Following the acquisition of HFF in July 2019, JLL created a collaborative work environment by moving into its new 35,000-square-foot office at Intersect. Located at 17877 Von Karman in Irvine, Intersect is a four-building 430,000-square-foot class-A office campus situated on five acres.
Intersect is owned and operated by a joint venture between Hines and PIMCO. The new full-service office combines approximately 150 professionals specializing in leasing, management and capital markets.
JLL is focused on growing its employee base in Orange County and throughout the Southwest by recruiting professionals who support its growing business. The new office will help attract and retain top talent, reinforce the team culture, and maximize productivity in a healthy and safe environment.
“Our goal was to create a state-of-the-art office on a large floorplate that fosters collaboration, teamwork and transparency,” said Jeff Ingham, JLL senior managing director. “The new office at Intersect allows us to focus on delivering the best service for our clients while serving as a model in commercial real estate.”
JLL’s project and development services group led by Nancy Soo oversaw design and construction management of the space, working with architect H. Hendy Associates and general contractor Turelk.
