Watt Plaza Secures Long-Term Lease with Esquire Bank, Marking First West Coast Location

Watt Plaza has signed a 10-year lease agreement with Esquire Bank, a premier commercial bank serving the legal industry and small businesses. The 3,800-square-foot ground-floor location at the corner of Century Park East and Constellation Blvd. is expected to open in early 2025, marking the New York-based bank’s first West Coast office.

“Esquire Bank’s newly established presence on the West Coast will enable us to expand our customer base and better serve our existing customers by providing access to the flourishing Century City business community,” said Andrew C. Sagliocca, Vice Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President of Esquire Bank and its parent holding company, Esquire Financial Holdings, Inc.

Esquire Bank serves the legal industry and small businesses nationally, along with commercial and retail customers in the New York metropolitan area and Florida. Earlier this year, Esquire Bank announced plans to establish a branch in Southern California to better service its existing customer base and expand its reach on the West Coast.

“We are thrilled to welcome Esquire Bank to Watt Plaza, expanding its service to California and West Coast customers,” said Kathy McKay, Vice President of Leasing at Watt Plaza. “Esquire Bank’s decision to establish its presence here speaks volumes about the quality of our building and amenities, as well as our outstanding location in Century City. We look forward to a successful partnership and growth in Los Angeles for Esquire Bank.”

Watt Plaza consists of two 23-story towers offering 900,000 square feet in the heart of Century City, one of the most popular and in-demand commercial hubs in the United States. Watt Plaza recently completed a major lobby and common area renovation, further enhancing the tenant experience. The new space includes a comfortable lounge, a flexible conference center, a catering wet bar for events, retail space, and a new courtyard.

Last month, Watt Plaza also announced the lease of a full floor of its North Tower to the celebrated flexible workplace company, Industrious.
