WeWork and Industrious aren’t the only co-working companies eating up L.A. office space.

IgnitedSpaces is also spreading its wings downtown, having signed a 42,161-square-foot lease at Jamison’s California Market Center in the Fashion District.

The L.A.-native firm will occupy the entire 12th floor of the 13-story building at 110 East 9th Street — one of three structures at the urban campus.

Under their agreement, Jamison will build out the space according to IgnitedSpaces’ design concepts. The resulting office suites will include event spaces, a photo studio, a theater, a high-tech meeting room and lounge space. Plans also call for a rooftop deck, a 35,000-square-foot gym and spa plus a food court. Rents for the space were not immediately available.

“We put our faith in Jamison to form a strategic alliance when we launched our first facility at 7080 Hollywood,” IgnitedSpaces Co-Founder Matt Davis said in a statement. “CMC is at the epicenter of the fashion and apparel business and the perfect location for our expansion into Downtown Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Jamison is undertaking a multimillion-dollar renovation of the campus.

Last month, the company scored a major tenant for its historic Harbor Building at 4201 Wilshire Boulevard. Entertainment company eOne signed a 26,000-square-foot, five-year lease at the 1950’s-era building.

The firm will be upgrading the Fashion District building’s wi-fi infrastructure, common areas and facade, according Jamison head of leasing Jaime Lee. — Cathaleen Chen
