Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center has leased an additional 7,771 square feet at The Alhambra.
The new lease, announced earlier this week by The Ratkovich Company, will expand ELARC's space at the 40-acre property to nearly 115,000 square feet.
"We appreciate ELARC’s continued loyalty and take great pride in supporting them as their needs evolve,” said Kevin Duffy, a senior vice president for CBRE who represented The Alhambra in the deal. “Over the years, The Alhambra's open layout and attractive campus structure have given it the flexibility to work with ELARC to renovate and design office spaces to accommodate their growing clientele and expanded services.”
“When ELARC first moved into The Alhambra in 1996, we served more than 4,000 Californians a year,” said Gloria Wong, Executive Director, Eastern Los Angeles Regional Center in a statement. “Today, our client base has more than tripled to 12,061."
Originally built in the 1920s as the headquarters of a petrochemical engineering firm, The Alhambra was converted by The Ratkovich Company into a mixed-use campus starting in the early 2000s. It is now home to tenants including ELARC, the USC Keck School of Medicine, and Cal State Los Angeles, which recently signed a lease to open a satellite campus on the property.
Ratkovich is also pursuing the development of more than 1,000 apartments and condominiums on property wrapping the office campus.
