Nova Academy

Nova Academy Early College High School, located in Santa Ana, California, was outgrowing its leased facility and needed a permanent home. Commercial real estate in Orange County is scarce, but the school was lucky to locate a suitable property located at 500 W Santa Ana Blvd in the downtown area of the incorporated City of Santa Ana, in Orange County, California. The property consists of a 1982-built (renovated in 2004), four-story, elevator-served, single tenant office building, with a total building area of 37,116 sq. ft. situated on a rectangular shaped, level, corner parcel with a total site area of 0.915 acres. On-site parking is available in a five- story parking structure with approximately 260 spaces. Hansberger & Klein, PLC successfully obtained a zoning exemption and secured an approximately $20,000,000 bond transaction to make major improvements to the facility, including unique seismic retrofits.
