K-Swiss Global Brands is making the move from the suburbs to the big city.
The company announced Tuesday that it intends to relocate its global headquarters from Westlake Village, Calif. to the historic Pac Mutual Building in Downtown Los Angeles by Jan. 1, 2017. The new facility will house global operations not only for K-Swiss, but for Palladium, Supra and OTZ Shoes, which K-Swiss also owns.
“As our organization grows, we feel there will be an intrinsic benefit to immersing in the progressive culture of Downtown Los Angeles,” said K-Swiss Global Brands Chairman and CEO Truman Kim. “Our new location will afford us a better opportunity to identify market trends where they happen, access a vibrant retail culture, identify synergies with other brands in the space and lay the best possible foundation for our future.”
Initial plans for the campus include global offices and dedicated showrooms for each brand, a design facility and swanky amenities including a health club, bike spa, rooftop deck and communal working space.
