among others

Now Mr Spiegel is eager to set the record straight. Over the course of a 90-minute interview, he leaves an overall impression of an independent thinker who is taking the opposite path of many of his rivals not because he is full of himself, but because he believes that young internet users are not well served by other for-profit social networks. He eschews data in decision-making, ignores design conventions with his app and has placed his headquarters near the Muscle Beach in California made famous in the 1970s by Arnold Schwarzenegger, among others.

(This comes from Snapchat co-founder Evan Spiegel: The king of impermanence on May 28, 2015.)

Is "among others" parallel to "eschews", "ignores", and "placed"? That is, he eschews ..., ignores ..., has placed..., and does other things.

Thanks in advance!

    No, the "among others" refers directly to the reference to Arnold. Muscle Beach in California was made famous in the 1970s by Arnold Schwarzenegger, just to mention one of the many people who made it famous.
