The Collection Building in Downtown LA Announces the Opening of Their 9th Floor Flexible, Shared Workspaces and Event Location, Featuring Exclusive Monthly Private Offices

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, May 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – The Collection (, a 13-story creative office building in the Financial District of downtown Los Angeles, located in the heart of Restaurant Row at the corner of W. 7th St. & Grand Ave, announces the opening of its flexible workspace and event location on the 9th floor. The building was originally built in 1913 and has been beautifully renovated over the last five years, becoming one of the most desirable buildings in downtown LA. The 9th floor private offices and shared workspaces are expected to generate comparable demand.

“Co-working and enterprise mobility are redefining the way we work,” says Chris Ortman, co-founder and building manager of The Collection. “With the rapid growth of these mobile, 21st-century workforces, we decided a flex space was the perfect addition to The Collection. The space was custom-designed to accommodate the dynamic needs of entrepreneurs, freelancers and established enterprises. Existing tenants looking to grow their staff or host networking events can also leverage the new space.”

Private offices and meeting rooms on the 9th floor are available to rent on daily or monthly terms. Each office is indeed private, with opaque and sturdy dividing walls. Ninth-floor members with a private office will have their company’s name and dedicated suite number on their private office’s glass door, and will be featured in the ground floor lobby directory, making them indistinguishable from The Collection’s full-time tenants. For startups especially, this perk lends an air of stability that’s invaluable in the early days of a new venture. Underneath The Collection’s bold, elegant interior design is cutting-edge technology, including a direct fiber connection to the Internet backbone supplying speeds of 10-plus Gbps.

The new space is both functionally and formally integrated with the rest of the building. Centrally located on the 9th floor is a lounge and café/bar area open to all tenants and members who need a relaxing moment away, or a casual meeting with a colleague. Free specialty brewed coffee (espresso, cappuccino, latté, etc.), cold brew coffee and tea are always on tap. “With only 12 exclusive private offices, we focus on ‘hospitality,'” adds Ortman, “and provide high-end amenities that are above and beyond those of our competitors, including access to the building’s private roof-top lounge and outdoor deck.”

Current tenants of The Collection represent leaders and innovators from a wide range of creative, dynamic industries, including interior design, architecture, digital art and graphic design, film and fashion, and real estate. As such, the 9th floor flexible workspace has been engineered with collaboration in mind. Already, tenants have staged successful events and parties that demonstrate the synergistic power of people working together in great spaces.

Downtown Los Angeles is undergoing a renaissance, with new businesses springing up regularly. The Collection is ideally situated at the epicenter of this action — and the 9th floor flexible workspace takes the building to the next level.

Binary Tree Launches Power365 to Enable Multi-tenant Office 365 Collaboration


Binary Tree Launches Power365 to Enable Multi-tenant Office 365 Collaboration

Enterprise solution solving end-user collaboration problems with Office 365 migrations

PR Newswire

KENDALL PARK, N.J., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – Mergers and acquisitions represent one of the most challenging and complex enterprise transformations in the corporate world. To maximize the benefits of an engagement while minimizing potential risks, Binary Tree launched Power365, a software-as-a-service-based platform, to unlock day one productivity for M&A projects that include multiple Microsoft Office 365 tenants.

Twenty-five percent of total M&A integration efforts typically come from IT, and more than half of all synergy-relevant integration activities are critically dependent on IT, according to Gartner’s “IT Primer on Mergers and Acquisitions.” This means that unification is an essential part of M&A success.

Built on Microsoft’s Azure platform, Power365 provides a no-compromise solution to Office 365 cross-tenant integration and migration projects. Organizations going through a merger or that have users in multiple Office 365 tenants, like multinationals, often require a single email domain to maintain brand identity.

“Microsoft Office 365 is the most widely used enterprise cloud-based collaboration platform with more than 60 million commercial users,” said Binary Tree Manager of Product Architecture Justin Harris. “This is the first enterprise solution that IT Pros can use to solve the end-user collaboration problem that cross-tenant Office 365 migration projects introduce. The collaboration story is very disjointed when more than one Office 365 tenant is in the mix for an organization. Power365 relieves this pain.”

Harris, a Microsoft MVP, spearheaded the creation of Power365 in response to the constant struggles organizations face when trying to minimize end-user impact during cross-tenant Office 365 projects.

Offered in three tiers to provide a complete automated tenant-to-tenant transformation, Power365 gives enterprises the flexibility to choose the solution that fits their needs.

  • Power365 Mail Migration offers a full-fidelity, multiple-pass mailbox migration that includes public folder migration with one-way synchronization, including all content and permissions.
  • Power365 Integration adds to the capabilities of Power365 Mail Migration to provide directory synchronization for cloud-based and on-premises objects, a day-one unified address list and calendar free/busy availability lookups between the desired Office 365 tenants.
  • Power365 Integration Pro includes everything in Power365 Integration and adds a secure address rewrite capability to enable organizations with multiple Office 365 tenants to share a unified email domain so all users represent a single, cohesive brand.

“Before Power365, many of the key capabilities for integrating or migrating across a multi-tenant environment in Microsoft Office 365 were non-existent or extremely difficult to implement,” said Binary Tree’s CEO Nick Wilkinson. “Power365 provides clients with the solution to deliver a seamless and automated migration of workloads from a source-to-target tenant with minimal disruption to the end-user productivity, thus minimizing end-user disruption from day one.”

Power365 provides an extensible and automated project-driven platform that introduces an industry-first capability to seamlessly manipulate and configure on-premises Active Directory objects directly as part of a workflow synced to the cloud.
