COTY HEADQUARTERS

Location: 4500 Park Granada, Calabasas

Developer: Rising Realty Partners

Contractor: Sierra Pacific Constructors

Architect: Alexis Dennis Design | Moshiri Associates

Subcontractors: Haworth | DFS Flooring | G & S Acoustics, Inc.

Paris based international beauty company, Coty, consolidated its existing facilities in North Hollywood and Woodland Hills into the newly redeveloped Park Calabasas. The 20-acre campus features lush landscaping, expansive views, walking trails, a fitness center, cafe, extensive outdoor spaces for individual working, group meetings or corporate events, and close proximity to amenities including The Commons at Calabasas. While the building, designed by the famed William L. Pereira & Associates, and constructed in 1985, was an architectural gem, it was originally built for a single corporate tenant and many changes were required to not only upgrade the building for multi-tenant use, but also to accommodate the diverse programmatic requirements for Coty including: corporate offices, research and development laboratory, professional hair and nail training facilities, multipurpose event spaces, a photo/video studio and retail areas. The building owner and developer, Rising Realty Partners, worked with its architect to modernize the building lobbies, courtyard, outdoor spaces and restrooms.
