The co-working company Centrl Office has inked a deal at Brunswig Square in Little Tokyo, adding to the recent flurry of co-working companies setting up shop in Los Angeles.

This will be Centrl Office’s third location and first one outside Portland, Oregon, according to the Los Angeles Business Journal, which first reported the story. The company signed a 10-year lease for the seventh and eighth floors at the building, located at 356 – 374 E. 2nd Street. The company will move into the 140,000-square-foot building in the fall, the Journal reported.

Nico Vilgiate and Ryan Hoopes of Colliers International represented Centrl. Chris Penrose of CBRE represented the landlord, Jamestown.
