The Herald examiner building

Designed by Julia Morgan for William Randolph Hearst, The Herald Examiner Building is an architectural icon on Broadway. Preserving its historic nature, while paying homage to the luxe glamour of its design, The Georgetown Company is working with Gensler to transform the iconic Building into a distinctly modern workplace environment and unparalleled retail and restaurant opportunity.

Tenants of all sizes will love the irreplaceable finishes, soaring ceiling heights, operable leaded windows and sawtooth skylights in a true historic gem. Approximately 100,000 SF on five floors, the Building offers a unique opportunity to experience truly authentic creative office, making a statement to the community and the world.

In addition to creative office space, numerous retail configurations are possible with signage along Broadway, 11th and the newly created Paseo. Awning-lined outdoor bistro seating in the original grand arched window frames will take advantage of the newly-designed Broadway streetscape, perfect for a café or showroom.

Burgeoning Broadway

Centrally located in the South Park neighborhood of Downtown LA, The Herald Examiner Building benefits from its location in the burgeoning Broadway Theater District with walking proximity to myriad residential choices, amenities serving every income bracket, and ease of access via major freeways and public transportation. Since Acne Studios and Urban Outfitters opened on Broadway in December 2013, a whirlwind of new retailers have set up shop almost overnight near The Herald Examiner Building and the new Ace Hotel, including OAK NYC, BNKR, Tanner Goods, Aesop, A.P.C., and Gap, as well as a number of highly coveted restaurants like UMAMI Broadway, The Stocking Frame and LA Chapter.

The Downtown Streetcar, in its preliminary engineering phase, is expected to take tenants and visitors directly from its stop at the Building to the Metro station, Staples Center, Financial District, Historic Core and Bunker Hill with a park-once and travel-extensively solution.

At the confluence of the Historic Core, South Park, and the Fashion District, The Herald Examiner Building is a shining example of why GQ Magazine recently named Downtown LA “the coolest downtown in America.” With a 97% apartment occupancy rate, 5,000 new residential units are under construction downtown and another 13,000 proposed. The Proper Hotel and Hoxton Hotel will add to Broadway’s boutique appeal, the most dynamic thoroughfare in Downtown.

All eyes are on The Herald Examiner Building as the demand for authentic creative office and retail space, true to Broadway’s storied heritage, climbs to a fever pitch.

New DTLA Developments

Downtown Los Angeles is in the midst of a development renaissance. There is 2.8 million square feet of commercial development underway; in addition to over 10,000 residential units in the immediate area of The Herald Examiner Building. All locations are set to deliver before the end of 2018.

With new construction reshaping the Los Angeles skyline, The Herald Examiner Building is a jewel of historic preservation and careful adaptive reuse. It benefits from the exploding live-work population and exciting new neighborhood amenities, while maintaining the historic nature and landmark architecture that makes this office and retail opportunity truly unique.
