Meeting budget requirements, accommodating the needs of your team, and considering the long-term positioning of your brand are all factors in choosing the best location for your office headquarters.
With all this in mind, finding the right neighborhood to put down roots in Los Angeles is no small task. The city is a diverse mix of culture, lifestyle, and business potential—home to some of the largest corporate movers and shakers in the world.
Downtown L.A. is a hub of commerce and finance. Hollywood supports a wealth of creative professionals. Walt Disney Co. is headquartered in Burbank, and Fortune 500 companies Aecom and CBRE are also within the city limits. You can find neighborhoods that are near the beach, close to hiking trails, and humming with dining and nightlife.
Whether you’re looking for a headquarters that can grow with your team, or a private office featuring your own branding and style, WeWork offers suites and custom HQ build-outs at a variety of locations across L.A. For larger companies, our enterprise solutions—in which WeWork designs, builds, and runs your headquarters in a private building—are also available in Los Angeles.
To help you find the best location for your office headquarters in L.A., here are five great neighborhoods in which to live, work, and play.
Santa Monica is home to the campuses of Amazon Studios, Viacom, and Lionsgate Entertainment—all drawn by its beachside location and innovative business scene. You can put your company right in the action at WeWork Lantana, taking advantage of our private offices and all-inclusive amenities to settle in quickly.
This sprawling workspace (perfect for creative teams) offers open, brightly lit lounges and amenities including screening rooms, business classrooms, event spaces, and filming equipment.

The Financial District is brimming with corporate offices, law firms, and real estate enterprises. The district is home to the Aon Center (the focal point of two Hollywood films) as well as Ernst & Young Plaza and Whole Foods, perfect for lunch with the team or finding your own epicurean inspiration.
Surround yourself with some of the biggest corporate players in L.A. at WeWork 1031 South Broadway. This location provides everything your team needs to thrive, including front-desk assistance, printing services, stocked kitchens, and high-speed internet.

Once home to artists such as Leo Politi and Ben Abril—and also the setting of many popular movies—Bunker Hill is today a thriving hub of culture, business, and high-end real estate.
The area benefits greatly from the revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles, while still retaining some artistic flair—the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Museum of Contemporary Art are both located here. In addition, there are plans for a $1 billion investment in this up-and-coming neighborhood geared toward increasing residential and retail spaces.
For ambitious entrepreneurs, WeWork Gas Company Tower is a vibrant space for headquarters and satellite offices alike. Set your team up with WeWork office suites and enjoy a private space that’s built into a thriving community of collaborative professionals.
A former industrial district and today an upscale part of Los Angeles, Culver City is a longstanding hub of entrepreneurship. Many art and technology companies have offices in Culver City, including Sony Pictures.
Our creative office space at WeWork 5792 West Jefferson Boulevard is in a converted warehouse and designed to fuel innovation in teams of all sizes. Three mezzanine levels create a studio-like environment, and an outdoor patio offers a welcome respite between meetings.
Choose between our range of agreements to grow your team. Opt for a private office suite, complete with your own meeting rooms and lounges, and then tap into the wider coworking community for monthly events and happy hours.
Once home to up-and-coming artists, and today filled with high-end nightclubs, art galleries, and organic eateries, Westlake North exudes energy and possibility. During the weekend, the neighborhood transforms into open markets, with vendors selling a variety of eclectic art. On Mondays, the business district resumes its regular focus, supporting startups and established companies alike.
The WeWork Fine Arts Building puts you close to Westlake North and offers a range of office solutions for teams of all sizes. The space boasts modern designs (exposed brick and brilliant hues), and frequent networking events like cheese tastings and breakfasts create a welcoming sense of community.
Take advantage of our private offices to grow your team at the WeWork Fine Arts Building. You’ll enjoy your own meeting rooms and lounge areas, all decked out with your company’s branding and aesthetics.
Whether you prefer a hometown feel or you love the city life, there’s an L.A. neighborhood that will suit your needs. At WeWork, you’ll find an office space to fit your budget, too. If you’re looking to make the most of your personal and professional life, our creative workspaces will complete your Los Angeles experience.
