[IMGCAP(1)]SANTA MONICA, CA-New office tenants have signed leases totaling 67,704 sf in separate deals here and in Northridge. The two include a 40,520-sf lease by film and television program distributor Genius Products in Santa Monica and a 27,184-sf deal in Northridge by ACE American Insurance at the West Valley Corporate Center.

Genius Products Inc. signed its deal with Los Angeles-based office REIT Maguire Properties Inc. in a move to consolidate and expand the offices of the fast growing Genius Products operations at 3301 Exposition Blvd., according to Trevor Belden, a principal in the Sherman Oaks office of Lee & Associates-LA North/Ventura. Belden represented Genius Products in the 10-year deal for a full floor in the newest addition to the 12-acre Lantana Entertainment Media Campus, with landlord Maguire represented internally by Debbie Tauberg and Joshua Worbel.

Belden says that the distributor of movies and television programming “needed to find a space that would accommodate its recent growth and desire to remain in a creative environment in Santa Monica.” The deal puts all of Genius’s operations under one roof in a brand new building specifically designed for companies like theirs, Belden adds.
