New business centers in La Jolla are incorporating streamlined designs and leisure areas that aim to improve the experience of coming to work every day. In the process, developers are creating innovative workplace designs that help La Jolla businesses thrive and meet the needs of clientele before they even step inside.

Thoughtful and practical infrastructure is only going to become more common in future designs. Work center experience may have been on the back burner  before, but it’s getting executive attention in today’s business sector because it’s proving to be a viable method to boost productivity and revenues.

One La Jolla Center opened this month and is following suit. Distinctive marks of the innovative workspace trend infused with trademark San Diego influences abound in the center’s next generation work environment. The experience is designed to garner innovation, enhance performance and cultivate creativity. Some of the features Globe St. noted on a recent visit include:

  • A media wall providing round the clock updates
  • Surfboard storage space
  • On-site fitness center
  • Bistro 24 restaurant
  • Lounge
  • Full-service auto-detailing center
  • Covered outdoor WIFI enabled workspaces

Virtually all well-equipped business centers boast boardrooms and many have training rooms, but One La Jolla Center takes it to the next level with a restaurant, lounge and fitness center on-site. Such amenities cater to busy employees who amass extra hours in the office, but don’t want to skip meals or gym sessions.

The GSA released a report that focused on workplace innovation. They found that such strategies improve employee productivity and reduce costs. In fact, the GSA report found that implementation of such measures in all federal office spaces could enhance portfolio values to the tune of $39 billion annually. Some of the focus areas that enhanced workplace experiences included:

  • Effective technological tools
  • Storage Space
  • Outside views
  • Natural light
  • Visually appealing workspaces

Reimagined workspaces are gaining traction in La Jolla’s commercial real estate market and across the country. Fortune 500 corporations and academic institutions are adopting innovative measures because they lead to healthier indoor environments and enhanced brand images. Other key benefits included:

  • Improved recruitment and retention
  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Increased productivity

Standing desks and open office floor plans may or may not be the key to cultivating thriving workspaces, but years of data have proven that natural light and inviting indoor and outdoor spaces set a productive tone in the workplace. Those are a few of the key features One La Jolla Center possesses that create 21st century office spaces primed for enhanced business experiences.
