SBC Services has leased a 150,000-square-foot industrial telecom property in Irvine, Calif., for 10 years in a deal valued at $27 million, or $18/sf annually.

SBC, a San Antonio-based telecom company, leased the property at 2681 Kelvin Ave. from ISCO-Irvine North of Los Angeles. ISCO-Irvine North bought the property last year and renovated it for telecom use.

Byron Ward and Scott Read of Grubb & Ellis Co. in Newport Beach, Calif., brokered the transaction.

The deal seems to support the intense investment into Southern California telecom property conversions – especially in the tech-heavy submarkets comprising the emerging area that has been dubbed "Digital Coast."

Hardly two months ago, an opportunistic investment fund managed by Boston's Beacon Capital Partners purchased an 118,000-sf industrial building in Irvine for $15.4 million, or about $130/sf, with plans to convert it into a telecom facility.

That price represents the highest ever paid for an Orange County industrial property on a per-sf basis.
