The Los Angeles Chargers has put its headquarters in Costa Mesa, California, up for sublease as the NFL team prepares to move into new corporate space in El Segundo.
The Chargers are marketing roughly 101,000 square feet of office space at 3333 Susan St. in Orange County for sublease, according to marketing materials. The lease includes 160,000 square feet of grass fields used for football practice.
A tenant can sublease the space starting in August 2024, and the term expires in April 2028, the marketing materials state.
Photographs of the current Chargers headquarters show a spa, cafe, weight room, video room, office space and outdoor meeting space. The property also features showers, a massage room, a player's lounge, a draft room and a room reserved for scouting activities.
"Our facility in El Segundo is on schedule for completion in spring 2024," Phillip Ruhl, first vice president of CBRE and the broker of record for the Los Angeles Chargers, told CoStar News in an email. "As such, per the terms of our lease in Costa Mesa, we’re seeking candidates to sublease the current space there at the appropriate time and have seen interest."
In November 2021, the Los Angeles Chargers revealed the team leased a yet-to-be-built, roughly 145,000-square-foot office and training facility in El Segundo, California, minutes from where it plays its home games in the $5 billion SoFi Stadium.
The El Segundo facility is being developed by Continental Development and Mar Ventures. The future headquarters will feature three natural grass fields and a two-lane lap pool, a rooftop hospitality club, media center and full e-sports gaming and content studios.
The Chargers leased the Susan Street space in January 2017 as the team decamped from San Diego to Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The 9.7 million-square-foot Costa Mesa office market has an average rent of $32.58 per square foot, above the Orange County office market average of $31.49 per square foot. The market's vacancy rate is 14.5%, higher than the Orange County average of 12.6%.
The Chargers finished the regular National Football League season with a 10-7 record. The team faces the Jacksonville Jaguars on Jan. 14 in the opening round of the NFL playoffs.
