Three National Firms Sign Leases at Iconic LA High Rise

Coretrust Capital Partners, the owner of FourFortyFour South Flower, has announced that Dykema Gossett, Grant Thornton LLP and Esquire Depositions have signed new leases at the 48-story downtown tower in Los Angeles. The building has been recognized for its state-of-the-art health and wellness technologies, which Coretrust says was of paramount importance for the new tenants.

Dykema, a national law firm has leased the entire 22nd floor while Grant Thornton, an audit, tax and advisory company will occupy the entire 31st floor and Esquire Depositions has leased 3,600 square feet on the 21st floor. In addition, Coretrust is removing the curtain wall of the FourFortyFour tower to create 1,000-square-feet loggia terraces on the 22nd and 31st floors.

“We are seeing a flight to scientifically verified healthy office environments, a trend we think will accelerate as employees demand safe workplaces to go back to the office and employers increasingly seek carbon neutral buildings,” said Coretrust’s founder Thomas S. Ricci in a news release.
