Home has taken on countless new meanings over the last year and a half. It’s a place to sleep soundly and rise again, to work and work out, to connect with loved ones and disconnect from the fast-paced world outside.
When it comes to digital content creation, one needs a functional, well-designed space to not only shoot, edit and produce, but also to rest comfortably at the day’s end. So, it should come as no surprise that Thirty Four Fifty West has attracted some of TikTok and Youtube’s most prolific creators, including none other than the Internet’s favorite Andrew Bachelor — more famously known as King Bach. Even The Hollywood Reporter has taken notice.
Actor, composer, rapper and comedian who first rose to fame on Vine where he earned 11.3 million followers and over six billion loops, Andrew is among the first Internet personalities to gain a tremendous following. Today, he boasts 23.7 million followers on TikTok and 21.2 million on Instagram, requiring him to produce comedic content at record speed. When it came to finding a space in Los Angeles to do just that, Andrew had no doubt that Thirty Four Fifty West’s flexible live-work residences would offer the perfect set-up in a prime location.
Below, follow along for the latest edition of The Live-Work Life featuring an interview with Andrew about what’s in the pipeline for his career and just why he chose Thirty Four Fifty West for his workbase and homebase in LA.
Can you share a little bit about what’s coming up for King Bach?
You can find me on-screen in National Champions which will be released in theaters on November 24. It’s an American sports drama film directed by Ric Roman Waugh that follows a quarterback who begins a strike to fight for fair compensation, equality and respect for athletes. I’ll also be doing a stand-up tour in 2022. There are tons of exciting things happening for King Bach, so keep an eye out!
How would you say TikTok and other social media platforms have influenced your business?
Social media platforms have helped grow and advance my business, without a doubt. On the acting side, I’m working on a show for Facebook Watch as part of the We the Culture Program and co-own the Zeus Network. On the business side of things, I’m expanding into new ventures like my partnership with Gloveworkx boxing gym which has two locations in Los Angeles and one in New York City.
Why did you choose to purchase at Thirty Four Fifty West?
The convenient location of Thirty Four Fifty West was a huge attraction for me. I immediately fell in love with the functionalities of the residence and saw it was the ideal workspace. I can be creative here, but also hold meetings. It’s truly the perfect space to create, relax and get business done.
What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not working at home?
I love to work out. I either box at Gloveworx, run by the beach or play a game of pick-up basketball with my friends.
Where do you want to travel to next?
If you could only eat at three restaurants in the local area, where would you go?
