Kidder Mathews Secures Site for Advantech’s 187K SF North American Headquarters in Tustin, CA

Posted In — News & Press | Press Releases

Advantech has secured a 9.5-acre property in Tustin, California for its North American headquarters, through a ground lease with an option to purchase with an intent to take ownership of the property at favorable terms in 2034. Kidder Mathews brokers Eric Tse and Oliver Ternate, SIOR represented the Taiwan-based technology company in securing the lease from the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD).

Plans for the build-to-suit headquarters include a six-story 108,942-square-foot office building. An additional two-story 78,837-square-foot warehouse facility will be used for storage, light manufacturing, repairing, and packaging of non-hazardous industrial computer-related products.

The property is part of SOCCCD’s Advanced Technology & Education Park (ATEP), which serves as a satellite campus for both Irvine Valley College and Saddleback College. Advantech intends to break ground on construction at the corner of Red Hill Avenue and Victory Road later this year.

“After analyzing various submarkets across Southern California, we identified ATEP as a truly unique opportunity for Advantech to build a custom-tailored facility, in Orange County’s dynamic technology hub,” said Tse. “This new North American headquarters will undoubtedly serve as a platform for Advantech’s future growth and cutting-edge innovation,” added Ternate.

“Selecting a place for our North American campus entailed more than just locating a viable construction site,” said Ween Niu, General Manager of Advantech North America. “We wanted to find a location that would address the needs of our existing team members in terms of city amenities and services, while also finding a location that would be an exciting and inspiring attraction for new talent. Co-locating on SOCCCD’s ATEP campus in Tustin also means that we have a unique opportunity to cultivate new talent with community college students through an offering of internships, externships, mentoring, and even careers.”

David Knowlton, Kirby Greenlee, and Mariko Beaver of NAI Capital represented SOCCCD.
