Embracing the Future While Preserving the Past

In business, the fast-growing growing M Corp helps its clients modernize their technology systems.

In choosing a new headquarters, M Corp is following the same practice: modernizing a century-old building for the 21st century.

M Corp bought the Regis Building, a landmark mixed-use building a block from the state Capitol and in the center of the revitalized K Street mall, late last year as part of a local partnership.

Now the building, considered an architecture gem in downtown Sacramento, is getting ready for its new owners and tenant. M Corp, a business analytics and legacy technology migration firm, is adding eye-catching interior amenities and high-tech conveniences for its new headquarters.

The company will move into the top floor of the five-level building during the next several weeks, says Alex Castro, one of the three founding partners of M Corp.

The building, at the southwest corner of 11th and K streets, is across the way from the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, in the middle of restaurant row, parking garages and next to a light-rail stop. The central location and the renaissance of the K Street mall were a huge influence on the purchase, Castro says.

The building allows M Corp to expand and meet the needs of its clients and employees. The Regis Building is a few blocks from several clients, including the Employment Development Department and the State Controller’s Office.

The 27,000-square-foot building was the former Regis Hotel. A previous group converted the hotel into a mixed-use building about 30 years ago. Ambrosia Café will continue to anchor the ground floor, while many government affairs firms lease the office space.
