One of Kane’s first move management clients from 20 years ago, moved again this weekend. Twenty years ago this law firm moved from Pasadena to Glendale. This weekend they moved from Glendale back to Pasadena. Due to the pandemic, many staff work part-time from home, so they downsized from 10,000 sqft to 3700 sqft saving lots of money on rent. It’s become the norm seeing firms downsizing. This is the first day in the office unpacking and settling in.
Kane Commercial Real Estate was asked to represent a client that is looking to lease industrial space (warehouse) in Gardena. Highlights include 4,200 sq. ft. of warehouse and office space. Photos below show the exterior and entrance to the warehouse.
On a relocation job walk bid, Barb got to actually see real “Emmy Statues” in the lobby of the building toured! Woohoo! We really do live in Hollywood!
Kane donates on a regular basis, particularly to children and animal organizations. This month we donated to the Boys and Girls Club of America, No Kid Hungry and to Ukraine! Giving to others in need fills our heart with joy!
We are excited to have a new client, Allen Matkins Law Firm, in Irvine, California. Kane has been hired to help them relocate into new office space. They need to sell-donate-liquidate the furniture you see below (and more).. There are 50+ offices of furniture similar to what you see here. If you know of anyone needing office furniture that is in great condition, please let us know. Timing is end of May 2022.
Barney (move assistant with Kane) and Barbara were at our client MedPOINT in Sherman Oaks on Monday, March 14, readying them for internal moves as their larger space finishes construction. Move signs hung and many other details in the “works”.
As many organizations downsize, there has become a huge excess of office furniture. Many of the liquidators or mover warehouses that use to take office furniture are filling up. Additional time is needed to coordinate what to do with used office furniture so that it doesn’t end up in the LA Dump. Kane works with movers, liquidators, non-profits and donation sites like Habitat for Humanity, etc. in trying to avoid used furniture getting trashed. This takes time and money and we do what we can given the timing involved. Get in touch with us early so we can help.
Barbara volunteered this year to “Chair” a Local networking group called Highrise. Highrise is a networking group made up of people from all over the country in different types of careers. Each area or region of the country has its own local group. “Beach Cities” is the local group that Barbara chairs the 2nd Tuesday of every month. It’s a great group of people with various career backgrounds who are stellar in their field! Barbara says “Getting to know professional people in different career areas has been such a great learning experience. It’s another group of people that you become friends with and learn more about their industries with the hope of being able to refer them business. That’s not all – they become confidents with great ideas when you have a problem or issue with your career and they also become friends. I am honored to be serving as Chair to this wonderful group and look forward to more face to face meetings in 2022. We have been meeting on Zoom primarily due to pandemic – however – we are hopeful to meet more face to face in 2022!”
Barb was at Redondo Beach this weekend and snapped a few shots of the peaceful ending to a busy work week and the beginning of a busy Holiday week. Take time out to enjoy nature this coming week and just “be”. There is no bigger gift than the natural beauty of our oceans. Happy Holiday Ahead!
Kane Consulting was hired to manage the relocation and construction management of MedPOINT Management. MedPOINT moved from Woodland Hills to Sherman Oaks over the Thanksgiving Holiday, so there was no rest for the Kane Team during this holiday! We moved about 65 onsite staff, but items from over 150 personnel that were working from home had to be moved as well; this included furniture, computers, etc. We had the help of our “A” team partners from Beverly Hills Transfer Moving and Innervisions on the IT side. It was a successful move that included a day of pre-moves and a day of post moves and also 3 days of decommissioning the old site in Woodland Hills. All in all a very busy Thanksgiving holiday! The project continues into late January while 2/3 of the space is still under construction. So another move is on the horizon for the staff in January when the entire space gets completed.
