LOS ANGELES-The structural engineering firm of Nabih Youssef & Associates has signed an eight-year, $3-million lease for a relocation and expansion within the 800 Wilshire Blvd. building, according to the Ratkovich Co., owners of the Downtown office building. Youssef, which has been an 800 Wilshire tenant since 1991, will occupy 14,235 sf on the second floor of the 16-story, 216,042-sf project at the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Flower Street.

Ratkovich was represented by the Jones Lang LaSalle team of Lisa St. John, James Malone and Dan Baumeister, with John Eichler of Cushman & Wakefield representing Youssef. The Ratkovich Co. purchased 800 Wilshire in association with Prudential Real Estate Advisors in March for approximately $30 million. Wayne Ratkovich, president, says the new owners plan a major renovation of the property, which was built in 1971 and is 82% leased. Plans call for renovation of the main lobby, the parking garage lobby and other public areas of the building beginning next year.
