ROW DTLA, located at the border of the Arts District and Industrial District in Downtown Los Angeles, has announced that creative advertising studio WC+A has signed a lease for 12,000 square feet of office space at the complex.
The firm, which was founded in 2015, is moving from its current 5,000-square-foot office just south of Downtown Los Angeles, and will move into its new space at the ROW in September. It boasts clients including Netflix, NBC, and the Hallmark Channel.
“The decision to relocate WC+A to ROW DTLA was solidified with our understanding of the incredible creative community that has been curated here—we want to be a part of this community. With ROW DTLA’s development at the core of the evolution of L.A.’s Arts District, we look forward to how this change will foster our own growth," said Kevin Williams, WC+A's co-founder and CEO.
ROW DTLA, which is owned by Atlas Capital Group, is already home to offices for UBTECH, APL, Adidas, VF Corp, JBrand, Mitu, ARC, Good Films, Gimbal, Spaces, and MidFirst Bank. It also hosts 40 shops and restaurants, and the weekly outdoor market Smorgasburg.
