First Street Napa Welcomes John Anthony Family of Wines as New Office Tenant in Early 2018
Premier Mixed-Use Development’s Office Space is More Than 75 Percent Leased
NAPA, Calif. (June 8, 2017) – First Street Napa, a 325,000-square-foot mixed-use development in the heart of Downtown Napa that will incorporate 45 retail shops and restaurants, new creative office space, and a 183-room Archer Hotel, announced today that John Anthony Family of Wines will be relocating and opening its new office headquarters within the project at 1300 First Street. The local, family-owned wine company—encompassing an impressive portfolio of brands including John Anthony Vineyards, JaM Cellars, and FARM Napa Valley—will occupy approximately 6,000 square feet with prime views of bustling First Street. Occupancy is slated for early 2018.
“The John Anthony Family of Wines business started in Napa as a vineyard management company in 1997. As we’ve grown, so has our commitment to the city,” said John Anthony Truchard, founder and CEO of John Anthony Family of Wines. “It’s important to build our offices on First Street Napa alongside the John Anthony Vineyards and JaM Cellars tasting rooms, as it provides a great sense of place, energy, and focus for the team. We’re looking forward to moving into our new, beautifully designed space and being central to downtown Napa’s exciting growth with new fashion and specialty retailers, restaurants, and Archer Hotel Napa.”
John Anthony Family of Wines will occupy the spacious second floor office space at 1300 First Street—neighboring the recently announced Pacific Union International and Silicon Valley Bank offices. John Anthony Truchard and family have a storied history within Napa’s winemaking scene and originally established a presence in Downtown Napa in 2011.
“Relocating John Anthony Family of Wines’ main office headquarters to the First Street Napa location is a great move for the company’s culture,” said Cathy D’Angelo Holmes of Coldwell Banker Commercial Brokers of the Valley who represented John Anthony Family of Wines. “Their goal is to attract new employees and offer current staff an office space that’s as exciting and dynamic as the company they are building. The 1300 First Street location met all of the company’s criteria for a workplace environment, and I know they’re looking forward to being situated in a lively, bustling neighborhood.”
The newly redeveloped 1300 First Street building will feature high ceilings, abundant natural light, modern lobbies, secure bicycle parking, convenient access to two adjacent parking garages, and 24-hour secured entry and on-site property management. The project’s National Registered Historic Gordon Building – located at 1136 First Street – will be available to lease beginning in spring 2018 with 9,849 square feet of Creative Class office space sitting atop new street retail.
“Since local businesses are incredibly important for Napa’s economy, we are pleased to add John Anthony Family of Wines and their growing brand to our First Street Napa community,” said Todd Zapolski, principal of Zapolski Real Estate, LLC.
First Street Napa is slated to open the first series of shops and restaurants in late 2017 and is owned and managed by Zapolski Real Estate, LLC and Trademark Property Company. The project recently announced additional retail, culinary, hospitality, and creative office space tenants, including: Archer Hotel Napa, a Maris Collective boutique, Lush, Compline Wine Bar, Silicon Valley Bank, Pacific Union International, Napa Valley Jewelers, Eiko’s Sushi, Charlie Palmer Steak, and Brown Estate.
