Real estate news: Massive, mixed-use Flight at Tustin Legacy campus readies for tenants

By anaheimsigns

The first phase of construction has wrapped at Flight at Tustin Legacy, a creative, mixed-use office campus near the blimp hangars, according to Suffolk, the builder.

The 870,000-square-foot project includes office spaces, a parking garage and a food hall in 11 buildings.

The campus was developed by Lincoln Property Co. and designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios and House & Robertson Architects.

The 12,000-square-foot Mess Hall Market has an array of restaurant options open for business including Slapfish, Big Parm, Saigon Kitchen, The Lost Bean and The Bar @ Flight. The Register’s food critic Brad Johnson recently visited the food hall, noting it opened in June but “the surrounding office towers are still zero percent occupied.”

Confirmed tenants for the office spaces, so far, include Work Well Win, a co-working space; Branded Online, an e-commerce provider; and Happy Money, a finance tech startup.

Oggi’s location sells in Garden Grove

A 6,500-square-foot Oggi’s Pizza & Brewery property at 12362 Chapman Ave. in Grove Garden has been sold to its franchisee for an undisclosed sum.

The property was sold by Valore Ventures, which bought four adjacent restaurants in January in Garden Grove.

“We found that the properties were better suited as individual parcels that could help satisfy local investor demand for strong assets,” said Kenny De Angelis. “With this restructuring, we were quickly able to place the Red Robin and Joe’s Crab Shack parcels with the ideal investors, and now this Oggi’s owner was able to buy his restaurant.”

Built between 2001 and 2008, the restaurants are part of a larger development that includes three high-rise hotels and a 2.78-acre parking lot owned by the hotels but reserved for restaurant use. Two hotel projects next door are slated to start construction later this year.

Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther of SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group represented Valore Ventures in the disposition.

The Outback Steakhouse restaurant remains available for acquisition.

The site is zoned for industrial and was previously occupied by Rockwell International Corp., a manufacturing conglomerate primarily involved in aircraft, space and defense industries.
