The $150-million project, located in the cities of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach, will consist of three components, including:

  • a 100,000-square-foot design center and office building with 609 basement parking stalls at 2901 Pacific Coast Highway in Hermosa Beach;
  • a 37,000-square-foot office building with 199 basement parking spaces at 305 Sepulveda Boulevard in Manhattan Beach; and
  • an expansion of an existing office building at 330 Sepulveda Boulevard which will add 20,000 square feet of floor area and basement parking for 127 vehicles.

DFH Architects - the firm behind the existing headquarters campus - is designing expansion, which will consist entirely of two- and three-story buildings due to height limits imposed by zoning in Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach.  Renderings depict contemporary low-rise structures clad in materials including glass and cement.
