This Week's LA Deal Sheet
American Realty Advisors is making a big move from Glendale to DTLA.
The firm, which has more than $8B in assets under management, is moving to the 49th floor of the City National Plaza building at 515 South Flower St.
The move will be advantageous to the company, placing it in the heart of DTLA's financial center, according to ARA CEO Stanley Iezman.
"DTLA is one of the key financial epicenters of Southern California, which is very desirable to employees and other businesses," Iezman said. "The synergies of this location are important to our human capital and the future growth of our firm both nationally and internationally."
He said the new location will allow the firm to be close to clients and attract new talent, including from nearby USC.
The new office will have open workspaces for team collaboration, state-of-the-art IT systems and expanded conference and meeting rooms.
The move is scheduled for June.
