As owner of the space, real estate developer and managing partner of Faring Capital - Jason Illoulian thought FACTORY WEST would thrive in the building's industrial space. "I am excited to add such a creative and diverse tenant to the neighborhood." Illoulian has been an integral part of the recent development of the area, serving as an active board member of the Avenues of Art and Design. "I feel it is crucial to be active in the community to understand the growth and urban fabric of a neighborhood." The developer previously served as a board member of the West Hollywood Project Advisory Committee and the West Hollywood Library Fund from 2009-2012.
The firm started as a small investment firm and in the last three years has developed three large-scale commercial and residential properties in West Hollywood, built a nation-wide tutoring company with 100 employees and 4,000 tutors, and invested in a patent portfolio containing social media and search intellectual properties.
FACTORY WEST will be the premiere social destination in Los Angeles for forward-thinking creators in the industries of art, music, fashion, entertainment and culture. The venue will be opening in West Hollywood this February at 7811 Santa Monica Blvd.
