Construction is expected to begin in November on the $13-million first phase of the Koll Co.'s Koll Savi Business Center in Yorba Linda.
The center, on 24 acres of the 200-acre Savi Ranch Business Park, represents the Koll Co.'s commitment to develop in the North Orange County area, according to Richard M. Ortwein, Koll division president.
The first phase will consist of six one- and two-story research-and-development buildings totaling 160,000 square feet, which will be offered for lease. The center will eventually total 3 million square feet and will include a 174-room Compri Hotel to be built by McCarthy Western Constructors Inc. and managed by Doubletree Inns Inc.
Situated at the Riverside Freeway and Weir Canyon Road, Savi Ranch Business Park, a development of Hillman Properties West Inc., has portions of land in both Anaheim and Yorba Linda. The park already has 750,000 square feet of buildings under construction. Among the developers active there, besides the Koll Co., are O'Donnell Brigham & Partners/Southern Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and Pacesetter Business Properties.
