IRVINE, CA-Delphi Automotive Systems has signed a five-year lease for an R&D building at 1 Vanderbilt in the Irvine Spectrum in a deal with landlord Western States Technologies Inc. The 25,665-sf building will serve as an industrial and corporate facility for Delphi, according to Todd Miller, VP of Western States Technologies.

Troy, MI-based Delphi is a manufacturer and distributor of mobile electronics, transportation components and systems technology for the automotive industry. The company plans to use its new Irvine Spectrum facility for various R&D purposes, including the development of automotive prototype parts.

Los Angeles-based Western States Technologies was represented in the $2 million transaction by Trent Walker and Mark Weeks of Voit Commercial in Irvine. Delphi was represented by Steven Golubchik of the Los Angeles office of Jones Lang LaSalle.

Miller comments that the Delphi lease illustrates the popularity of the Irvine Spectrum with companies involved in R&D activities. Western States Technologies owns 11 office and industrial properties in the Irvine Spectrum. Overall, the company owns 15 properties in Irvine, part of a portfolio totaling more than one million sf in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura and San Diego counties.

The Delphi transaction was one of a number of industrial and R&D leases signed in Irvine lately, including one in which Isotis Orthobiologics Inc. signed a five-year, $2.9 million deal for a 43,538-sf property at 2-A Goodyear.

Walker and Sam Olmstead of Voit’s Irvine office represented the landlord, New Goodyear Ltd., with Greg Haly and Chip Wright of CB Richard Ellis representing Isotis Orthobiologics.
