Digital Map Products Shifting HQ to Broadcom campus near UCI

August 09, 2017

Digital Map Products is moving its headquarters in late fall to the Broadcom campus at University Research Park next to UC Irvine.

The company, a provider of cloud-based location technology and data solutions, will occupy an entire 22,000-square-foot floor of one of the buildings. Digital Map Products’ new neighbor will be Toshiba America’s electronics components, information systems and logistics divisions.

Digital Map Products currently has space on Von Karman Avenue.

Broadcom plans to shift to its newer campus in Irvine next year. Broadcom has four buildings under construction near the Orange County Great Park. The new compound features an underground road that runs beneath a plaza that connects the campus. Steel girders, floors and stairways already have risen from the construction site at Barranca and Alton parkways near the El Toro “Y.”

Home developer FivePoint Communities is considering buying back the Irvine office site it sold to Broadcom for $128 million in 2015, the company said in May.

University Research Park, or URP, is currently 99 leased and has been consistently full for the past decade, according to its landlord, the Irvine Company. The campus on a 185-acre park will see a major reinvestment in the months ahead. The campus currently is home to more than 75 companies and 8,000 employees.

URP also houses Irvine Co.’s tech incubator, The Vine, where startups have generated more than $24 million in funding, and UCI Applied Innovation.
