After a year-and-a-half of construction, the finish line is finally in sight for the Collective at Playa Vista, a 200,000-square-foot creative office campus from New York-based developer Tishman Speyer.
The $80 project, designed by local architect Joey Shimoda, consists of a series of two-story structures on approximately 6.3 acres of land at 12005 and 10215 West Bluff Creek Drive. Each building emanates industrial chic with steel columns and exposed ceilings up to 21 feet in height. The exterior of the campus will include multiple garden patios, complementing the adjacent Playa Vista Central Park.
The Collective made waves late in 2014, when news emerged that internet giant Yahoo would relocate its Southern California operations to approximately 130,000 square feet of office space within the campus. Other future tenants include the Annenberg Foundation, which recently leased a 30,000-square-foot building to use as an animal care center.
Strong leasing activity at the Collective - and throughout the Playa Vista submarket - has prompted Tishman Speyer to move ahead with long-dormant plans for a larger speculative development on a property to the west. The project, dubbed the Brickyard, will create slightly over 400,000 square feet of creative office space in a pair of low-rise buildings designed by architect Michael Maltzan.
