Ware Malcomb, the approximately 108-foot-tall building features 27,000-square-foot floor plates and 14-foot ceilings that open onto balconies and terraces. Additionally, the building features an amenity deck at its rooftop. The exterior, composed of concrete with steel screens along above-grade parking, is intended to match the industrial setting of the Arts District.

In addition, the project brought off-site improvements to the surrounding stretch of Violet Street, including new sidewalks, crosswalks, lighting, landscaping, a traffic signal along Violet Street, and a new "green alley."

“2130 Violet Street delivers in demand building features, such as expansive outdoor spaces and indoor/outdoor connectivity, coupled with the latest in sustainability and health and wellness technologies, in a dynamic neighborhood – attributes that are highly desired by businesses today when making location decisions,” said Lowe Executive Vice President Tom Wulf in a news release.

The project joins an Arts District that has seen its profile rise in part due to the arrival of recognizable employers such as Warner Music Group and Spotify, but also comes to the market at a time of uncertainty for the office market as a result of the global pandemic. Still, other developers have made bets on large office projects at nearby sites, including Onni Group, Jade Enterprises, Skanska, Tishman Speyer, and Hines.

The project is being leased by Mike Condon Jr, Pete Collins, Brittany Winn, McKenna Gaskill, and Scott Menkus of Cushman & Wakefield. More information is available at
