Rutan & Tucker Relocating HQ to Trammell Crow’s The Boardwalk in Irvine

Rutan & Tucker, LLP signed a 12-year lease to relocate its Costa Mesa headquarters to Trammell Crow Company’s The Boardwalk in Irvine, CA. The law firm will take roughly 72,000 square feet, bringing the recently-developed project to 75% leased.

TCC’s Tom Bak says, “This is a huge win for Irvine and for our project; a true testament that Orange County is a great place to be and to do business.”

Located at 18565-18575 Jamboree Rd., The Boardwalk sits on a 7.5-acre site in the heart of Orange County’s CBD. The office project includes more than 550,000 square feet spread across a pair of nine-story buildings.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Bob Thagard, Christopher Bosley, Ali Anderson, and Jason Ward represented the tenant. The landlord was represented by CBRE’s Dean Chandler, Justin Hill, and Weston Chandler.

The firm will receive prominent building top signage as part of the relocation deal, which ranks as the second biggest office lease in Q2 2019.
