IRVINE CO.

JONATHAN BRINSDEN
GROUP PRESIDENT
IRVINE CO. COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES

WHY: OC and California’s largest office landlord, with tenant roster including many of OC’s largest medtech firms, such as Inari Medical, Axonics, and others.

BY THE NUMBERS: 53 million-square-foot operating portfolio counting over 560 buildings. The state’s largest speculative office developer with new projects underway or recently completed in the Irvine Spectrum area.

FUTURE PLANS: Eyeing a new, 532,000-square-foot life science office campus in Irvine that aims to boost Orange County stature in the biotechnology and healthcare sectors against nearby markets like San Diego. The four-building development, dubbed Academy Point, would be the largest life science office campus of its type in Orange County. Irvine Co. hasn’t disclosed a timeline for starting that project, which would be next to UCI Research Park.

IN THEIR WORDS: A website for the project touts Academy Point as “the only OC life science campus with direct access to UC Irvine, leading research hospitals, top medical device companies and life science incubators.”
