Events Raw Space

The Switchyard

The Switchyard (500 & 540 S. Santa Fe Ave.) is a 157,247 RSF, two-building campus that sits on a 5 acre site, centrally located within LA’s Arts District. Both buildings feature great interior heights (14’-24’), boast large, efficient floor plates (25,000 – 40,000 RSF) and offer potential users a 3/1,000 SF parking ratio. The 500 S. Santa Fe building also includes a 7,000 SF penthouse with a private rooftop deck overlooking all of Arts District and Downtown LA. SteelWave recently acquired both assets and plans to enhance building exteriors, improve existing on-site amenities by way of new landscaping and a vast park connecting the buildings, upgrade restrooms, new signage and undertake further site-work to foster a campus-like feel.
