SAA showcases the future of high-rise office environments in Brookfield Design Hive Competition

Housed in the Wells Fargo Center on Grand Avenue and the Gas Company Tower on 5th street, SAA conceptualizes one of six vertical environments for potential tenants in a spec suite design competition event hosted by Brookfield. SAA has pulled from our collective industry expertise to design this progressive workspace. With Downtown Los Angeles becoming a revitalized urban center, this type of workspace will highlight the opportunity business owners will have to move their companies to a rich cultural environment and redefine the concept of flexibility and collaboration in an office.

Our suite is approximately 4,000 SF and geared toward a specific industry to be disclosed at the launch on Tuesday, May 19th. Please visit for more information about the suites and upcoming event!
