Steinberg Hart will move into a nearly 12,000-square-foot space Downtown, relocating from a nearby location.

The architecture firm will occupy Downtown Properties’ recently renovated historic office building at 818 W. 7th Street, it announced Thursday.

Steinberg Hart’s Los Angeles team will move from its existing location at 523 W. 6th Street. The firm, whose work includes residential, commercial and mixed-use developments, also has offices in San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego and Shanghai, China.

Chris Caras, Philip Sample, Brad Chelf, Brandon Bank and Taylor Watson of CBRE represented Downtown Properties on the deal. John Eichler of Cushman & Wakefield represented Steinberg Hart.

Steinberg Hart has designed some of L.A.’s biggest projects, including the Hazens LA City Center in Downtown, Relevant Group’s Morrison Hotel, Tommie Hotel and Thompson Hollywood Hotel.

The lease at the renovated building follow’s the announcement that the Los Angeles Football Club inked a lease for 25,000 square feet at the building. The LAFC will house its business operations in the Downtown space, located just a few miles south of the recently opened $350 million Banc of California Stadium.

Downtown Properties, associated with Goodwin Gaw’s Gaw Capital, completed a renovation of the historic 12-story office building earlier this year. The firm purchased the near century-old 377,000-square-foot building in 1996, when it was just 33 percent leased.
