Offices in a converted El Segundo manufacturing building formerly occupied by aerospace giant Northrop Grumman Corp. will be rented by data service provider Teradata.
Ohio-based Teradata has agreed to rent a 1950s-era warehouse at 601 Nash St. that Northrop converted to executive offices more than a decade ago. Teradata will move there next year from a nearby 20-story tower built in the 1980s.
Teradata’s relocation from a traditional high-rise building to a free-standing one-story office building is part of a county-wide trend of corporate users moving toward more casual, collaborative atmospheres, real estate broker Scott Steuber of Cushman & Wakefield said.
"They’re trying to create a more creative work environment for employees," Steuber said.
The new facility will include a gym with locker rooms and an outdoor gathering space after Teradata finishes preparing the space. It already has such typical creative office features as an exposed bow truss ceiling and polished concrete floors. Northrop also installed a large backup power generator.
