Optima Tax Relief Takes More HQ Space in Santa Ana

Kearny Real Estate Co. signed a long-term lease renewal and expansion with Optima Tax Relief for 77,500 square feet at [email protected] in Santa Ana, CA. The property is an eight-acre office campus in the South Coast Metro submarket.

A tenant since 2012, the company will take an additional 2,000 square feet and consolidate its space into an entire three-story building, which will now serve as its corporate headquarters. It is the smaller of two mid-rise glass curtain wall buildings that comprise the 197,350-square-foot [email protected], located at 3100-3130 Harbor Blvd.

The move by Optima allows Kearny to market the 120,000-square-foot, five-story building with 24,000-square-foot floor plates as a multi-or single-tenant building.

Kearny acquired the property from The Colton Company for $34.8 million in January 2018. The Los Angeles-based firm is completing an extensive $20-million renovation of the office campus later this summer.
