McCormick Construction Announces Completion of the $2.7 Million LINQ Creative Office Renovation in Redondo Beach
Tenants of the 80,000 SF facility include two major technology companies
McCormick Construction, a premier builder shaping the culture of buildings and businesses throughout the Western United States since 1914, has announced the completion of the $2.7 million renovation of LINQ, an 80,000-square-foot creative campus located adjacent to the Redondo Beach Metro station at 2400 Marine Ave. in Redondo Beach, California. Owned by Montana Avenue Capital Partners, the newly renovated campus comprises four quadrants, three of which have already been leased to two major technology clients.
“We continue to see an increase in the demand for creative office spaces that integrate the latest trends in technology and sustainability,” said Michael McCormick, president and CEO of McCormick Construction. “With the renovations now complete, LINQ has been transformed from a former industrial and office facility into a leading creative office space for the South Bay.”
McCormick’s scope of work for the exterior of the facility included constructing new Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant concrete ramps, an ipe wood deck and new exterior façades and door entries, updating the building with a fresh coat of paint, new lighting, an upgraded fire system and roof, as well as new parking lots and driveways. Interior renovations included completely gutting the space and building new demising walls, upgrading the electrical service, and constructing new core bathroom facilities, skylights and a brand new main lobby area. To appeal to a range of tenant types, Montana Avenue Capital Partners requested additional renovations by McCormick to meet current trends in creative office such as polished concrete floors, exposed ceilings, glass roll-up doors, indoor-outdoor collaborative workspaces, electric vehicle charging stations and new landscaping that meets the latest drought-tolerant codes.
“McCormick’s extensive experience with both creative office renovations and tenant improvement work proved instrumental to the success of our project,” said Vice President of Montana Avenue Capital Partners, LLC, Steve Elson, whose firm leased the campus to two global technology tenants.
The McCormick project management team members included Alan Hartley, director of interiors and special projects; Hector Bocanegra, superintendent; and Joe Adelaars, project manager. Ware Malcomb was the architect for the project. Structural engineering services were provided by Insight Engineering.
In addition to LINQ, McCormick’s recent creative office projects include Nickelodeon Animation Studio, a five-story, 110,000 square foot production building which held its grand opening in early 2017; Element LA, a 12-acre, 300,000-square-foot adaptive reuse creative office campus which is fully leased to Riot Games; and Santa Monica Gateway, a 200,000-square-foot, Class A office project which is currently under construction in Santa Monica.
