The building at 1019 East Fourth Place, referred to on WeWork’s site as Maxwell, is five floors of office space with industrial windows, exposed brick, colorful office-bohemian furniture, and views of the Downtown skyline from some offices.
Some floors are still works-in-progress—the ground floor, where the main open coworking area will be, is expected to open in November—while others look plucked out of any other WeWork in the city.
WeWork leased the entire three-building site, including an adjacent, roughly 40,000-square-foot structure with five floors of parking and three of offices.
WeWork announced in July that it had signed its 30th lease in the LA area—four floors in the Wilshire Courtyard in Miracle Mile.
The locations are listed as “opening soon” on WeWork’s site, but a WeWork representative did not respond to requests to share details about when they would debut.
The fourth floor common area and the second floor look like they could be in any WeWork in the city.
Last week, WeWork’s chief executive officer Adam Neumann was pushed out; this week, WeWork’s parent company indefinitely postponed its IPO, and there is a real possibility that the company’s $47 billion valuation could be sliced down to $20 billion.
