Pasadena is one of the most appealing suburban office markets in Southern California. Best known for hosting the annual Rose Bowl and Tournament of Roses Parade, Pasadena is located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, just 15 minutes north of Downtown Los Angeles. Located within the award-winning Plaza Las Fuentes development in the heart of downtown Pasadena, the premier office building Western Asset Plaza enjoys arguably the best location prominently located along the annual Rose Parade route, immediately adjacent to the Westin Pasadena Hotel and Pasadena City Hall, across the street from the upscale Paseo Colorado lifestyle center and central to the South Lake Avenue and Old Town shopping districts.
Pasadena is the home of many leading scientific and educational institutions, including the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Art Center College of Design, the Norton Simon Museum of Art and Pasadena City College.
The city's highly-educated workforce, world renowned educational and research facilities and thriving cultural institutions have made it an attractive location for corporate, finance and professional service firms. With excellent proximity to three major freeways - Pasadena has easy access to the 210, 110 and 134 Freeways and is served by both Bob Hope and Los Angeles International Airports.
