After an extensive review of employee demographics, competitors, business partners and real estate submarkets, Warner Music Group chose a historic building in the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles. The building was the first Ford Motor Company factory on the West Coast and was substantially unchanged from its original 1914 form. A developer is in the process of transforming it into a first-class creative office space while retaining its vintage character. Warner Music Group’s move marks the largest office relocation to Downtown Los Angeles in 30 years, and they will be the largest creative company in Downtown Los Angeles. Within the first year of the deal closing, several other entertainment firms signed leases in Downtown Los Angeles and the Arts District in what is now a growing trend.
