Pacific Design Center Change this
Description Change this
The Pacific Design Center is a 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. An architectural landmark anchoring Los Angeles’ elite design district, Pacific Design Center (PDC) is the West Coast destination for global design.
The 750,000 square-foot “Blue Whale,” realized by architect Caesar Peli, FAIA, revolutionized L.A.’s design industry in 1975, creating a premier, all-inclusive trade resource to procure high-end designer goods. Forty years hence, PDC continues to innovate. Transformed by Peli’s iconic “Green” and “Red” Building additions, the 1.2 million square-foot campus now connects top-tier design, art, media and entertainment brands within an award-winning commercial market center.
Coveted for its ideal location, generous floor plans, exceptional amenities and responsive management, Pacific Design Center is the choice showroom location preferred by today’s leading manufacturers of best-in-class design.
