CBRE announced the lease to California and Shanghai-based architecture firm Steinberg Hart Architects in downtown Los Angeles.

CBRE’s Chris Caras, Phillip Sample, Brad Chelf, Brandon Bank and Taylor Watson represented the landlord, Downtown Properties, an associate of Gaw Capital. The tenant, a wellestablished architecture, urban planning, and interior design firm, was represented by John Eichler of Cushman and Wakefield.

The property, 818 W. 7 th Street, is a BOMA Building of the Year award winner, and is located across the street from the new Wilshire Grand. The 12-story structure, which was constructed in 1924 and renovated in 2016 and 2018, features several of the original historic elements, exposed brick with concrete floors, ceilings, and columns. Earlier this month, the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) signed a new 25,000 square-foot lease at the property.

“This is yet another deal that speaks to the evolution of Downtown LA,” said Caras. “Its walkability and amenity-rich environment continue to attract a variety of tenants.”

Added Eric Bender, executive vice president of asset management at Downtown Properties, "We are excited to welcome Steinberg Hart to our growing roster of high profile companies, joining LAFC, Gaw Capital, many others. Our recent lobby renovations, addition of a creative tenant lounge and game area, and under construction bicycle locker and storage room -- including shower facility -- demonstrate the building's state-of-the-art features and amenities."

 Downtown Los Angeles and surrounding neighborhoods have seen a flurry of new projects and redevelopment of existing buildings across all neighborhoods, including the historic core, the financial district and South Park. Since 1999, Downtown has received more than $7.3 billion in residential, $1.2 billion in arts & entertainment, and $2.6 billion in civic and institutional investments.
