LOS ANGELES—The Georgetown Co. and the Hearst Corp.  have joined forces to transform the historic 1914 Herald Examiner Building into a creative office, retail and restaurant space. The property is located at the intersection of the Broadway Corridor and South Park in Downtown Los Angeles, and is considered a landmark in the downtown market. The joint venture did not reveal the capital investment to renovate the building.

“We plan on completely restoring the building and taking advantage of its unique architecture to create the premiere Creative Office building in Los Angeles,” Michael Fischer, VP of the Georgetown Co., tells GlobeSt.com. “Additionally, at street level we will have restaurants with outdoor seating, re-invigorating the street. The restaurants will be in architecturally dynamic spaces with soaring 24-foot high ceilings and beautiful double height arched windows facing Broadway as well as 11th Street.” In addition to adding restaurant space to the ground floor, plans also include re-energizing the building’s iconic two-story lobby.
