Online clothing retailer Zappos has become the latest company to set up shop at the ROW DTLA complex at 7th and Alameda Streets.

The four-year, 5,500-square-foot lease will be used for the Las Vegas-based company’s marketing team.  According to an announcement by ROW DTLA, the Amazon subsidiary was drawn to the property for its proximity to Los Angeles’ core, as well as other tech, entertainment, and e-commerce companies such as Shopify, UBTech, Greenlots, Sharp Electronics, Mitu, and Gimbal.

ROW DTLA, built as a distribution hub for the Southern Pacific Railroad, is being repurposed by New York-based real estate investment firm Atlas Capital Group as 1.3 million square feet of office space with ground-floor shops and restaurants.

Atlas Capital Group is currently rehabilitating a former Ville de Paris department store at 7th and Olive Streets as offices, and is pursuing the construction of a 725-unit apartment complex in Chinatown.
