EXPANDING PARKING AND TRANSIT OPPORTUNITIES AT CREATIVE OFFICES AT 10951 PICO WLA

We created a tech friendly office building at 10951 Pico Boulevard.  We put in higher ceilings, concrete floors, wood floors, exposed elements, and the foosball table.  However, the tech companies need to scale upward from 4 people  per 1000 square feet to 10 people per 1000 square feet.  So we had to get creative with just less than 3 per 1000 parking.

Step 1 was a re-striping of our parking lot from less than 3 per 1000 to more than 3 spaces per 1000 square feet.

Step 2 was cutting a deal with the nearby  Westside Pavilion Shopping Center to rent additional spaces for our tenants allowing us to offer more than 10 spaces per 1000 square feet parking.

Step 3 was to publicize the availability of free street parking 4 minutes away along the new Expo Line.

Step 4 and 5 was courtesy of CalTrans who just built a new first come first serve 250 space parking structure eleven walking minutes away and will open the Expo Line Station in 2015 so people do not even have to drive.
