IRVINE (March 10, 2016) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced the completion of the new corporate headquarters of Mark IV Capital Inc. located at 4450 MacArthur Boulevard in Newport Beach, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided architectural design services for the new two-story Class A office building. Mark IV Capital, a privately-held real estate investment and development firm, was the developer of the project, C.W. Driver was the General Contractor and H. Hendy Associates was the interior design firm.

The new steel-framed building includes 20,613 square feet of office space and a 9,142 square foot underground parking garage. Architectural features of the Euro-contemporary design include exposed steel columns, cream-colored travertine exterior walls, and a curtain wall made from champagne-colored anodized aluminum with clear Vistacool Atlantica glazing. A two-story structural glass entry lobby with a suspended mezzanine and walnut-trimmed floating staircase provides a striking entrance.

In addition to serving as the new headquarters of Mark IV Capital, 6,432 square feet of space is leased to TIAA-CREF, and 4,195 square feet of space is available for lease on the first floor. The new building provides a high quality office option for banks, brokerage firms, and other businesses looking to lease space in a highly visible Newport Beach location, conveniently located close to John Wayne airport in the heart of Orange County’s business center.

The project is currently pursuing LEED® NC Platinum certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Sustainable design features include operable windows with mechanical shades operated by a building management computer system, permeable site paving, water reducing landscape, and a highly energy efficient envelope. A solar panel energy system on the roof was also implemented.

“We are pleased to bring contemporary design and sustainability together in Mark IV Capital’s stunning new headquarters,” said Tom Myers, Principal of Ware Malcomb’s Commercial Architecture group. “This building not only fulfills Mark IV Capital’s vision for its corporate offices, it also sets a new standard in Orange County for form, functionality and design.”
