Archway renovated the office building at 1800 Vine Street, which is leased to co-working firm Spaces. Archway’s assets include multifamily developments, medical offices, along with retail and industrial properties in California and across the country.

Demand for Hollywood office and production space continues to be strong, which has been driving investor demand, according to a fourth-quarter CBRE report. The firm said large blocks of space are in short supply in Hollywood, where existing assets are shrinking and new construction is pre-leased.

Nearby, J.H. Snyder Company owns a creative campus at 959 Seward Street that is also leased to Deluxe Entertainment, along with other media-related tenants, such as streaming startup Quibi.
