A joint venture between real estate investment, development and management firm Lowe and Related Fund Management (RFM) has started construction on a nine-storey office building in the US.

A joint venture between real estate investment, development and management firm Lowe and Related Fund Management (RFM) has started construction on a nine-storey office building in the US.

Architect Ware Malcomb created the design for the 113,000ft² building at 2,130 Violet Street in the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles.

Taking its cues from the area’s industrial warehouse character, the design of the building incorporates materials such as exposed concrete and steel detailing.

The Violet Street office building has been designed for the future of workplace wellness and features abundant outdoor and balcony spaces and large 27,000ft² floorplates.

It also features high ceilings, operable windows, and energy-efficient building and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

The top four floors of the building offer a contemporary and flexible office space, as well as substantial terraces that allow for increased air circulation and connected indoor / outdoor work and meeting spaces.

The building also features an approximately 3,000ft² rooftop deck that will be outfitted with lounge seating, tables and chairs.

Lowe executive vice-president Tom Wulf said: “Located in one of Los Angeles’ most distinctive markets, Violet Street will be a contemporary office building that also offers many features that have become even more desirable as companies transition their offices to meet new requirements.

“With large contiguous spaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, outdoor terraces, operable windows and rooftop deck, Violet Street’s combination of location and building features make it a compelling option in today’s office market.”

The 2,130 Violet Street development will also see the installation of public infrastructure including sidewalks, crosswalks, a traffic signal, tree grates, street lighting, and landscaping.

Swinerton has been selected as general contractor for the project, with completion expected in early 2022.
