Our client, Philosophie, just signed a 10-year lease on a beautiful freestanding 7,760 sf creative office building in Santa Monica. The property is on 16th Street, right at the Expo Line stop that is set to open in Spring 2016. When the tenant improvements are finished, this space will undoubtedly be one of the best tech offices on the Westside. The expo line gives their employees the ability to bounce around all over the city of LA with ease.
When Founding Partner, Skot Carruth, was asked why he chose this building and The Paloma Group:
"Although we love Venice, we needed more space and more parking than anything we've come across in the area. We expanded our search to Culver City, Playa Vista, and Marina Del Rey. We kept our fingers crossed for Santa Monica since we see it as the primary tech hub on the Westside. When we came across this building in particular, we immediately put it at the top of our list. The size, layout, parking, and location were all near-perfect fits to our ideal. The space could accommodate the right balance of private and open areas that fit our unique work style. We're particularly excited about it being right on the new Expo line!
Working with Lance has been an absolute pleasure. It is great to work with someone who really knows what's going on on the Westside, but what really makes him special is his great attitude and friendly demeanor. There are a lot of assholes in this business, and Lance is a straight-shooter who cares about his clients."
