Mazda Relocating Headquarters in 2017
They looked far and wide but, in the end, came home. Mazda North American Operations has announced that, effective February 2017, they will move into a new state-of-the-art facility in Irvine, California.
Their signed 10-year lease of the property at 200 Spectrum Center Drive is the result of a three-year search. The automaker will occupy five floors of the 21-floor building and have exclusive naming rights on the top of the building.
Officially the tallest building in Orange County, the 21-story vertical campus, owned by Irvine Company, was designed by world-renowned architect Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, encompassing a total of 426,000 square-feet. It features sleek, modern architecture with unobscured 360-degree views. Every floor is graced with 10-foot floor-to-ceiling glass allowing abundant natural light, unobstructed views of the outside, and an efficient floor plan for maximum flexibility and growth. 200 Spectrum Center was awarded “Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR” recognition in 2015 and is expected to earn a Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification upon completion.
