NEW YORK, NY (December 9, 2019) – Industrious, the largest premium workplace provider in the U.S., today announced its plans to expand its presence in Orange County, CA with a new location in Costa Mesa. Industrious is partnering with EQ Office (“EQ”), the U.S. office portfolio company wholly-owned by Blackstone’s real estate funds, on its recently-announced CANVAS project. In addition to being the newest shared workplace location for the national provider, Industrious will also manage the tenant experience for the five-building, 538,000-square-foot campus.
“Orange County is a dynamic and evolving office market with strong demand for shared workplaces and engaging campus settings,” said Katharine Lau, senior director of real estate at Industrious. “Delivering an amazing workplace experience is a core part of the Industrious DNA, and our history of partnering with innovative owners allows us to do so on a grander scale. EQ Office is focused on delivering unparalleled tenant spaces and experiences, and we’re proud to be partnering with them on a second office campus project.”
Tenant experience management allows Industrious to bring the features, amenities, and programming typically reserved for members within its shared workplaces to tenants across the campus. Industrious will activate common spaces and curate compelling programming for tenants across all five buildings in order to foster a sense of cross-campus community and deliver a more productive and engaging workplace environment. Industrious will also have a 30,000-square-foot shared workplace facility on the campus, which is expected to be open for business Q1 2020.
“After a successful, first-of-its-kind collaboration with Industrious at EQ’s Playa District, our six-building, 1.4 million-square-foot workplace destination, we’re excited to continue our partnership at CANVAS. Industrious will be activating the campus through unique programming, service and amenities and has assisted EQ in our mission to drive tenant engagement. We look forward to working together in developing the creative, vibrant CANVAS community,” said Brendan McCracken, SVP Portfolio Director, EQ Office.
