Jones Lang LaSalle Completes Lease with Kulicke & Soffa in Santa Ana for Clients Hines and Oaktree Capital Management, L.P.


SANTA ANA, CALIF., April 15, 2013 — Jones Lang LaSalle announced today that it has brokered a new 66,538 square-foot office lease with Kulicke & Soffa at Irvine Corporate Center, a two-story 126,622-square-foot office building located at 1821 E. Dyer Road in Santa Ana.  Kulicke & Soffa will occupy the space for its regional headquarters, relocating from its current location in Irvine.

Jones Lang LaSalle Orange County team members Joe Bevan and Wade Clark represented the landlord, a joint venture between Hines and Oaktree Capital Management, L.P.  Ken Ward and Dillon Dummit of Cresa Orange County represented Kulicke & Soffa, a global leader in the design and manufacture of semiconductor and LED assembly equipment.

"The tenant demand for buildings that can accommodate high-image office and R&D functions under one roof is evidenced by Kulicke & Soffa relocating to the building," said Bevan.  "The extensive remodel underway, large floor plates and above-standard parking make Irvine Corporate Center an attractive place for companies.”

In the second half of 2012, Hines and Oaktree acquired approximately 250,000 square feet in two projects within the Irvine Business Complex – Irvine Corporate Center and Bay Technology Center (now Alton Corporate Plaza). 
“We are ecstatic to have Kulicke & Soffa relocate to Irvine Corporate Center," said Hines Managing Director Ray Lawler, who leads the firm’s Orange County office. "Both Irvine Corporate Center and Alton Corporate Plaza will be transformed with the improvements currently underway."

Irvine Corporate Center is ideally located in the heart of the Irvine Business Complex with immediate access to the SR 55, I-405 and I- 5 freeways.  The property features a two-story glass façade entryway and lobby with large flexible floor plates and 15-foot deck-to-deck clearance.  Irvine Corporate Center can accommodate office, laboratory and manufacturing tenants ranging from 15,000 to 65,000 square feet.
