ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. – September 27, 2017 – Cushman & Wakefield has represented Grant Thornton LLP (Grant Thornton) in its signing a seven-year lease – allowing Grant Thornton to relocate and expand into 26,000 square feet of Class A space in Orange County’s prestigious MacArthur Court project, owned by Irvine Company.
Relocating from the Irvine area, Grant Thornton’s new coastal office will be positioned on the 15th and 16th floors of the 16-story tower at 4695 MacArthur Court, one of two high rises within the project.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Managing Directors Dan Fisk and Chon Kantikovit jointly represented Grant Thornton in the transaction.
“Grant Thornton’s Orange County office exhibited strong growth, resulting in an immediate need for additional space,” said Mr. Kantikovit. “Cushman & Wakefield partnered with Grant Thornton to evaluate potential expansion options within its current office campus, as well as additional locations across Orange County.”
Grant Thornton operates 60 offices across 30 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The firm’s Southern California practice, which also includes offices in Los Angeles and San Diego, has provided professional services for more than 40 years.
