Mazda moves to new office near the Irvine Spectrum Center
Mazda has moved to its new home at 200 Spectrum Center Drive. The location, near the Irvine Spectrum, is about a mile away from Mazda North American Operations’ old headquarters.
The group moved to the new building in June. A sign was installed on the building over the weekend.
The move was first announced in January 2016.
200 Spectrum Center is owned by the Irvine Co. It is the tallest building in Orange County at 20 stories tall.
Mazda, in a 10-year contract, will occupy five floors and a lobby for a total of 113,000 square feet.
Mazda has had its U.S. base in Irvine for roughly 30 years. It had been at 7755 Irvine Center Drive since 1987.
Around 450 employees were relocated.
Mazda North American Operations Chief Executive Masahiro Moro previously told the Register the move would allow Mazda to “innovate and change the work style and the culture of the company,” calling the group’s old headquarters “old-fashioned.”
