Located at 707 Wilshire Blvd Los Angeles, EC101 will serve as Edge Centres' core location on the west coast. Our footprint in Downtown Los Angeles is distributed between three separate facilities offering true dispersed Edge capability."

The skyscraper is known as Aon Center, owned by Shorenstein Properties. Aon Center is a 62-story office building located at 707 Wilshire Boulevard.
