The Federal Public Defenders Office recently re-committed to its current home in L.A.’s Little Tokyo district, following a deal worth about $16.8 million.

Charles Dunn Company representatives John Anthony, Chris Steck and Chris Giordano arranged the leasing deal on behalf of owner 321 E. Little Tokyo Master of Chicago, while the Federal Public Defenders Office was advised by GSA. Following the renewal, Anthony pointed out that the team was “able to negotiate strong market terms, ultimately providing continued stability and value to our client for another decade.”

Located at 321 E. 2nd St. in downtown L.A.’s Little Tokyo Historic District, the 10-story building is fully leased to the GSA. The building offers a total of 50,130 square feet of office space and occupies a 0.25-acre site. The 52-year-old asset offers close proximity to dining, as well as other amenities offered by DTLA.
