San Fernando Valley Creative MXU Redev Unveiled

Construction wrapped up at The Mix at Harman Campus, a creative office redevelopment at 8500 Balboa Blvd. in Northridge, CA. The 44-acre mixed-use site combines office, retail, and restaurant space in a campus environment, and was developed by Shubin Nadal Realty Investors.

The San Fernando Valley property’s creative office space features collaborative indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, game areas, private patios, a food truck pavilion, on-site restaurants, brand-name retail services and a 30,000 square foot town square/central park.

The three-phased project broke ground in May 2016. Phases 1 and 2 encompassed the renovation of an existing 200,000-square-foot building into a multi-tenant creative office space. Phase 3 included construction of two new single-story speculative retail and restaurant buildings totaling 17,000 square feet, along with Town Square Park, a central landscaped courtyard amenity space, featuring bocce ball courts and outdoor dining areas.

Ware Malcomb provided master planning, architecture, interior design, and branding services for the project.
