Vermont Corridor is the 468,000-square-foot Los Angeles County Administrative Office Tower.
The Class A office building is part of the Vermont Corridor redevelopment project serving as an administrative building for County of Los Angeles departments. The transit-oriented development is located in the Los Angeles’s Korea-town community within one block of the Metro Red and Purple subway lines. The building is comprised of 12 stories of administrative office, approximately 478,877 square feet of rentable space: including one story of indoor/outdoor terrace level, providing ancillary conference space, employee lunchroom, and an employee fitness center. Additionally, the ground lobby features retail space a mental health peer resource center to serve the community, Department of Mental Health’s first clinic in Korea-town, and a satellite office for 2nd District County Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell. The floor to ceiling glass, and open floor plan, optimizes 360-degree views of Los Angeles throughout each office level, while the building façade utilizes energy efficient glass and aluminum fins to bring natural light into the building, while reducing energy demands.
Other sustainable building measures include the re-use of on-site water for landscaping, optimized energy performance, green cleaning requirements, use of recycled and regional materials, increased building ventilation, interconnecting stairs, and indoor/outdoor amenities to support exterior activities. The project received LEED Gold Certification and was designed to meet WELL Silver standards.
