PMI helped pioneer creative offices in Los Angeles in the mid-1990s.
During that time period, PMI re-developed a Santa Monica warehouse into a creative office called Penn Station that is still considered the seminal multi-tenant creative office building in Los Angeles.
PMI also pioneered soft creative conversions of traditional office buildings by exposing their structural elements, opening the ceilings, and installing industrial finishes.
PMI converts warehouse in the Hayden Tract to creative office in order to join Samitaur in the Culver City creative office revolution.
In San Francisco after the dot com bust, PMI is one of those credited in helping revive SOMA and reestablishing it as a dominant technology cluster. PMI’s experiment of creating one of the first buildings in SOMA catering exclusively to startup technology companies, including Twitter, was a feature article in the Wall Street Journal in August 2010.
PMI is currently is working on the creation of “creative apartments” that incorporate many of the design features popular in creative offices and contemporary lifestyles.
