PASADENA, CA—Cross Campus, a on-demand office co-working facility based in Santa Monica, is expanding to a new, second location in Pasadena. The new location will be located in the Pasadena Plaza property that Rising Realty and Silicon Valley tech entrepreneur David Sacks purchased in December 2013. Cross Campus will open in the new location later this year.
Cross Campus will occupy 16,000 square feet and three floors of the 60,771-square-foot, three-building property, which is located at 87 N. Raymond at Memorial Park Station. The location will be larger than the company’s current Santa Monica outpost. Cross Campus chose the Pasadena market because it is the center of the Los Angeles tech boom and within close proximity to major tech hubs, like Cal Tech and the NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab. The center will offer amenities such as business support services and member-to-member engagement.
The facility is aimed at providing a space for start-up companies to grow and work in a highly creative environment. Although Pasadena is a thriving tech community, this property in particular provided a space for Cross Campus to offer that experience to its customers. This move illustrates not only the growing and changing office environment, but also the strength in the start-up sector.
