Indoor go-kart racing company K1 Speed signed a 50,275-square-foot, 10-year lease at 1709 Main St. in downtown San Diego.

K1, which has been located in the North County for about 10 years, is looking to capitalize on the revitalization efforts taking place in East Village, located near the Convention Center and Petco Park.

The building is owned by Young’s Market Company, a wine and spirit distribution company, and was previously used as its distribution warehouse until Young’s moved its operations to Miramar. Cresa was hired by Young’s to find a tenant for the vacant space; K1 agreed to terms and both parties will collaborate to improve the building to suit K1’s needs.
