January 31, 2018— Irvine Company Office Properties today announced that Smashtech, a leading vertically-integrated marketing company that creates health and wellness brands, has leased the penthouse suite on the 33rd floor of Symphony Towers in Downtown San Diego’s Financial District.
The 22,000-square-foot lease more than quadruples Smashtech’s footprint, and offers employees of the three-year-old tech sensation panoramic views of Downtown San Diego.
The owners, Omar Imani and Anwar Husain, operate one of the region’s fastest growing companies with more than 60 employees and were named one of the best places to work by Inc. Magazine and San Diego Business Journal.
“Smashtech is already considered one of San Diego’s best companies to work for. Their new headquarters will cement their growing reputation as one of the region’s brightest and biggest new business stars,” said John Turner, Regional Vice President, Irvine Company Office Properties. “In just a few short years, they’ve grown from two owners to occupying some of San Diego’s most prestigious space.”
The company is scheduled to move in June 2018 from the Union Bank Building, also in Downtown San Diego.
“We’re beyond excited for our new home. We’re committed to growing even more in the coming year and providing our team with the best working environment,” said Anwar Husain, co-founder of Smashtech.
“This is going to be, hands down, one of the best offices in San Diego,” said co-founder Omar Imani, at the company’s “SmashGiving” party.
The announcement drew wild applause from employees, who watched the company’s founders sign the lease with their fingers, on their iPhones.
