SAN DIEGO, Calif., November 6, 2018 – Curology, a San Francisco-based custom skin care company, is expanding its presence in San Diego to 54,232 square feet at a newly renovated office building at 5717 Pacific Center in Sorrento Mesa, which is owned by Montana Avenue Capital Partners. Curology is relocating its local offices from UTC to accommodate the rapid growth of the company over the last five years, and will be nearly tripling in size with this new lease.
Bill Cavanagh and Mike Novkov with Cushman & Wakefield’s San Diego office represented the landlord in the transaction. Cushman & Wakefield’s Casey Sterk together with Tom van Betten of Matter Real Estate represented the tenant.
Montana Avenue Capital recently acquired the property as a vacant building and completed a significant renovation of the project to position the building as a first class creative office project. The renovation included updating the look and feel of the building exterior and adding some creative indoor/outdoor work areas.
Bill Cavanagh, Managing Director with Cushman & Wakefield’s Office Division, said, “5717 Pacific Center was repositioned with enhanced amenities to create an environment to meet the demands of San Diego companies looking to create a culture and atmosphere that enhances the success of their business.”
David Lortscher, CEO of Curology, said, “We could not be more excited to move into 5717 Pacific Center. It is a beautiful space that perfectly fits our needs and provides our team with a vibrant, bright and creative office environment. It will allow us to not only retain but attract new talent.”
