Construction is wrapping up on a low-rise office building in the Sawtelle district that will become the new home of the USC Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine.  

The five-story building, located a block west of Expo/Bundy Station at 12414 W. Exposition Boulevard, stands five stories in height and contains approximately 80,000 square feet of space.  

HLW International designed the building, which is clad in a combination of concrete, wood, and glass.  Its interior features 16-to-25-foot ceilings, with polished floors and operable windows opening onto 16,000 square feet our outdoor decks.  

The project is being developed by the Luzatto Company, which signed an agreement last year with USC for the Ellison Institute to occupy the building for a period of two-to-five years.  After that point, USC will have the option to purchase the property.  

The project is not the only large office development taking shape near Expo/Sepulveda Station.  A block north at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Bundy Drive, a former Cadillac dealership is making way for a mixed-use project featuring over 500 apartments and 200,000 square feet of office space.
