Amazon Expanding in California; Signs Leases in Santa Monica, San Diego and Irvine

Tech giant Amazon has announced plans to create over 2,500 jobs in the Golden State, expanding hubs in Santa Monica, Irvine and San Diego. The new facilities will support Amazon’s retail, games and web services departments.

The lease in Santa Monica is a 200,000-square-foot space at the Water Garden, managed by CBRE, and scheduled to open in the middle of 2023.  Amazon is also leasing a 123,000-square-foot space at University Town Center in San Diego and a 116,000-square-foot space at Spectrum Terrace in Irvine.

“Communities across California have welcomed Amazon over the past decade and have seen firsthand how our investments can unlock new opportunities,” said Amazon’s Holly Sullivan, VP of worldwide economic development. “These 2,500 new jobs are a fantastic opportunity for Californian’s of all backgrounds to join Amazon and build a successful career.”
