Irvine Company Office Properties has preleased a combined 47,000 square feet of space at The Quad @ Discovery Business Center in Irvine, California, to creative workspace provider Spaces and staffing solutions company, KORE1. The two tenants bring the in-development office property to 65 percent preleased.
Both tenants took space at 530 Technology Drive. Spaces has leased 41,000 square feet and will take building-top signage when it moves in the summer of 2018. KORE1, an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company, signed a 6,000-square-foot lease. In October 2017, Irvine Company pre-leased 185,000 square feet — half of the 370,000 square-foot new campus — to medical device manufacturer Vyaire Medical Inc.
Spaces executives say The Quad’s sleek, modern design and lifestyle amenities make it a highly desirable place for companies of all sizes to innovate and grow. “Our community of achievers and thinkers desire a unique and vibrant workplace that enables connections and fosters work-life integration,” says Michael Berretta, VP of Network for IWG, owner of Spaces. “The Quad was the ideal location for Spaces to continue expanding our footprint in California. The site allows us to seamlessly create an environment that encourages collaboration and innovation, while providing easy access to an inspiring outdoor space that will help companies thrive.”
Steve Quarles, co-founder and president, KORE1, adds, “The Quad will not only support our growing company, but will also provide our employees with a dynamic workplace environment from which to continue providing the best staffing solutions for our customers.”
According to Irvine Company, buildings at The Quad features sleek, modern architecture with coastal California lifestyle amenities, including floor-to-ceiling glass and aluminum curtain walls for superior natural light and energy efficiency; sliding entry doors connecting indoor-outdoor workspaces; and advanced infrastructure for technology.
The Quad also includes two Irvine Company signature amenities: KINETIC, which offers customers a “unique, integrated approach to workplace wellness” featuring a private state-of-the-art fitness center, group fitness, and a bike-share program; and The Commons, a large open-air space with a Wi-Fi-enabled outdoor living-room, designed for meetings, team-building events, or lunch breaks.
Irvine Company adds that the “next-gen” concept was developed after extensive research into the needs of forward-thinking businesses and employees. It was also designed with sustainability in mind. The Quad recently earned “Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR” certification and recognition from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which identifies new building designs that are predicted to have high levels of energy efficiency.
“We are honored that two fast-growing and innovative companies selected our ‘next-gen’ campus to accelerate their success,” says Steve Case, EVP of Irvine Company Office Properties. “The Quad @ Discovery Business Center is designed to offer forward-thinking companies a vibrant workplace community with unique amenities to help recruit and retain top talent, inspire their employees and enhance their lives.”
