4200 Von Karman, Newport Beach, CA
The original structure at 4200 Von Karman was a single-story, 15 feet high, glass curtain wall building which was known at the “Leasing Pavilion” for the office buildings being developed in Koll Center Newport. This entire area was planned and developed by Don Koll, one of the legendary early office developers in Orange County.
MDC purchased the site in 2004 and began planning a very unique building which reflected the design vision of Bruce McDonald and Langdon and Wilson. The goal was to create a workplace which conveyed the feel of a “modern home” through thoughtful, precise architecture. The two-story building totals approximately 3,400 usable square feet with “Class-A” office construction qualities. Building architectural features include: approximately 20% poured in place natural finished concrete with precise detailing of “snap tie” accents and matching reveal lines, clear glass and white painted mullions which relate to the concrete reveal patterns and a 500 square foot “flow-through” patio which promotes the use of outdoor space behind the building.
