Lincoln Property Company has been selected after a competitive RFP process as the new property manager for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC), the $188 million transportation hub that is currently transforming the skyline between Honda Center and Angel Stadium in Anaheim. Upon completion later this year, ARTIC will serve as a major transportation gateway that eventually incorporates a mixed-use center on the existing 16-acre site owned by the City of Anaheim.
Already, Lincoln has begun working closely with the City to determine policies and procedures, establish the vendor procurement schedule, and meet with key stakeholders in the community. The team has also begun leasing efforts for the 13,000 square feet of retail space within the center that will eventually include two full-service restaurants with liquor licenses, two inline retail spaces, and several interior and exterior retail kiosks.
As part of the overall contract, Lincoln will also be responsible for financial management, procurement and oversight of major third party service providers, IT systems administration, marketing, and special events in the public space, including opening day-related events towards the end of the year.
“We are honored to be selected as the management company for what promises to be one of the most significant transit centers in Southern California. With nearly 13 million square feet of space currently under management in the region and our base of sophisticated institutional clients, Lincoln is excited and well-positioned to execute on the City’s vision for the project,” said Matt Cady, of Lincoln Property Company. “We have already seen significant interest from well-regarded retailers who are eager to play a part in the success of this world-class facility.”
ARTIC will serve as a hub for Orange County and the region, where freeways, major arterial roads, bus routes and the rail system converge. On opening day, services will include Metrolink, Amtrak, OCTA bus, Anaheim Resort Transit, shuttles, taxis, and tour and charter buses. The building will include interior and exterior public plaza areas, public art, landscaping, amenities including electrical vehicle charging stations and bicycle access to the Santa Ana River Trail. ARTIC will also improve pedestrian access along Douglass Road and enhance pedestrian connections to Honda Center and Angel Stadium of Anaheim.
Designed with an eye to sustainability, ARTIC will be built to LEED Platinum standards, making it one of the first of its kind among transportation centers in California and nationally. Lincoln currently manages nearly 20 million square feet of LEED certified buildings nationwide.
“We are thrilled to bring on Lincoln Property Company as the management team for ARTIC. We were thoroughly impressed with Lincoln’s vision for this innovative transit hub and their highly regarded property management track record among institutional owners,” said Natalie Meeks, Anaheim’s Director of Public Works. “Lincoln has a strong presence across the Southern California region and a solid team of experienced professionals who will help further enhance the value of a truly world-class facility.”
