Kearny closed in November 2015 on a joint venture with Tribune Real Estate Holdings to redevelop the former LA Times printing plant and excess land in Costa Mesa. The 24 acre site is just north of the 405 off of Harbor Boulevard, 2.9 miles from John Wayne Airport in Orange County. Kearny was selected as the development partner through a RFP process run by Tribune.

The printing press building is unlike any other in Orange County – a steel frame structure with areas including 50′-clear high spaces, a 4′-high loading dock adjacent to one acre of land, both running the length of the building which uniquely allows for incomparable outdoor amenities, and features inside and outside of the building that are a testament to the authenticity of the building. Kearny plans a major transformation of the building into an exciting and vibrant creative office campus, taking advantage of the unique gifts of the building.

Costa Mesa is currently undergoing a General Plan update. Kearny is guiding this 24-acre site through the process that includes a zone change and increasing the allowable FAR.
