“Avalon” is down to one remaining tenant space following contemporary redesign
Newport Beach, Calif. – Bixby Land Company has signed two new leases at Avalon, the redesigned two-story office building developed by Bixby at 1501 Quail Street in Newport Beach, Calif.
Online product marketing company eJam has leased 4,216 square feet, relocating within Newport Beach from a former location at 1375 Dove Street. eJam has undergone rapid growth as an Alibaba reseller, and was represented in the lease by Jack McNutt of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.
“A deciding factor in the leasing decision for eJam was the ambiance of the building and the attention to detail in the design and the materials used throughout the project,” said Bill DeLaney, asset manager at Bixby Land Company. “The project has a unique vibe that companies recognize the moment they enter the building.”
Style Interior Designs, an award-winning interior design firm, is relocating from an Irvine, Calif. location to lease 3,071 square feet at Avalon. Style Interior Designs, which sought a high-image office environment to complement the firm’s design aesthetics, was represented by Richard Sung of Orion Property Partners.
Bixby Land Company was represented in both transactions by Bob Thagard and John Harty of Cushman & Wakefield.
These lease transactions leave Avalon with one remaining office suite available in the building, a 13,388-square-foot space featuring a separate private entrance, dedicated restrooms, and an open, flexible floor plan.
Avalon appeals to companies that value a vibrant work environment for their employees. Designed by Rapt Studio’s Sam Farhang, the building features a second floor indoor/outdoor lounge, The Loft, where tenants can relax and recharge. Avalon is dog friendly, offers beach cruisers for tenants’ use, and has an electric vehicle charging station.
Separately, Bixby has recently leased approximately 21,000 square feet at CERRO, a four-story professional office building in South Orange County that is now 93 percent leased. Included in that leasing activity is a transaction with Pulte Homes, which will occupy the majority of the top floor. Justin Hill and Simon Dillon of CBRE represent Bixby Land Company at CERRO.
