[IMGCAP(1)]TORRANCE, CA-Insurance firm Keenan & Associates has signed a 10-year lease valued at approximately $30 million to remain in 95,000 sf of office space on three floors at 2377 and 2355 Crenshaw Blvd., according to Cushman & Wakefield. According to Ted Simpson and Mark McGranahan of Cushman & Wakefield, who represented Kennan & Associates, the new lease continues a multi-decade relationship between the tenant and landlord Catellus Development Group, a Prologis company. The buildings at 2377 and 2355 Crenshaw Blvd. are in the Park Del Amo Campus.

Keenan & Associates sells and administers a variety of property/casualty insurance and financial services and products to institutional and corporate customers, primarily schools and hospitals. Simpson says that the new lease carries options to expand and contract that “will support Keenan’s business during these challenging market conditions.” He also notes that the landlord, who was represented by Bill Bloodgood of CB Richard Ellis, “worked to accommodate Keenan’s changing needs with several creative solutions.”

Keenan operates from a network of about 10 offices in California. Its products include risk management, workers’ compensation and employee benefits coverage. Its Keenan Healthcare Division provides consulting and brokerage services to healthcare organizations.
