Gunderson Dettmer Leases 25k sf Building in DTLA’s Arts District


Gunderson Dettmer, an international law firm with an exclusive focus on the innovation economy, inked a lease for an entire 24.6k sf, two-story building at 635 Mateo in the Arts District of downtown Los Angeles.

The property was built in 1929 to serve as the headquarters for Hills Brothers Coffee. It later became the corporate offices of the Southwestern Bag Company, which transformed the location into a major filming location for movies and television shows including Beverly Hills Cop, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Gunderson Dettmer will use the space for its Los Angeles headquarters office.

JLL’s Nicole Mihalka, Dana Vargas and Caitlyn Ross represented the landlord, Mateo Street Properties Inc. Gunderson Dettmer was repped by Richard Abbitt and Ryan Shuler of Industry Partners.

"We have seen a trend of more traditional companies like law firms, financial services companies and real estate businesses leaving high-rise office environments for unique freestanding buildings,” said Mihalka. “This building provides Gunderson Dettmer with a striking destination for its brand, employees and clients in Los Angeles.”

True to the style of the 1920s, 635 Mateo’s simple, industrial framework was outfitted with exposed brick, dramatic arched windows and Art Deco tile façade. The campus-like property features a rooftop deck, sawtooth skylights, new building systems and dedicated parking lot.
