NEW HOLLYWOOD OFFICES
X2X is excited to announce a move to strengthen its presence in Hollywood.
CODEX and PIX have joined forces in new offices in downtown Hollywood in the historic Taft building. The location brings together the CODEX sales and support teams plus the PIX client team into one cohesive and collaborative space to support our common client base. The creative office space will allow our teams to showcase the latest product offering and allow us to enhance our customer support communications. X2X has also put a lab in place to design and test production workflows and efficiency solutions for our partner companies and creative services team.
SOME BACKGROUND INTEREST
The Taft Building is a historic twelve-story building at Hollywood and Vine, Hollywood, California.
It was built for A.Z. Taft, Jr., who purchased the Hollywood Memorial Church for $125.000, tore it down, and commissioned the Taft Building there by hiring architects Percy A. Eisen and Albert R. Walker. Construction completed in 1923.
It is an example of Classical Revival architecture. The architecture firm Walker and Eisen was also responsible for the Fine Arts Building, the James Oviatt Building, the Hotel Normandie, the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and the Commercial Exchange Building.
Shortly after construction completed, all the movie studios had an office in the building. Actor Clark Gable's dentist had an office there. Actors Charlie Chaplin and Will Rogers had offices there. It has housed the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
It was the first high-rise office building in Los Angeles. It is opposite the Pantages Theatre, and Audrey Hepburn's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is outside the main entrance. It has been on the list of Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments in Hollywood since 1999.
X2X are proud to be a continuing part of its history.
