Sadly allot of empty spaces

Well worth time and would have spent more if we had it. Many floors are empty which makes you wonder.

These are incredible buildings. The offices inside are mainly interior design and furnishing operations. But the building itself is impressive to visit. We enjoyed taking artistic pictures of the many angles of the buildings and went back at night to use the dramatic lighting in some more photos.

this is basically just an office building for companies involved in home and commercial decorating. there is nothing to see inside, nor anything to do! besides, parking in this area is awful. drive by on your way to something interesting!

The traffic getting to the center is always bad so use patience and you will be rewarded You can wander and stop to look at a variety of unique styles of design.

I have worked in this building for four years and gather inspiration from seeing the myriad number of designers with space in this complex. The building is open weekdays and you can stroll the Blue, Green and now Red Buildings and see what top designers are promoting for your personal living space. You can also park in the multi-story parking... More

They just completed another building (the red one) for the PDC..It's nice and the grounds are appealing...if you are into design a visit to the PDC is a must...a kid lose in a candy store effect.

1,200,000 square feet multi-use facility for the design community located in West Hollywood, California. One of the buildings is often described as the Blue Whale because of its outsize nature relative to surrounding buildings and its brilliant blue glass cladding. Blue Building and Red Building are open. Red building is fast being completed. NOT retail, but if you get very... More

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
