Paul Komadina Komadina: “We believe being in one of the largest experiential shopping centers in California, with an elevator directly into our space, increases accessibility to our customers and allows people to come into our office at any time.”

SAN DIEGO—The relocation of the CBRE Group’s central San Diego office in UTC across the street to Westfield’s shopping center allows clients greater accessibility, more amenities for employees—and more, managing director Paul Komadina tells CBRE will occupy the entire 32,336-square-foot third floor of a newly developed building that is part of Westfield UTC’s ongoing expansion and revitalization. Located at the intersection of La Jolla Village Dr. and Genesee Ave., the building is situated as a primary entrance of the center and will include a concierge staff and valet service for CBRE employees and clients.

The new office is part of CBRE’s global “Workplace360” initiative, the company’s leading-edge approach to workplace strategy designed to promote flexibility, mobility and productivity through technology-enabled, 100% free-address and paperless offices. It will incorporate leading-edge technology, with dedicated space for Liquid Galaxy—state-of-the-art presentation technology that uses sophisticated mapping data to give panoramic, comprehensive property and market tours, complete with 3D building images and street views.
