Irvine Co. Inks 115K SF at La Jolla UTC Assets

Irvine Company signed four expansion deals with tech companies at San Diego’s La Jolla UTC. The companies leased a combined 51,000 square feet at La Jolla Gateway, Nobel Corporate Plaza and The Plaza, more than doubling the space they currently occupy, as well as roughly 65,000 square feet at Eastgate Summit.

Irvine Company Office Properties’ John Turner says, “La Jolla UTC has emerged as an outstanding hub of innovation,” which is attracting forward-thinking companies seeking to “inspire their employees and spur innovation and growth.” 

Housecall Pro, a mobile application developer, plans to occupy 13,000 square feet at Nobel Corporate Plaza.

Wrike, a collaborative work management platform, will take 18,300 square feet at La Jolla Gateway. The company moved into Irvine Co. offices in 2015, and has expanded rapidly over the years, more than tripling its leased footprint in San Diego.

Fairway Technologies, experts in solving businesses’ toughest technology challenges, are moving from La Jolla Gateway to a full 19,200-square-foot floor at The Plaza.

AbacusNext, a technology-as-a-service-provider, also recently relocated to the new three-story, 65,000-square-foot Eastgate Summit.
