The team of HLW, GPI Companies and Del Amo Construction has completed West End, a $180 million adaptive reuse project of the former Westside Pavilion Macy’s in West Los Angeles. Located at the intersection of Pico Boulevard and Overland Avenue, the 240,000-square-foot creative office campus repurposes a shuttered retail asset into the evolving needs of today.
While maintaining the style and integrity of the existing structure, the team divided the building into two sections, adding open lobbies and generous balconies to connect the two halves, creating an indoor-outdoor connection. The building’s facade is retrofitted with floor to ceiling glass, furthering the connection to the property’s surroundings.
“West End is an ambitious and exciting project,” said GPI’s Lee Wagman in a news release. “The new building offers the very best features sought after by tenants in a beautiful, state-of-the-art office environment. We have enjoyed working with both HLW and Del Amo Construction on multiple projects, and we are thrilled to bring this new property to life.”
