Tech Firm Leaving Santa Monica for Downtown

DTLA – Another technology company is moving its headquarters to Downtown Los Angeles. Gimbal, which makes a platform for marketing and advertising, has announced that it will trade its Santa Monica offices for the Central City.

The company will move into a 12,600-square-foot space in the 30-acre Row DTLA complex in the Industrial District. “We selected Row because we are excited to contribute to what will be a dynamic, self-sustaining community unto itself while helping revitalize and build the surrounding areas,” Matthew Russo, the company’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “Similarly, proximity to neighborhoods like the Arts and Fashion districts provide additional creative outlets that promote new ideas which keep our technology company innovating.” Gimbal employs 100 people and has offices in eight cities. The company is scheduled to move into Row DTLA in August. Also coming to Row is the headquarters of clothing company J Brand; it is scheduled to occupy 29,000 square feet of space in August.
