SANTA ANA, CA-The publicly held First American Corp., one of the country’s largest providers of database information, will expand its corporate campus by 278,000 sf in response to the rapid growth of its business. First American, which gathers and markets data ranging from title, mortgage and property information to credit and background screening information, already occupies about 210,000 sf at the headquarters site at Main Street and MacArthur Boulevard, where it employs 900 workers. First American recently completed framing of the first of three new office buildings that will comprise the 278,000 sf of new space, which is being developed for First American by Lutzky Associates Development LP of Costa Mesa. The designer of the project is Robert R. Coffee Architects + Associates of Corona del Mar, with Lusardi Construction Co. of San Marcos as general contractor. The 278,000 sf of new space will accommodate more than 1,000 additional employees at the First American campus. Once the new buildings are completed, the database company will occupy approximately 489,000 sf of office space spread over nearly 32 acres. The new campus layout will comprise six buildings, including a data center. Future phases could accommodate additional building for a potential campus size more than one million sf. The campus will become the new home for several First American operations including, First American Trust, Data Trace and First American Real Estate Solutions. The First American Corp. is a Fortune 500 company with 2003 revenue of $6.2 billion that traces its history to 1889.
