New York-based office-leasing startup WeWork will open a second Culver City-area location this year, leasing two floors at One Culver, the former Sony Pictures Plaza located at 10000 W. Washington Blvd. in Culver City.
WeWork One Culver will accommodate approximately 1,100 of its members in mid-century modern décor, an open floor plan, glass and steel framing as well as communal working space and a kitchen, the company said in a statement.
Anthony Gatti of CBRE Group Inc. represented WeWork in the lease negotiations. WeWork plans to move in to the property by late summer, according to a company representative.
Irvine’s LBA Realty owns One Culver, an eight-story, 363,000-square-foot office building built in 1986 and located near Culver City’s downtown area. The developer renovated the property last year, hiring the Gensler architecture firm to add new entrances on Washington and Culver boulevards, among other amenities.
WeWork also currently leases space at 5792 W. Jefferson Blvd. in Los Angeles, located just across the border with Culver City, walking distance from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Expo Line La Cienega/Jefferson station.
In total, the company has 15 locations in Los Angeles County, including in Long Beach, Burbank, Century City and downtown Los Angeles.
