Real Office Centers, the co-working company that recently pulled out of its 27,000-square-foot lease at the Row in Downtown L.A., is facing trouble on another front.

Landlord Hudson Pacific Properties served ROC and its approximately 50 tenants with an eviction notice at its Santa Monica office Monday, citing two months of missed rent.

Orange County-based ROC told its tenants that the lease termination notice came without advance notice, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal. But Hudson Pacific said it was well aware of the situation because of ongoing court proceedings over payment issues.

The company has until 5 p.m. May 31 to move out of the building at 604 Arizona Avenue, the notice said.

The co-working company has made no accommodations to help with resettlement, according to tenant Kevan Rayden, co-founder and president of SwipeMarket.

“I’ve tried to call them multiple times. They are not calling back,” he told the Journal.

Earlier this year, ROC mysteriously pulled out of its 15-year lease at the Atlas Capital Group project downtown. The deal was fully complete and the space had already been partially built out before a spokesperson announced that the firm would not be moving in.  [LABJ]Cathaleen Chen
