Christine Takara Takara: “These are not just tiny, blossoming companies—they’ve been around for a few years and have outgrown their space.”

SAN DIEGO—Companies are moving from the suburbs to offices in Downtown San Diego, EMMES Realty Services of California’s customer-service manager Christine Takara tells GlobeSt.com. What’s more, urban office-building amenities like modern gyms, restaurants and other retail stores can contribute not only to that building’s tenants, but to residents, employees and visitors to the Downtown market. As a representative of the second-largest commercial-office landlord in Downtown San Diego, next to the Irvine Co., Takara tells us exclusively what her firm has seen in this “urban migration” and why innovation-based companies are drawn to Downtown and the firm’s 707 Broadway building.
