Irvine Company Ends 2023 with 91% Occupancy at Office Portfolio
Irvine Company notched another strong year of activity in 2023, leasing 9.5 million square feet of premium office space to more than 900 companies in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, Silicon Valley, Chicago and New York City. The company wrapped up the year with 91% of its portfolio leased, or 10% above the national average in major U.S. cities, according to Moody’s Analytics.
“Companies are drawn to Irvine Company for our premium workplaces, personalized service and industry-leading financial stability – and we’re proud that 9 out of 10 customers are likely to recommend us,” said Roger DeWames, president of Irvine Company Office. “Our 2023 leasing activity highlights the continued flight to quality in the market and the ever-growing importance of choosing not only where your company works, but who your landlord is.”
Last year, more than $650 million of capital was invested across Irvine Company’s workplaces, including reinvestment capital, operating capital and tenant improvements.
