The Honest Company has signed a long-term lease for 83,000 square feet in Playa Vista. The move will enable The Honest Company to expand their operations and staff as they site their headquarters in Los Angeles in early 2016.
“We are committed to growing our local economy by helping companies come to our city and create more jobs for Angelenos,” said Los Angels Mayor Eric Garcetti. “L.A. is the perfect home for The Honest Company, an emerging brand committed to service and sustainability, and we welcome the company and its hundreds of employees to the expanding community at Playa Vista. This move proves once again that our city is the place for companies to do business.”
“Playa Vista is the next frontier of technology in Los Angeles and we’re excited to be calling it home,” said Jessica Alba, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of The Honest Company. “It’s inspiring to share the imagination and energy at the heart of innovation with like-minded companies as neighbors. We’re looking forward to building a unique cultural atmosphere that creates more tech opportunities in Playa Vista.”
“I’m thrilled to welcome The Honest Company to the new heart of Silicon Beach,” said Mike Bonin, who represents the area on the City Council. “Smart, tech-savvy companies like The Honest Company are continuing to create good jobs as they move in to Playa Vista and I am very excited to see our vision for the community continue to be realized.”
Playa Vista is fast becoming a hub for technology and creativity, housing companies such as YouTube, 72andSunny, Microsoft, Facebook, Gehry Studios, IMAX, Popchips, and Sony Playstation. Mayor Garcetti recently signed a cut to the top rate of the business tax and continues to champion the tax holiday for new businesses.
