One California Plaza is located in the heart of Los Angeles’ Bunker Hill District within the prestigious, mixed-use California Plaza complex. With its unique, vertical profile of curved reflective glass crowned by a neon halo, the 42-story tower strikes a memorable silhouette against the Los Angeles skyline. The tower features executive-level conveniences, including a stunning 1.5 acre water court with multilevel, open-air seating. Surrounded by world-class amenities, One California Plaza is within walking distance of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Broad Museum, The Music Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and the Colburn School—one of the country’s premier music training facilities—and it is the closest Class-A office building to City Hall and county, state and federal courthouses. The property is also conveniently located near the freeway, as well as multiple transportation options, including the Red Line Metro Station.

Bisnow is proud to present our SoCal CRE Leadership Conference, brought to you in partnership with Colony Northstar & Rising Realty Partners this November 16th at 1 California Plaza in Downtown LA! At this standout event, we are bringing the top players & thought leaders in the industry to discuss some of the most pressing & attention-grabbing issues in the region.

2017 was a big year for CRE in Southern California. LA was deemed the least affordable city in the United States. Construction costs continued to rise, e-commerce has been making waves in the red-hot Industrial market, & all across SoCal hundreds of development projects have delivered millions of feet of new property that are redefining the standard of the built environment.

SoCal CRE Leadership Conference will boast a line up of executives representing millions of sqft of space and billions of dollars of capital across Southern California. Don't miss this opportunity to gather with the brightest in the community & learn from thought leaders with their fingers on the pulse of the market.

Don't miss the last full-day Bisnow event of the year! Join us early for breakfast, stop by in the afternoon for lunch and stay for cocktails to conclude the jam-packed day!
