Since August, four companies have leased or expanded at Hacienda West.

“The lease activity at Hacienda West within the past six months demonstrates that the East Bay real estate market, and notably Pleasanton, continues to improve. It is also evidence of the value and quality of Hacienda West as a sought-after business location,” said Don Little, senior vice president for Harsch Investment Properties in the Bay Area and head of development in three states. “We pride ourselves on offering quality space options and service that will attract innovative new tenants like IronPlanet, and are thrilled with the interest we’ve garnered at Hacienda West.”

IronPlanet, a leading online marketplace for used heavy equipment, entered into a six-year lease, commencing June 1, 2013. IronPlanet was represented by Whiff Collins, Justin Grilli and Ben Paul of Cassidy Turley in leasing negotiations. Harsch Investment Properties was represented by Brian Lagomarsino and Ted Helgans of Colliers International.

“After looking at several different office spaces and meeting with many management teams, it was clear that working with Harsch Investment Properties and moving to Hacienda West was the right choice for our move,” said Doug Feick, senior vice president of corporate development and general counsel for IronPlanet. “Not only will our new office be larger and modernly upgraded, but it will allow our whole team to be in one integrated suite with options for expansion. Throughout the process, Harsch was engaged and hands-on in terms of listening to and accommodating our needs and worked hard to find solutions, which mirrors the high-level of customer service we deliver to our clients.”
