Newmark announces it has completed a 39,650-square-foot office lease with outdoor apparel company 5.11, Inc. at CANVAS, a creative office campus situated in the heart of Costa Mesa, California. Relocating from its current headquarters in Irvine, 5.11, Inc. is a retail brand offering purpose-built technical apparel, footwear and gear.

“At 5.11, we are innovators who make purpose-built apparel, footwear and gear for life’s most demanding missions,” said 5.11, Inc.’s CEO, Francisco J. Morales. “As innovators, we are embracing the opportunity for our people to work from anywhere – hence, the importance of having an inspiring space to collaborate in-person. Our new offices at CANVAS will be the center of our global innovation engine where we will come together physically and virtually to continue to innovate for our professional and everyday consumers.”

Recently repositioned by EQ Office, CANVAS provides dynamic experiences for companies at various stages of their business. Located adjacent to the SOBECA (South Bristol Entertainment Culture and Arts) neighborhood and totaling nearly 550,000 square feet, the campus provides tenants with access to wellness amenities, indoor and outdoor workspaces, and an arts and culture scene that celebrates the local community. CANVAS offers a range of leasing options to meet the needs of every business. From short-term leases and co-working space to move-in-ready suites and custom blocks of office with full build-out capabilities

“CANVAS is a thriving mixture of culture and community, and as a purpose-driven brand, 5.11 is a natural fit to join our creative campus,” said Brendan McCracken, SVP, Portfolio Director at EQ Office. “We are looking forward to this partnership and sharing this incredible work environment that will support 5.11’s continued growth and momentum for years to come.”

Newmark Executive Managing Director Jay Nugent, Senior Managing Director Drew Netherton and Managing Directors Richard Sung and Andrew Robben, represented the asset owner, EQ Office. Louis Tomaselli and Scott Wetzel with Jones Lang LaSalle represented 5.11, Inc.

“We are pleased to bring 5.11, Inc. to this one-of-a-kind office concept,” said Nugent. “We see this project as a unique canvas, where each tenant can shape their culture to attract quality talent. 5.11 is one of the country’s fastest growing outdoor apparel brands, and we believe they will be a perfect match with all that CANVAS has to offer.”
