Cerritos, CA - Green Office Space

Employment

Tenants in the Los Angeles metropolitan area are beginning to put the availability of energy-efficient, green office space at the top of their list when they look for space. Despite its small size, there is a larger percentage of green office space in Cerritos than in many neighboring Los Angeles County cities. Of the office buildings larger than 50,000 square feet in Cerritos, 33% are green office buildings, bringing over 465,000 square feet of green office space to the Cerritos commercial real estate market.

One example of a LEED-certified office building in Cerritos is the Cerritos Towne Center - 12898 Towne Center Drive. Located on 183rd Street just west of the Artesia Freeway, this office building was constructed back in 1993 and contributes nearly 81,000 square feet of LEED Gold-certified office space to the Cerritos office market.

Perhaps that fact that there is such a high percentage of green office space should come as no surprise, given that the Los Angeles metro area ranks 13th among the top 30 office markets in the U.S. for the percentage of LEED-certified, EPA Energy Star-rated, and green-certified office buildings. The 2017 National Green Building Adoption Index surveyed the top U.S. office markets and discovered that, since 2005, the amount of green office space has increased to 38% on average across these top office markets.
