MANHATTAN BEACH, CA—True Religion Apparel ismoving its corporate headquarters to Manhattan Beach, CA. The denimdesigner and manufacturer has signed a 72,246-square-foot officelease in a three-story building with ContinentalDevelopment Corp.


This is quite a move considering that True Religion'sheadquarters was formerly in the City of Vernon, CA. The moveillustrates the highly talked-about office migration to the SouthBay area. This year alone, office leasing in the South Bay marketis up 6.5% over the previous year with an absorption rate of 1.2million square feet. As a result, many developers and owners areeither renovating existing office campuses or developing ground-upspaces, including Continental Development Corp. The developer haspartnered with Mar Ventures to buildthe elevon campus in El Segundo. The project iswill have 15 buildings upon completion in early 2015.


Located at 1888 Rosecrans Avenue in Manhattan Beach, theproperty is a freestanding building and True Religion will occupythe full space. The company plans to renovate the building toaccommodate its needs.
