Los Angeles, CA Office Inventory Description

While the beginning of Los Angeles can be dated back to the Spanish conquest in 1542, the office market in the metro area is anything but dated. Over 65% of L.A. office space is Class A product, while Class B office property accounts for just over 33% of Los Angeles'; office inventory.

Some of the best known office submarkets of LA include the entertainment and film production centers of Century City and Hollywood, the multi-cultural areas of Chinatown and Koreatown, and the ritzy areas of Wilshire and Santa Monica.

It's hard to know where to begin, when counting the trophy office properties in metropolitan Los Angeles. The Wilshire Beverly Center and the 9595 Wilshire office buildings in Beverly Hills certainly belong on the list, as does the Clock Tower office property in Santa Monica and the Fox Plaza on the Century City office scene of Los Angeles.

As major investors begin to expect green certification for their office assets, the City of Los Angeles has demonstrated that it is ready to meet the expectations of the global investment community by requiring that all new buildings over 50,000 square feet meet LEED building standards.

The 2017 National Green Building Adoption Index looked at commercial office properties in 30 major U.S. markets and found that, including EPA Energy Star-labeled buildings, the percentage of green certification has increased from under 5% in 2005 to 38% as of mid-2017. The Los Angeles metropolitan area placed 13th in this prestigious annual survey.
