While so much has changed in 2021, some things remain constant. “Attracting and retaining top talent was a driving force defining office space needs pre-pandemic,” says Jake Stickel, Senior Vice President at CBRE. “That hasn’t changed. In fact, having the best people has become more important than ever.”
“My clients recognize that creating the future workplace, one that empowers a hybrid workforce, gives their companies an important competitive edge,” he says. Jake recently negotiated a 28K sq. ft. lease at Jamboree Center, which earned him the recognition of Broker of the Quarter. The workplace community in the heart of Irvine features indoor-outdoor workspaces, onsite dining and state-of-the-art fitness center, putting green, and a sports court.
Jamboree Center is part of the Airport Collection, seven distinctively modern and healthy workplace communities near John Wayne Airport and several major freeways in Orange County. Each of the workplaces in the Airport Collection offers everything companies need to succeed today: open-air workspaces, WiFi powered outdoor spaces with shade and comfortable seating, industry-leading ventilation systems, and leasing flexibility that aligns with each company’s needs.
These considerations are important as companies start returning to work, as Jake has seen through his clients.
“Preparing for the ‘next normal’ in the workplace is top of mind,” he says. “Discussions are centered around designing a workplace that promotes culture and collaboration while preserving wellness and flexibility.”
Throughout his career, Jake has negotiated some of the largest office space transitions with industry leaders in a variety of industries, including Google, Verizon, and Broadcom. He is considered one of the foremost office experts in Orange County.
We’re proud to partner with Jake and his clients for their continued success.
