Leading commercial interiors firm Westfall Commercial Furniture and global flooring provider Shaw Industries have renewed their leases at FourFortyFour South Flower Street in downtown Los Angeles owned by Coretrust Capital Partners. Westfall signed a six-year lease for 6,670 square feet on the 43rd floor, expanding its space by 2,200 square feet. Shaw Industries, a wholly owned subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, has exchanged its previous sublease for a direct lease of 4,700 square feet on the 3rd floor in space that overlooks the recently renovated outdoor Bridge Terrace along Flower Street. The Shaw space is home to a showroom for the company’s Shaw Contract brand, which serves the commercial design, construction, and real estate industry.
“FourFortyFour has been a terrific location for us to grow our business, leading us to expand our space for the future and build an entirely new state-of-the-art showroom,” said Tyler Westfall, Owner & Vice President-Sales of Westfall Commercial Furniture. “Our commitment to the building is even stronger because we know it is the safest and healthiest workplace in the city, if not the country, for our staff, our customers and our furniture partners. The investment made to health and wellness by Coretrust, the building owner, has deeply impressed all of us at Westfall.”
“We decided to become fulltime tenants at FourFortyFour due to the excellent customer service of the Coretrust staff, the great amenities, and the building owner’s commitment to people and the planet that aligns with our values and ambitions,” said Jeff West, vice president of marketing and product development at Shaw Contract. “We are particularly pleased to have a new open air garden patio adjacent to our office, giving us a true Los Angeles outdoor space where our associates and customers can enjoy sunshine and fresh air.”
“We are pleased that these preeminent firms have renewed and expanded their space with us,” said Thomas S. Ricci, Managing Principal and a co-founder of Coretrust. “Westfall and Shaw are two of the fine interiors, architecture, engineering and commercial services firms that now occupy about 100,000 square feet at FourFortyFour, transforming the tower into a downtown design hub,” Ricci added. “These firms showcase our building to thousands of top business and professional visitors each year.”
