DirecTV Expanding El Segundo Headquarters

Satellite company DirecTV plans on doubling the size of their El Segundo headquarters, thanks to a new 15-plus year agreement with Kilroy Realty Corporation.

DirecTV currently leases 330,000 square feet of property on East Imperial Highway. Under the new agreement, Kilroy will rent 630,000 square feet to DirecTV with a potential expansion of up to 720,000 square feet.

“This transaction demonstrates the quality of our West Coast real estate portfolio and our organization’s ability to create a unique and compelling office environment for dynamic and expanding tenants,” said John Kilroy, Jr., president and chief executive officer of Kilroy Realty Corporation.
