 LOS ANGELES (September XX, 2018) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm based in Southern California, today announced construction is complete at The Mix at Harman Campus, a creative office redevelopment project located in the heart of the San Fernando Valley at 8500 Balboa Boulevard in Northridge, Calif. Ware Malcomb provided master planning, architecture, interior design, and branding services for the project.

Ware Malcomb’s design for the 44-acre mixed-use site combines office, retail, and restaurant space in a campus environment that promotes walkability and a connection between buildings. The property’s creative office space features collaborative indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, game areas, private patios, a food truck pavilion, on-site restaurants, brand-name retail services and a 30,000 square foot town square/central park. The Mix caters to the region’s expanding demand by entertainment and technology companies for amenity-rich campus-style office space, as well as traditional companies seeking a healthy, fun and collaborative work experience for their employees.

“We are honored to be a part of this exciting project that captures everything today’s companies and employees want in a workspace – both within and beyond the walls of their office,” said Radwan Madani, Principal of Ware Malcomb. “The Mix offers collaborative creative office space within a dynamic campus environment that combines the utmost in work, play and wellness.”

The Mix at Harman Campus has been constructed over three phases since first breaking ground in May 2016. Phases 1 and 2 centered on the renovation of an existing 200,000 square foot building into a multi-tenant creative office space. The transformation included a new exterior red brick, wood and metal entry façade, and a new interior circulation corridor for potential multi-tenant office or industrial tenants. This central corridor evokes the feeling of a modern gallery with open-air windows, high ceilings and natural light, while providing varied types of meeting/social spaces that promote a collaborative work environment. The existing brick and exposed structure of the building were intentionally left intact to create industrial design aesthetic, while new materials, colors and textures were used to highlight the major building and tenant entries.

In the recently completed Phase 3, two new single-story speculative retail and restaurant buildings totaling 17,000 square feet were constructed, along with Town Square Park, a central landscaped courtyard amenity space including bocce ball courts and outdoor dining areas.

The Mix at Harman Campus recently received a Gold Award for Best Mixed Use Project at the San Fernando Valley Business Journal’s 2018 Commercial Real Estate Awards.

The developer of The Mix at Harman Campus is Shubin Nadal Realty Investors. The General Contractor for Phase 1 of the project is Oltmans Construction Co. and the General Contractor for Phases 2 and 3 is RM Dalton Corporation.
