IRVINE, Calif. (April 12, 2021) — Irvine Company today introduced Innovation Office Park, a first-of-its-kind open-air office village offering more than 1.1 million square feet of creative and flexible workspace. With 28 loft-style buildings naturally connected by a central pedestrian pathline, Innovation Office Park delivers a workplace designed for health, wellness, and growing businesses in the prominent Irvine Spectrum business district.
Innovation Office Park features expansive indoor and outdoor connectivity, an indoor/outdoor cafe with rotating cuisine and walk-up artisan coffee bar, an event-ready pavilion, a private fitness center featuring spin/yoga studio and tech-enabled conference and event space. These industry-leading amenities help enhance and simplify the lives of workers while giving customers a competitive advantage in the battle to recruit and retain top talent.
“Today’s most competitive companies seek workplaces that help them innovate, collaborate and thrive in an environment that promotes wellness and safeguards employees’ health,” said Steve Case, executive vice president, Irvine Company Office. “We have brought our decades of expertise and deep customer research to create a dynamic and human-centric workplace community that meets a changing set of expectations with the quality we’re known for and the flexibility growing and innovative companies desire.
“We are seeing strong early interest as health metrics improve, the vaccines roll out and companies plan their return to the office and post-pandemic growth strategies.”
Located at the desirable confluence of the I-5 and 133 freeways, Innovation Office Park’s first eight buildings totaling 300,000 square feet are now available.
Companies can customize their space through branded super-graphics on the building exterior, and select from a curated menu of private patio furniture and tailored interiors to reflect their culture. Irvine Company also offers unrivaled leasing flexibility, starting at six months, through its Flex Workspace+ program.
The workplace community features a range of building sizes, from 20,000 to 64,000 square feet – with suites sizes starting as small as 2,000 square feet. The building architect is LPA. The landscape architect is Burton Studio.
Designed with industry-leading workplace wellness systems built-in, Innovation Office Park features premium upgrades to meet the needs of health-focused customers, such as oversized roll-up doors that lead to private patios, operable windows for fresh air, MERV-13 air filtration for healthier air circulation, and state-of-the-art Viracon glass and skylights for maximum energy-efficient daylighting.
An olive grove featuring more than 2,600 mature olive and pine trees connects the workspace to the California outdoors.
Irvine Company is the first in the nation to have its workplace communities designated as Verified Healthy Buildings, through a program managed by UL, a global safety science leader recognized for their indoor environmental quality services.
Irvine Company also consulted with UCI Health to review and enhance its comprehensive program helping companies come back with confidence to its more than 50 million square feet of workplace communities. With new cleaning regimens, safety etiquette signage, touchless entries, maximized ventilation rates and hundreds of hand sanitizing stations, Irvine Company has invested in the health and safety of its customers.
Located on 73 acres, roughly the size of Fashion Island, Innovative Office Park is minutes from Irvine’s renowned residential villages, shops, restaurants, parks, the Great Park, hiking trails and vast preserved natural open spaces. The onsite ½ mile campus-wide pedestrian pathline will feature varying amenities that can be adapted to employees’ individual needs throughout the work week.

The city has been ranked among the most desirable cities to live in the United States for 10 consecutive years, boasts the fastest population growth rate among large West Coast cities, is No. 1 in terms of educational attainment for large U.S. cities, and is home to 23,000 companies, including leaders in sciences and information technology to digital arts and media and more.
