*NEWS: Industrious is Busy as a Bee. Newest Partnership is For Coworking Area at Playa District campus in LA…

A national coworking company has partnered with real estate company, EQ Office, to offer a coworking space at Playa District near the Silicon Beach area of LA.

Industrious will serve as the coworking provider, as well as the tenant management operator for the 150 businesses across the 33-acre campus, according to a recent press release.

Industrious recently entered OC with its acquisition of TechSpace, which owned two coworking locations in OC. See related story here.

EQ Office, the U.S. office portfolio company wholly-owned by Blackstone’s real estate funds invested $32 million in the entire property.

In addition to coworking, Playa District also provides an on-site gym, outdoor conference rooms and activity centers, a farmer’s market and rotating food trucks.

Industrious will provide campus concierge services and event spaces, in addition to managing the fitness offerings and hosting tenant events.

The coworking space occupies more than 92,000 square-feet accommodating “solopreneurs” to teams of up to 200.

Brands like Creative Channel are using the large team suites.

Other partners include LA-based hospitality vets Marc Rose and Med Abrous, who are bringing their popular Echo Park restaurant, Winsome, to the campus.

Scheduled to open this Fall, the new outpost of Winsome will offer daily breakfast, lunch and happy hour.

And, EQ partnered with District Tech to launch a Playa District mobile platform for campus tenants. The app digitally links users to the physical space.

District Tech provides building news and updates for Playa District’s customers and allows them to RSVP for campus events. And it enables access to entry points across Playa District.
