RAF Pacifica Instigates Creative Office Demand in Carlsbad

Known as in•sti•gate, the project aims to add the first injection of creative office space to North San Diego County.

San Diego—The Carlsbad submarket is set to get its first creative office campus development following the announcement that RAF Pacifica Group has acquired a significant plot of land in North San Diego County. The company acquired the site from Cruzan for a total consideration of $4.8 million, with both parties being represented by Arik Starck of Cushman & Wakefield.

Located at the intersection of Palomar Airport Road and Innovation Way in Carlsbad, Calif., the 4.4-acre site will house a brand new project. Known as in•sti•gate, the project will offer around 50,000 square feet of new creative office space with high-end amenities, an onsite upscale dining spot, open exposed HVAC, outdoor BBQ areas and a communal quad atmosphere. Other features at the loft-style building include Clam shell glass walls, rooftop decks, resort-style facilities and an on-site fitness center.

According to Starck, “Carlsbad companies largely consist of biotech, action sports and technology. These companies thrive on creativity and innovation and represent a new generation of office users. The atmosphere at in•sti•gate is a departure from the typical office building and will foster collaboration and novel ideas.” Groundbreaking at the site is expected for August of next year.
