2024 Commercial Real Estate Awards: Office


Developer: The Luzzatto Company
GC: KPRS Construction Services, Inc.
Architect: HLW International

The Depot is a new three-story creative office constructed in the historic Jefferson Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. The building provides 77,000 square feet of office space and is conveniently situated over a parking garage podium with two subterranean parking levels. Built using the ConXtech system, the structural steel is visible to the interior, providing an artful centerpiece nostalgic to a former factory.

The 149,000 square foot site includes several common areas and multiple landscaped exterior patios offering extensive views. The project was designed with sustainable materials and open, flexible space for the future tenant. Ideally located between Culver City and Downtown LA, the site formerly operated as the dairy truck servicing depot for Unified Grocers.

As neighboring Culver City is now home to several streaming giants, appeal for the unique and vibrant West Adams neighborhood has also grown, attracting numerous tech, media and entertainment companies. In addition to being identified as an opportunity zone for economic growth, construction of The Depot furthers this trend and brings an added advantage for the next industry leader to occupy its floors.

After spending two decades in Culver City, HOK’s Los Angeles studio has found a new home in ROW DTLA, a vibrant hub in the city’s Arts District. This transition into downtown’s creative heart has infused HOK’s work with fresh energy and inspiration.

Central to HOK’s philosophy is the design of inclusive, neurodiverse work environments where everyone can thrive. In the new office, HOK designed floating workspaces – flexible areas that are not assigned but chosen – catering to a diverse spectrum of sensory needs. These spaces range from serene spaces to sensory-rich zones, supporting a hybrid work model. Amenities include a wellness room, a virtual reality center and a rotating art collection showcasing local talent.

Over two decades in the making, the recently completed 180,000 square foot, 17 floor and 235 foot tall (W)rapper building is the only commercially available, base-isolated, office high- rise building in the country and given its state-of- the-art structural engineering, is one of the safest and most resilient office buildings in the world.

(W)rapper’s structural system uniquely features an exoskeleton of arching steel bands exterior to the building’s glass envelope creating open, column-free interiors with unobstructed views of the city. Unlike conventional high-rise structural systems based on columns organized along modular grid lines, (W)rapper is supported by a network of curvilinear bands originating from several geometric center points.
