    500 people in 100,000 square feet?  Must feel pretty empty!

    Wow, it is about time someone cool took over that place :)

    That particular building is about 15-20 years old. I remember when it went in, they bulldozed a lumber yard and the ‘end’ of the Southern Pacific branch line that crossed Pacific Avenue.

    Sometimes there are 17 windows in the tower.  Sometimes there are more, or less…

    Besides being the former HQ for Chiat/Day this was also the Razorfish LA office from 1999-2000. Great drafty, leaky Gehry building.

    They’ve had windows broken twice last week, and then a few days ago a dead body was found in the evening not far from the building:

    Lots of pictures inside the offices here: http://www.yovenice.com/2011/11/04/google-venice-beach/     The dead body had nothing to do with google and there was no foul play.  http://www.yovenice.com/2012/01/12/homeless-man-dies-on-main/
