State-of-the-art technology from top to bottom brings 5G speeds to internet, uninterrupted cell service, conferencing assets, unlimited amenities
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Coretrust Capital Partners is partnering with Connectivity Wireless to transform its downtown Los Angeles tower, FourFortyFour South Flower, into a smart building with state-of-the-art 5G technology that gives tenants and guests the fastest possible internet speeds and complete cellular coverage.
“Encircling the building like a string of pearls, the new technology ensures uninterrupted cell calls throughout the building from the underground parking garage to our outdoor plazas, restaurants and stores, even the elevators,” said Thomas Ricci, Coretrust Managing Principal. “Furthermore, the internet speeds are lightning fast and can carry any size document, video, or portfolio that tenants may need to send or receive. Even large-scale architectural drawings can be sent in seconds.”
The DAS (Distributed Antenna System) comprises 317 multi-band antennas and 20 software-defined remotes for fiber optic connectivity to cover the 1,244,925 million square feet of the 48-story tower. The technology enhances all cell phone calls, regardless of the carrier network, and is not affected by volume nor dependent on nearby cell towers. Major carriers are online as Connectivity continues to actively pursue additional carriers.
“Downtown Los Angeles tenants from law firms to technology creators deserve the fastest and most reliable cellular and internet coverage available,” notes Ricci. “We are pleased to partner with Connectivity Wireless, the top firm in this critical field, to make our building totally connected in this ‘Internet of Things’ generation.”

Coretrust has been cited by Fast Company magazine for its compelling workspace and wellness-based innovations at FourFortyFour. These include a fresh air terrace hacked from the building’s curtain wall, aromatherapy, pioneering soundscapes, a world-class art collection, atriums and plazas, restaurants, and a fitness center. A 12,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art conference center that features the new smart building technology opens next month.
“Coretrust is forward-thinking in its approach to tenant services and deploying this new technology puts Fourfortyfour at the forefront of the trend to smart buildings,” said Thom Antonopoulos, Chief Revenue Officer at Connectivity Wireless. He points out that studies show early adopters of technology benefit the most from it. “This system is definitely a competitive edge for the property,” he emphasized.
Coretrust Capital Partners is completing a $35 million renovation at FourFortyFour South Flower which it purchased in December 2016.
