  1. Silicon Beach is one of the hottest markets in the country, in part because landlords are paying attention to what tech tenants want. CBRE managing director Pat McRoskey, who’s in charge of leasing at the Water Garden in Santa Monica, says transformative changes are underway at the venue. An interior modernization was recently launched, and a second phase focused on the exterior, including a reimagining of the lake, an expansive sustainable landscape and enhanced water conservation, begins this April. The Water Garden is proactively responding to what tenants in the tech/media market need regarding the environment in which they want to work.

There’ll be amazing indoor and outdoor spaces where tenants’ employees will feel comfortable taking their laptops or holding meetings, and still be in the project. Both phases will be completed by spring 2016.
