SAN DIEGO-Lockheed Martin Tactical Systems has signed a deal to lease all 158,000 sf of space at Opus West’s new Horizon Tech Center @ Scripps Ranch, a development comprising three office and R&D buildings that is under way at the Scripps Ranch Business Park and is scheduled for completion in February 2009. Lockheed Martin will move its regional operations from nearby Kearny Mesa once Opus completes the 11.3-acre Horizon Tech Center, a LEED Silver certified project that is Opus West’s first LEED-certified project in Southern California.

Denny Beres, vice president of Lockheed Martin’s Tactical Systems San Diego facility, says that the new Horizon Tech Center location will allow the defense and technology firm to expand its operations, remain close to its customers and help to meet Lockheed’s corporate initiative for sustainable and energy efficient work environments. Situated on 11.3 acres on the highest parcel within the Scripps Ranch Business Park, Horizon Tech Center will join approximately 23 million sf of LEED-certified product Opus has completed or has in the development pipeline throughout the country.

The project site is close to Interstate 15 between State Route 56 and State Route 163. When Opus announced the project, it said that each of the Horizon Tech Center buildings would be designed to accommodate one to two corporate tenants and that the trio of structures would also be designed to function as a campus for a single major firm, as it will with the Tactical Systems unit of Bethesda, MD-based Lockheed.

Designed by Opus Architecture & Engineering in conjunction with RJC Architects, Horizon Tech Center will deliver energy consumption that is 14% less than a non-LEED-certified building and water consumption that is 30% less than standard. Landscaping, by Ridge Landscape Architects of Oceanside, CA, exceeds the LEED landscaping requirement by 300%.

Mike Glavin and Jay Alexander of Colliers, in conjunction with Jones Lang LaSalle, represented Lockheed Martin in the lease. Chuck Wasker, Jay Alexander and Ryan Grove of Colliers International’s San Diego office represented Opus West. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.
