The Collection Building in Downtown LA Announces the Opening of Their 9th Floor Flexible, Shared Workspaces and Event Location, Featuring Exclusive Monthly Private Offices

LOS ANGELES, May 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — The Collection (, a 13-story creative office building in the Financial District of downtown Los Angeles, located in the heart of Restaurant Row at the corner of W. 7th St. & Grand Ave, announces the opening of its flexible workspace and event location on the 9th floor. The building was originally built in 1913 and has been beautifully renovated over the last five years, becoming one of the most desirable buildings in downtown LA. The 9th floor private offices and shared workspaces are expected to generate comparable demand.

“Co-working and enterprise mobility are redefining the way we work,” says Chris Ortman, co-founder and building manager of The Collection. “With the rapid growth of these mobile, 21st-century workforces, we decided a flex space was the perfect addition to The Collection. The space was custom-designed to accommodate the dynamic needs of entrepreneurs, freelancers and established enterprises. Existing tenants looking to grow their staff or host networking events can also leverage the new space.”

Private offices and meeting rooms on the 9th floor are available to rent on daily or monthly terms. Each office is indeed private, with opaque and sturdy dividing walls. Ninth-floor members with a private office will have their company’s name and dedicated suite number on their private office’s glass door, and will be featured in the ground floor lobby directory, making them indistinguishable from The Collection’s full-time tenants. For startups especially, this perk lends an air of stability that’s invaluable in the early days of a new venture. Underneath The Collection’s bold, elegant interior design is cutting-edge technology, including a direct fiber connection to the Internet backbone supplying speeds of 10-plus Gbps.

The new space is both functionally and formally integrated with the rest of the building. Centrally located on the 9th floor is a lounge and café/bar area open to all tenants and members who need a relaxing moment away, or a casual meeting with a colleague. Free specialty brewed coffee (espresso, cappuccino, latté, etc.), cold brew coffee and tea are always on tap. “With only 12 exclusive private offices, we focus on ‘hospitality,'” adds Ortman, “and provide high-end amenities that are above and beyond those of our competitors, including access to the building’s private roof-top lounge and outdoor deck.”

Current tenants of The Collection represent leaders and innovators from a wide range of creative, dynamic industries, including interior design, architecture, digital art and graphic design, film and fashion, and real estate. As such, the 9th floor flexible workspace has been engineered with collaboration in mind. Already, tenants have staged successful events and parties that demonstrate the synergistic power of people working together in great spaces.

Downtown Los Angeles is undergoing a renaissance, with new businesses springing up regularly. The Collection is ideally situated at the epicenter of this action — and the 9th floor flexible workspace takes the building to the next level.

Office Space


Startups are usually small businesses that are initially created and run by a small team of people with an idea to satisfy a specific need within the market. Startups usually have limited resources and due to this, they prefer having office space that is more economical. Although other workspace options such as working from home or in a coffee shop might work well for freelancers or the occasional “work from home” day, but for startups, these environments are not the best option.

An ideal workspace for startups is conducive to imagination, creativity, growth, and space to interact with one another as they hustle and learn to fulfill their clients’ needs. A startup also cannot usually manage to have resources such as on-site IT support staff, but when you work in a co-working space, such expenses and resources are shared, making it very convenient and cost-effective.


In Los Angeles, one of the key supporting features for a startup to thrive is to be based in a very good co-working space to get the support and resources they need to grow and serve their clients better. There are a number of co-working spaces in Los Angeles which are suitable for startups. The Collection ensures it is the best workspace in Los Angeles because of various factors such as their on-site IT support staff, creative architectural work-space design, and constant fiber connection to the Internet.

Another element of the workspace that can be shared among various startups includes the conference and meeting rooms, which are conducive to holding professional meetings with various investors and clients of your startup. The shared office space in Los Angeles is also ideal because it is designed to give off a lot of natural light that provides individuals with the motivation and creativity to keep production high.


The shared office floor also includes a lounge and cafe/bar that can help you unwind, relax, and take a quick break in between all the hard work. The design of this floor encourages collaboration and interaction amongst the tenants to create a relaxed, yet social environment.
