California Market Center Enclosure Recladding and Renovation

Los Angeles

California Market Center (CMC) is located in the heart of Downtown’s LA Fashion District. CMC is home to offices, special event venues, fashion industry showrooms, restaurants, fitness studios, banks, and much more. The renovation project will overhaul the massive Fashion District complex which houses more than 1,000 wholesale showrooms. Class A office space will be created in the 1963 building, as well as ground floor retail space. CMC will remain operational while the work takes place.

Walter P Moore is working on the recladding of two of the three buildings that make up CMC. We performed an initial visual façade assessment using rope access methods. Additional assessments will include exploratory openings on the roof and facades to better understand the existing systems. Walter P Moore is working with Gensler to design the recladding of the facade. We are also providing restoration services for the third building where the facade will remain unchanged.
