CBRE announced earlier this year that it will be moving its Global Corporate Headquarters and 200 regional employees into the top two floors at 400 South Hope Street in Downtown Los Angeles in September. The new CBRE office will be one of the company’s first “Workplace360” offices in the United States. Workplace360 is CBRE’s Alternate Workplace Strategy initiative, which maximizes employee collaboration and productivity through technology, space utilization, sustainability, mobility and enhanced flexibility, and health/wellness. Workplace 360 offices are designed to support the way CBRE employees work today and in the future, and to reflect the strategic advice that CBRE is increasingly providing to its occupier clients.


“In the process of designing our new space, we extensively researched different strategies that would allow us to work more collaboratively and efficiently in serving our clients. The result will be one of the most forward-thinking offices in the country, and will reflect the strategic advice that we are providing to our occupier clients who are increasingly exploring new ways to work better, smarter and more productively in an increasingly mobile, highly connected world. This is not simply about driving efficiencies – it’s about building a more collaborative, mobile and healthy environment. In short, it’s about building a better company.”
