The rooftop penthouse will be exclusive to Johnny Was and offers private decks and dramatic views of downtown Los Angeles.

“The Historic Core and Arts District are seeing multiple fashion tenants circling for creative office space due to their adjacency to industrial submarkets,” said Brittany Winn, Director in a press release. “These tenants are electing to move their headquarters operations out of warehouse facilities and into something creative, taking employee wellness (i.e. amenities, outdoor workspace, walkability, refreshed and inviting new interiors) into consideration. Overall, employers are working to create an office environment that employees will want to return to.”

Winn continued, “712 South Olive checks many boxes these tenants seek, and additionally offers brand new inspiring space. And in this case, the tenant also has exclusive access to a great rooftop amenity.”

712 S Olive St is a low-rise office and a retail building located at the corner of Seventh and Olive. The building features high ceilings, large windows, and 18,000-sf floor plates, and subterranean basement parking.

The location is in the heart of Restaurant Row in Downtown Los Angeles, and has access to the I-10, I-101, and I-5 freeways. The property is at the epicenter of development activity occurring in downtown and is poised to benefit from the continued revitalization of the city center.

Cushman & Wakefield is a leading global real estate services firm. Cushman & Wakefield is among the largest real estate services firms with approximately 50,000 employees in over 400 offices and 60 countries.
