RAF Pacifica Group’s lift—San Diego’s first-ever creative mixed-use ground-up development—has contracted its first tenant. Ezoic, an artificial-intelligence platform for publishers, pre-leased 19,620 square feet at the brand-new development in Carlsbad, Calif, which broke ground in September 2017. The company will occupy Building A’s second floor and additional office space in Building B.

Located at 6023 Innovation Way, Building A will consist of two full-floors of creative-office spaces totaling 34,660 square feet, while Building B—located at 6021 Innovation Way—totals 18,446 square feet, comprising 8,496 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space and 9,950 square feet of second-floor creative office space. The project also features a multi-purpose lawn, outdoor barbecue areas, fire-room lounge, outdoor meeting hubs, an amphitheater, rooftop decks and planned onsite high-end restaurants.

Executive Managing Director Aric Starck of Cushman & Wakefield’s San Diego offices represented the landlord, while Director Steven Field represented the tenant in the negotiations.

“Beyond its location in one of Southern California’s most appealing live-work-play communities, lift provides a creative vibe that today’s employees seek. This new innovative upscale project looks to integrate a creative office environment with high-end restaurants-eateries and an abundance of amenities to attract and retain talent,” said Starck in prepared remarks.

Located in the master-planned community of Bressi Ranch, lift is centrally located in Coastal North County. Bressi Ranch Village Center and The Square at Bressi Ranch are both located nearby. Upon completion, lift will consist of two Class A, energy-efficient, loft-style buildings totaling 53,106 square feet spread across a 4.4-acre site. The project is slated for completion in the second quarter of 2018.
