Doheny Eye Institute Announces New Headquarters in Pasadena
Los Angeles (November 22, 2017) – Doheny Eye Institute, a top-ranked nonprofit organization proudly affiliated with UCLA Stein Eye Institute and dedicated to furthering the conservation, improvement and restoration of human eyesight since 1947, is pleased to announce the purchase of its new headquarters in Pasadena. The new 123,200-square foot 7-acre commercial property at 150 North Orange Grove Boulevard will be the new home for Doheny Eye Institute, one of the world’s most prestigious clinical vision research organizations.
Designed by the iconic architect group William L. Pereira & Associates, creators of the original Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) campus and the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, this LEED Silver -contemporary property, originally built in 1981 was the former headquarters of the Avery Dennison Corporation. The building, within walking distance to Old Pasadena, award-winning restaurants and shopping in the heart of downtown Pasadena, the Norton Simon Museum, the Pasadena Museum of History, and the Tournament of Roses will serve as the new home to Doheny’s vision research center, operating suites and clinical space.
“We are thrilled about our move into the new Pasadena campus,” said SriniVas R. Sadda, MD President & Chief Scientific Officer, Doheny Eye Institute. “The longstanding legacy of Doheny and historic Pasadena are a perfect match. We look forward to calling Pasadena home as we continue to further Doheny Eye Institute’s vision — to have the greatest impact on human eyesight by leading our field with groundbreaking research, superior education programs, and the best eye care in the world.”
The Pasadena property sold for just under $50 million. Doheny will develop plans for the design of the interior renovations as soon as possible. “The new campus is contemporary, welcoming and fresh, and we are excited to provide this experience to the faculty, staff, patients and visitors,” adds Marissa Goldberg, Doheny’s Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer. “City of Pasadena representatives have been very supportive and helpful at every step of the way in our search for our new property.”
