Spectrum Terrace

Spectrum Terrace is the latest addition to an iconic master plan that is transforming Irvine Spectrum into an integrated live/work community for the City of Irvine.

The 1.1-million-square-foot campus, completed in three phases, includes nine four-story buildings set in a terraced landscape that accommodates the site’s gently sloping topography. Amenities at the heart of each complex, including a multipurpose event space, dining pavilion, and fitness center, are seamlessly integrated with an array of landscape features. The result is a richly textured indoor-outdoor environment that fosters social interaction while serving the needs of both the immediate office community and the rapidly evolving live/work components of the greater Irvine Spectrum area.

Surface parking at three cars per 1,000 gsf is integrated within the overall landscape concept to transform a region once defined by the automobile into a pedestrian-friendly environment.
