IRVINE, Calif., August 30, 2022 (Newswire.com) - In August 2022, Ergo Properties announced the sale of the Eureka Building Campus for an undisclosed amount located at 1621 Alton Parkway in Irvine, California. Ergo bought the vacant property in 2013 and transformed it into a multi-tenant creative campus with office space, venues, a cafe and event programming.
When they announced plans for the Eureka Building in 2013, it was to help catalyze the entrepreneurship community in Orange County. They did this by building a three-acre creative office campus that attracted companies from Silicon Valley and across California to relocate to Irvine. Called a haven for the geeky and creative by the OC Register, it housed their new coworking concept Eureka Hub as well as event venues that helped catalyze the community. Eureka hosted over 600 events since their doors opened in 2014, including Startup Grind, Tech in Motion, Cox Get Started, TCVN, OCTHH, OCTANe, Tech the Halls, Techtoberfest and our multi-day Eureka Fest.
After nine years of supporting the tech and creative community of Orange County, Eureka has expanded and evolved, bringing Eureka Hub to Canada with plans for greater expansion in Toronto and new Eureka Hub locations coming soon to California.
"It has been incredible to see how the startup and tech community has grown and the part Eureka got to play. From day one, we considered ourselves a resource in an area that was underserved and poised for growth," says Peter Polydor, President of Ergo Properties and Founder of Eureka.
In the years since Eureka Building opened, universities in the area like Chapman and UC Irvine have all made investments and created incredible spaces to support students and alumni creating the future in OC. Eureka Hub will continue to be part of the Southern California tech scene with new locations soon to be announced later this year.
