Six and five seem to be the magic and lucky numbers for the city's newest office tower.
Citicorp Center--first phase of a $650-million development--is scheduled to open next month with nearly 65% of its 900,000 square feet of leasable space committed--a high percentage for a building of this size.
Initial occupants in the 42-story tower, at 7th and Figueroa streets--opposite the Los Angeles Hilton hotel--will be the western division of Citicorp, the world's largest financial institution; the Lillick McHose & Charles law firm and Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co., accounting firm.
General partner of the center is the Oxford-Prudential Joint Venture, made up of Oxford Properties Inc., and Prudential Insurance. Citicorp and Lillick McHose & Charles are also equity partners in the project's initial phase.
