Expect to get good cellphone reception at 200 Spectrum Center, Orange County's tallest office building.
Wireless infrastructure firm Crown Castle International Corp., a Houston-based real estate investment trust that's one of the country's largest operators of cellphone towers, recently expanded its presence at the 21-story Irvine Company tower, which opened for tenants about a year ago.
Crown Castle took a third floor for 22,000 square feet of additional space. It now occupies more than 66,000 square feet at the high-rise, making it the second largest tenant behind Mazda North America Operations, which leases 102,000 square feet for its local headquarters.
The building is about 93% leased, according to Irvine Co. Its only full floor not spoken for is the top one; Irvine Co. is asking monthly rent of $5.25 per square foot for the space, its website said.
A sister tower at 400 Spectrum Center is close to opening.
Both properties provide free Wi-Fi at open-air gathering places, among other amenities.
