Anecdotal evidence of the steady strong demand for office space in San Diego comes with word that the Irvine Co. has signed leases with five new companies to take up a combined 26,000 square feet of space in its Centerside office tower complex in Mission Valley.

Casey Brown Co. also has singed new leases with six companies at Old Town Plaza, a 65,000 square foot office park that the company spent $3 million renovating in 2018.

Centerside is comprised of side-by-side office towers at 3111 and 3131 Camino del Rio N. along Interstate 8.
