EL SEGUNDO, CA — Looking to provide much needed opportunities for ownership of creative space to the innovators of Los Angeles, Continental Development Corporation, in partnership with Mar Ventures, Inc., has announced it will develop elevon, a new 15-building office campus encompassing approximately 210,000 square feet of creative office buildings for sale and 13,500 square feet of premier dining and retail space for lease located within Campus El Segundo, a dynamic 46.5 acre mixed-use property in the South Bay. 

elevon will commence construction in November 2013 with completion planned for fourth quarter 2014. Buildings for sale will range from 8,000 to 27,000 square feet with units as small as 2,000 square feet available.  There are also build-to-suit sites available for users of 50,000 square feet to 750,000 square feet.

Leading the marketing effort for elevon at Campus El Segundo are Jones Lang LaSalle Los Angeles team members Steve Solomon and Carl Muhlstein who will handle build-to-suit opportunities, and CBRE team members Bill Bloodgood and Bob Healey who will oversee building sales.

elevon helps companies look to the future while embracing El Segundo’s storied past,” said Bill Bloodgood.  “It’s the highest quality for-sale development ever built in Southern California.”
