Trammell Crow Company Unveils The Boardwalk

New Office Campus Will Set the Bar for Next-Generation Work Place

NEWPORT BEACH, CA – July 22, 2015 – Trammell Crow Company (TCC), one of the nation’s largest commercial real estate developers and investors, has officially unveiled plans for The Boardwalk, a new Class A, office campus located on Jamboree Road in Irvine, California in the heart of the Irvine Business Complex. The project, which sits on 7.5 acres, will be comprised of two, nine-story towers totaling approximately 545,000 square feet of premier office space, 5,000 square feet of restaurant-focused retail and two acres of landscaped open space.  

“The Boardwalk will redefine the workplace for the next generation and give tenants a great opportunity to attract and retain top-tier talent,” said Tom Bak, Senior Managing Director of TCC’s Southern California – Newport Beach Business Unit

The Boardwalk’s revolutionary design will provide large floor plates and connect the buildings on alternating floors with indoor bridges and outdoor walkways. By bridging the two buildings, The Boardwalk offers office and amenity space unlike anything else in the market, as well as unmatched connectivity and efficiency with up to 65,000 square feet of contiguous space on a single floor.

CBRE Econometric Advisors has reported positive net absorption in Orange County across a wide variety of industries over the past several years. The Boardwalk is designed to meet the demand of users in need of large blocks of contiguous space that have been depleted over the course of the long recovery period.

In addition to iconic architecture, one of The Boardwalk’s most significant differentiators will be the two acres of meticulously planned outdoor space. The project will take advantage of Southern California’s enjoyable year-round weather by offering opportunities for relaxation, social gatherings, and outdoor workspace through the use of comfortable outdoor seating.

The Boardwalk’s best-in-class design features will include 10’-plus ceiling heights, high performance floor-to-ceiling glass, destination dispatch elevators, up to 5.0 per 1,000 parking, and a comprehensive amenity package. Plans for onsite amenities include conference and training centers, a fitness center, bike lockers, concierge service, 5,000 square feet of on-site restaurants and retail, and a rooftop patio that will provide tenants with views of the local wetlands, Saddleback Mountain and Pacific Ocean. 

“We are designing The Boardwalk from the inside out to provide our tenants with best-in-class design and a one-of-a-kind environment that extends beyond the traditional work area,” said David Nazaryk, Managing Director with TCC’s Southern California – Newport Beach Business Unit.

The Boardwalk is located at the Northwest corner of Jamboree Road and Dupont Drive, offering easy access to both the I-405 and SR-73 freeways and benefits from more than 200,000 square feet of nearby walkable restaurants and retail. Gensler has been appointed as the architect for the project. Dean Chandler, Justin Hill, and Weston Chandler with CBRE will manage leasing. TCC’s Tom Bak and David Nazaryk provide executive oversight and development leadership for the project, Matt Cramer will oversee design and construction, and Chris Tipre​ will manage marketing for the project. Construction is expected to begin the first quarter of 2016, with completion in the spring of 2017.
