Hueston Hennigan Signs Long-Term Lease at PacMutual
In one of the larger lease transactions in downtown Los Angeles this year, law firm Hueston Hennigan LLP recently inked a 33,703-square-foot long-term lease expansion and extension at PacMutual. Ivanhoé Cambridge and Hines are the owner and asset manager, respectively, of the three-building, 460,000 square-foot downtown Los Angeles complex.
“Hueston Hennigan is widely recognized as one of the premier litigation firms in the country. We are very happy that they have chosen to expand and extend their occupancy at PacMutual, when considering all of their other options in the downtown marketplace,” said Jim Bonham, senior managing director for Hines.
Avison Young’s John Eichler and Tyler Stark represented the ownership in the transaction. Mike McKeever of JLL represented Hueston Hennigan in the transaction.
“My client had a number of attractive relocation alternatives in the marketplace. But in the end, Hueston Hennigan felt the PacMutual building profile allows for a unique creative law space build-out featuring elements from the original building construction, providing a different workplace experience than most downtown Los Angeles properties. The central location delivers a connection to the diverse downtown Los Angeles community and access to multiple amenities,” said McKeever.
PacMutual consists of three interconnected buildings: Sentry Building (1922), Clock Building (1908) and Carriage House (1927). It is a recognized local landmark that was designated as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument No. 398 in 1982.
