The mediation shall be held at the offices of JAMS or another mediation service in Los Angeles or Santa Monica or other mutually agreed location in Los Angeles County, California. A request for mediation shall be made in writing, delivered to the other party to the Agreement, and filed with the entity administering the mediation.

Either party, at its sole discretion, may include by joinder persons or entities substantially involved in a common question of law or fact whose presence is required if complete relief is to be accorded in the arbitration, provided that the party sought to be joined consents in writing to such joinder. Consent to arbitration involving an additional person or entity shall not constitute consent to arbitration of any claim, dispute or other matter in question not described in the written consent. A.3 Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs A.1 and A.2 above, if any action or proceeding is commenced by or against a third party in a court of law or with a different arbitration service and such forum is appropriate to such action or proceeding as a matter of agreement or law, and if the Facility or Client is a party to or is brought into such action or proceeding, then such party shall have the right to join the other party hereto in such action or proceeding and any issues arising under this Agreement and/or the services to be provided hereunder, may be adjudicated in such action or proceeding.

Jordan and his team were so helpful and nice! The space was gorgeous and the facility overall was perfect and went above our expectations! Thank you to the team!
Fantastic workspace! Would definitely recommend to anyone having a private meeting. Jordan was very attentive, and I appreciate his helping to plan in advance for the space.
We had our wedding at CTRL's historic penthouse and it was an AMAZING venue. Not only was the venue fantastic for our vision but the CTRL staff went above and BEYOND to help us organize and execute our wedding before and during the event. We are so thankful that we found this space and the team there.
Chris, Suzie, Marylinn and the entire CTRL Collective crew went above and beyond to make our meetings and reception a success. We felt welcome in the space and received numerous unsolicited compliments on the venue. If you are hoping to hold a meeting or large event in DTLA this is the space and team to help you achieve ideal results.
We recently hosted our annual client party here and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Christopher Go was wonderful to work with and made the whole planning process easy and enjoyable. The space itself is beautiful and very little changes needed to be made for our event. All the guests were raving about how cool and stylish the space is. I would definitely recommend CTRL Collective to anyone looking for the perfect event space!
Love LOVE this place! CTRL Collective DTLA is an amazing venue. I held a 2-day training workshop. The staff are incredibly friendly and professional. They made my training class stress-free. The space is better in person than what the photos can capture. We had a great experience there. Complimentary coffee and tea with lots of convenient kitchen amenities, super clean bathrooms, google chrome cast for presentations, and a space so beautiful you want to live here! I'm booking two more events this year with CTRL Collective. Thanks to Chris and his team for a job well done.
Awesome space with great natural light! Chris was AMAZING to work with. Super responsive and flexie. I'm definitely recommending the Creative Lab to more artists!
Chris and his team couldnt be more helpful. Amazing location. I dont believe the pictures advertised do the location justice. Its beyond what is advertised. Phenomenal choice for me as a first time user of peerspace. We filmed a few short clips there and i couldn't have picked a better location nor a better person to represent that location. Much love
CRTL Collective is amazing! The space is 100% reflective of the DTLA community - it's past and it's present. The most satisfying aspect of this experience was the incredible service provided by Chris and the entire CTRL Collective team. As a hospitality professional - service is always a standout for me. The good, the bad, and the status quo. This team, Chris in particular, provided excellent service! Welcoming, accommodating, flexible and most important connected. I consider them to be a true community partner and hope to work again with them!
