A $25M renovation of one of Long Beach's iconic office buildings is already paying off. California Resources Corp. is the latest company to sign a lease for office space at One World Trade Center, better known as 1WTC.

The oil and natural gas company will occupy 72K SF of office space at the downtown Long Beach property. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

JLL’s Jason Fine, Steve Solomon and Kristen Bowman represented 1WTC. Newmark Knight Frank’s Craig Kish represented California Resources Corp.

With the lease, 1WTC has now completed 185,760 SF of lease transactions since a JV of Stillwater Investment Group, Greenlaw Partners and affiliates of Walton Street Capital acquired the property in 2015.
