Local firm delivers new, Class A office buildings at global defense and transportation company’s campus in San Diego’s Kearny Mesa area
San Diego CA— Cisterra Development, a San Diego-based office, technology, residential and mixed-use real estate development firm, has completed the development of a two-building, Class A corporate headquarters at Cubic Corporation’s campus in San Diego.
“We are excited that most of our San Diego Cubes will be located on one campus, further enhancing our One Cubic culture which focuses on teamwork and collaboration,” said Bradley H. Feldmann, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cubic Corporation. “Cisterra Development was a vital partner in creating our new headquarters that will allow for continued growth and strengthening of our teams.”
Cubic Corporation considered several options for the development of a new headquarters, including options outside of San Diego. Ultimately, Cubic Corporation chose to consolidate two separate office campuses into a new, single campus with Cisterra Development as the company’s development partner. Cisterra Development delivered two new three-story, buildings that total 250,000 square feet with the entire campus now able to accommodate 1,500 employees.
“We are proud to have collaborated with Cubic Corporation on the creation of a new headquarters that befits a world-class company, aligning their corporate values with their real estate needs,” said Steven Black, Founder and Chairman of Cisterra Development. “With our firm’s extensive experience creating forward-thinking office spaces for some of San Diego’s leading companies, this build-to-suit effort was completed under-budget and ahead of schedule.”
Centrally located at 9233 Balboa Ave in San Diego’s Kearny Mesa area, the LEED Silver-certified buildings include energy efficient lighting, solar panels across the 687-space parking facility and electric vehicle charging stations. The campus also includes numerous meeting and outdoor gathering places, a full-service café, state-of-the-art fitness center and a basketball court.
Including this project, Cisterra Development’s team has created more than 15 million square feet of best-in-class projects ranging from high-rise urban mixed-use projects to biotechnology and research facilities to intermodal rail-served industrial, to traditional multifamily. The project team for the total $100 million build-to-suit headquarters for Cubic Corporation also included Whiting-Turner as the General Contractor and Ware Malcomb as the Architect.
