The only low-rise office park in downtown Los Angeles was in need of a makeover. Comprised of five concrete buildings, the 270,000-square-foot campus formerly known as Figueroa Courtyard had been built in 1979. But by 2016, its occupancy rate had plummeted. That’s when new developers purchased and renovated the one-of-a-kind property into a destination for tech and creative tenants.
Rebranded “The Park DTLA,” the campus of existing concrete buildings now features more inviting outdoor spaces and renovated interiors. Even each building’s exterior got a boost with bright lines of color painted around the perimeter — one color per building. At night, those lines glow from afar thanks to illumination from strips of red, blue, green, yellow and orange Plexineon LED fixtures that transform what was once a bland concrete jungle.
