Report: DTLA Office Market Continues Pandemic Rebound

Downtown LA Primed for Post-COVID Return-To-Work

A new report from the Downtown Center Business Improvement District (DCBID) indicates that the Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA) Office Market is ready for a post-pandemic resurgence. With 37 million square feet of traditional and creative office space, DTLA has an impressive collection of upgraded Class A towers, historic buildings and creative industrial conversions for every space requirement.

The report details the tens of millions of dollars that were spent to transform the office properties, adding health and wellness features, indoor/outdoor workspaces and on-site amenities that are highly desired by today’s employers and workers. Combined with DTLA’s renaissance in the last two decades, the region is ready to meet the moment.

“When you combine DTLA’s central location, wealth of infrastructure, transit accessibility and unmatched density of retailers, amenities and entertainment offerings, you have a destination where workers and companies alike want to be,” said DCBID President Suzanne Holley. “With DTLA’s economy gaining steam, this trend will only continue to accelerate.”
