Foundation Health Systems Inc. in Woodland Hills has signed a six-year lease for more than 101,000 square feet at Warner Center Plaza III, pushing occupancy past 90% in the 585,000-square-foot skyscraper, which sat vacant for much of the 1990s as a result of the Southern California real estate slump.

The San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys continue to have the lowest office vacancy rate of any major market area in Southern California, according to a report by the real estate brokerage firm Grubb & Ellis. For all of 1995, the office vacancy rate in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys was 13.3%, the report says. That compares with an 18.5% vacancy rate for Los Angeles County and a 17.8% rate for all of Southern California.

Running a business in the San Fernando Valley became too much of a hassle and expense for Tom Evans, president of Windtree Financial. After eight years at Ventura and Sepulveda boulevards in Sherman Oaks, Evans and his mortgage banking company left the Valley two months ago for cheaper rent and more open space outside Los Angeles County. The Westlake Village Executive Office Park offered Windtree free parking and freedom from Los Angeles' 10% parking tax. That saves Windtree $1,400 a month.

Building the first new skyscraper in post-recession L.A. County took a little bit of nerve. Leasing it out is proving to be a lot of hard work. The new 24-story Glendale Plaza at 655 N. Central Ave. was built as a "speculative" project, without most leasing commitments in advance. The developers have rented almost 160,000 square feet of space since the building opened March 18. That leaves them another 370,000 square feet--roughly 17 stories--to fill.
