"We are very pleased with the leasing activity we saw in the fourth quarter of 2013 for Empire Towers," said Phil Woodford, Senior Vice President of CBRE, who was the lead broker on the project. "The Inland Empire saw 279,288 square feet of positive net absorption last quarter and vacancy decreased for the second quarter in a row."

Empire Towers offers a broad range of space sizes and configurations in its four buildings and includes a nine-story tower, making it the tallest office building the Ontario submarket.
