Edmunds.com, the car shopping website, has inked a deal to make the Colorado Center its new HQ.

The online car review service has moved its 700 of its employees to a 143,000-square-foot space in one of the six buildings that make up the Colorado Center in Santa Monica, the L.A. Business Journal reported.

Its new headquarters features custom car-themed designs and amenities such as a 32-foot steel slide that connects two floors, an outdoor projector screen, frozen yogurt machines and an arcade with a foosball table and air hockey.

There is also an installation of life-sized Corvettes — 1966 and 2016 — in the reception area, as well as another life-sized 1948 Cadillac Fleetwood used as a beer and coffee bar.

The Colorado Center recently sold to Boston Properties, marking the New York firm’s first L.A. acquisition. The company purchased Blackstone Group’s 50 percent stake in the office complex for more than $500 million. [LABJ]Cathaleen Chen
