Stream Realty has leased 52,906 square feet in the last 60 days at the Tustin Financial Plaza located at 17772-17862 East 17th Street, boosting occupancy rates to 95 percent.
"Stream Realty has done an outstanding job the past three years in marketing Tustin Financial Plaza," said John P. Drachman, vice president at Greenlaw Partners, the owner of the building. "Their combination of professionalism, hard work and excellent broker relationships was key to re-stabilizing the project. We believe our partnership was critical in achieving the leasing success at the project in a tough market."
Stream Realty elevated the property from 45 percent to 95 percent leased in three years. Occupancy rates at the Tustin Financial Plaza are the highest they have been since 2006. The local submarket has an overall occupancy rate of 86 percent across the 113 Class A and B properties, accounting for 3.7 million square feet of office space.
"The recent transactions at Tustin Financial Plaza show the demand of strategically located, quality office environments that are within walking distance of retail amenities and services," said Mike Adams, senior associate at Stream Realty Partners. "We anticipate that the leasing fundamentals will continue to improve and owners with good product that are well located will start pushing rates and decreasing concessions."
The Tustin Financial Plaza is a 177,073-square-foot, five-building office complex centrally located in Orange County that was built in 1979 and renovated in 2007. The complex offers an unmatched amenity base within walking distance to banks, grocery stores, restaurants, coffee shops and more.
