A year after announcing plans to relocate to Hawthorne, the new headquarters of Amazon subsidiary Ring is taking shape at 12515 Cerise Avenue.
The maker of video doorbells, which Amazon reportedly purchased for $1 billion, will have 250 employees in the 62,000-square-foot facility – a former warehouse.
Architecture firm M-Rad is designing the space, which will include a gland atrium with clearance for 30-foot-tall trees.
The project is being developed by Vella Group, a New York-based real estate firm that is partnering on a Bjarke Ingels-designed tower project planned in the Arts District.
Just east of the Ring facility at the intersection of Crenshaw and El Segundo Boulevards, the Dinerstein Cos. has broken ground on a 230-unit apartment complex.
Ring is one of several Amazon-owned companies in the Los Angeles area. The bulk of the e-commerce giant’s local operations are currently headquartered in Santa Monica, but are gradually relocating east to the expanding Culver Studios campus.
