US Military Entrance Processing Center Takes Occupancy in New 27,000 SF Facility in San Diego

Jones Lang LaSalle supports General Services Administration with 10-year lease

SAN DIEGO, Dec., 15 2011 – The U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command (USMEPCOM) has taken occupancy of a 27,634 square-foot office located at 4181 Ruffing Road.  Jones Lang LaSalle professionals assisted the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) in the award of this 10-year lease in San Diego.  The USMEPCOM has the unique and challenging mission of determining the physical, mental and moral qualifications of every new member of the armed services.

Jones Lang LaSalle professionals representing the government included Kate Brennan, Jessica Kokish and Jeff Ingham.  Melissa Chester represented the building owner REIT Management.

“USMEPCOM was already a tenant at the property and, after assessing other options, decided that this building remains the best choice for their needs,” said Kate Brennan, Vice President Jones Lang LaSalle. “While the location is ideal, the property required significant seismic improvements.  Our team worked with the tenant and building owners to create a phased build-out plan that accommodates all parties.”

According to its website, GSA’s leased portfolio contains more than 7,100 separate properties – totaling approximately 189 million square feet – dispersed across the United States.  Since 2005, Jones Lang LaSalle has assisted GSA in the award of more than 1,000 leases.  Nationwide, the firm is currently assisting on more than 525 lease procurements for Federal civilian departments and agencies across the executive, legislative and judicial branches.
