The latest office tenant at the sprawling Row DTLA complex in the Arts District is a Russia-based tech startup, bringing the property up to more than 80 percent leased.

Miro, whose main product is a video chat platform, is leasing just under 7,200 square feet at the complex for its new U.S. headquarters. Newmark Knight Frank, the leasing agent for landlords Atlas Capital Group and Square Mile Capital, announced the news. NKF’s Ryan Harding represented the partners in the deal.

Row DTLA is an adaptive reuse of a wholesale produce market built in the early 1920s and has 1.3 million square feet of office space and 65 retail and restaurant spaces. The Miro lease brings Row DTLA’s office occupancy up to 82 percent, according to NKF.

Office tenants have steadily streamed into Row DTLA. Cannabis industry firm Ghost Management Group — owner of popular dispensary finder platform Weedmaps — signed for 115,000 square feet last month.

Miro and Ghost Management Group join Dutch co-working firm Spaces and Adidas, among others.

Miro is based in Russia, with offices in San Francisco and Amsterdam, according to NKF. The company was founded in 2011 as RealtimeBoard and rebranded as Miro earlier this year.
