In a twist of industrial leasing news, an Inland Empire company is moving its headquarters to Orange County from the Inland Empire.
Oadeer, a home furnishing wholesaler formerly based in Chino, signed a seven-year lease for 54,774 square feet at 718 Lakeview Loop Way, a new industrial center in Placentia.
EXPO Convention Contractors, a Florida-based trade show contractor, also signed a seven-year lease for 38,608 square feet at 719 Lakeview Loop Way.
CBRE’s Sean Ward and Ben Seybold represented the unidentified landlord.
Terms of the leases were not disclosed by CBRE but Seybold said the properties leased nearly “20% above the record-high average asking lease rate.”
“The tightness of the market coupled with rising demand is driving the steep climb in pricing,” he added.
Earlier this year, Ricoh Electronics left its longtime home in Tustin for a new headquarters in Rialto in San Bernardino County. In April, Nissei America relocated its injection molding machinery to San Antonio, Texas, from Anaheim.
Florida pharma firm leases in Tustin
A Florida firm is putting down some roots in Orange County, too, this time in Tustin.
LGM Pharma, a Boca Raton-Fla.-based pharmaceutical manufacturing company, has leased a 33,488-square-foot warehouse at 2741-2745 Dow Ave. in Tustin, according to NAI/Merin Hunter Codman.
The company last summer acquired Irvine-based Nexgen Pharma Inc. and is leasing the Tustin building as it expands the combined firm.
Jeffrey A. Cebula with NAI/Merin Hunter Codman partnered with NAI Capital Commercial to complete the seven-year lease for LGM.
The landlord was represented by Cushman Wakefield. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

Clearwater Living said last year the project represents the first Catholic-based senior living community in Orange County. It will be open to people of every denomination.

Irvine-based R.D. Olson Construction’s 11th annual charity golf tournament raised more than $80,000 for Olive Crest, a nonprofit that works to prevent child abuse, and treat and educate at-risk children. The tournament was held at Tijeras Creek Golf Club in Rancho Santa Margarita.
San Clemente-based C2 Collaborative, a landscape architecture design firm, has earned a Grand Award across five leading categories and the Award of Merit in two others at the 2021 Gold Nugget Awards. The annual awards program recognizes firms that improve communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development.
The honors recognized C2’s role in developing Miralon Palm Springs, a project that converted a failed golf course into an “agrihood” community. The 309-acre community has 1,150 homes set in working olive and citrus groves, in addition to community gardens and walking trails.
Miralon is slated to open this summer 2021, with the club, fitness center, yoga studio, hub, café, pools and dog parks complete.
