Sprouts moving HQ to North Phoenix

Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (Nasdaq:SFM), one of the fastest growing retailers in the country, today announced it will be moving to a new corporate office to accommodate the company’s growth. The new headquarters at The Offices on High Street (formerly known as CityNorth) will be located at 5455 E. High Street in Phoenix.

The company’s future 77,400 square foot corporate headquarters will include a small-footprint Sprouts grocery store unique to the facility. The store will offer convenient, affordable and healthy shopping to Sprouts team members, as well as High Street shoppers. The company anticipates moving to the new location in the spring 2015.

“We are proud to be an Arizona-based company and are committed to the local community. Our new High Street office will allow for greater collaboration and engagement with team members and business partners; it also will better reflect the Sprouts brand and our commitment to sustainability,” said Doug Sanders, Sprouts President and CEO.

“Sprouts is a strong addition to our project and we are honored they chose High Street for their corporate headquarters,” said Leslie Himley, vice president of marketing and communications for the property. “This lease signing is a tremendous accomplishment for our team, one that will greatly benefit current and future tenants. Additionally, the 24/7 lifestyle of our mixed-use property makes the Sprouts grocery store a welcomed amenity.”

Sprouts currently has more than 175 stores in ten states. The company recently expanded to the Southeast and anticipates continued growth as consumer demand for healthy and affordable eating grows.

CORE Institute Opens 69K SF HQ Facility

On January 22, Councilwoman Thelda Williams, The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, City and community leaders, will join Phoenix-based orthopedic group The CORE Institute for its ribbon cutting and grand opening reception of its new national headquarters and its new North Phoenix Clinic at 5:30pm.

The new facility serves as The CORE Institute’s national headquarters as it continues to expand both locally and nationally, and includes a clinic with nearly 60 exam rooms and research center.  CBRE completed the 69,251-square-foot 15-year lease of the Union Hills Corporate Center office building located at 18444 N. 25th Ave. in Phoenix last March.  Construction of the facility upgrades were completed in December.  The company hopes to add as many as 750 new employees across the country within the next 24 months and the new location will help facilitate that growth.

“We’re very pleased that The CORE Institute has committed to stay within our City and grow its national presence with Phoenix proudly listed as its national headquarters,” said Greg Stanton, Mayor of the City of Phoenix.  “The CORE Institute is yet another example of the excellent business climate that Phoenix provides to companies as they grow both inside, and outside of Arizona.”

“We outgrew our existing 50,000-square-foot facilities but we knew that we wanted to keep our headquarters in Phoenix as we took the next steps to grow our company outside of Arizona,” said The CORE Institute Chairman and CEO David Jacofsky, MD.  “The Union Hills Corporate Center facility allows us the flexibility to add staff as necessary as we expand and implement our Excellence through Evidence® platform across the nation.”

“The CORE Institute is excited we have reached this milestone of expansion,” said Arizona Market President, Dr. John Brown. “Combining the clinical expertise will allow us to create a Center of Excellence, helping us achieve our future vision of continued growth and better serving those in need of our orthopedic services.”

188 Employees working at The CORE Institute facilities in North Phoenix, Central Phoenix, Administration, Physical Therapy, and Research Lab have all moved into one Center of Excellence.  A key factor in the building selection was that it allowed The CORE Institute room for expansion by taking additional square footage to add employees as it continues to grow.

Since The CORE Institute’s inception in 2005, it has expanded in Arizona from four providers to over 100 and cared for over 43,000 new patients in its Arizona clinics. Its growth has been built on a platform of evidence-based medicine and meticulous outcomes tracking managed by a proprietary IT platform.  The CORE Institute has cared for hundreds of thousands of patients, from all 50 states and eight countries.  The CORE Institute currently has locations Arizona and Michigan.

Union Hills Corporate Center is located at a full diamond interchange on the southeast corner of Interstate 17 and Union Hills Drive and one mile south of the Loop 101 freeway interchange.  Its proximity to Interstate 17 and the Loop 101 offer tenants access to the Northwest Valley labor market and an abundant supply of amenities in the neighboring residential areas. Ashworth Construction, Inc., was selected by The CORE Institute to perform tenancy construction for the newly renovated facility with interior design work performed by Archicon.

IO Expands into Asia Pacific Markets

IO, the Phoenix-based global leader in software-defined data centers, today launched its Asia Pacific operations with Singapore as regional headquarters. This initiative advances the company’s committed expansion strategy to serve its global customers in one of the fastest growing markets in the world.

IO chose Singapore to address customer demand for software-defined data centre technology in the Asia Pacific region. The Republic provides a robust partner ecosystem, business-friendly environment, global talent and advanced technology infrastructure that strongly position IO to meet the needs of the world’s most demanding clients.

At launch, IO has in place all the facets of the business – customers, technology innovation, ecosystem partners and talent – to position the company for regional success. As part of its long-term, strategic technology partnership with IO, Goldman Sachs is utilising the IO Intelligent Control platform at IO Singapore, the company’s first modular software-defined data centre outside North America.

Earlier this year, IO established a distribution partnership with Tractors Machinery International Pte. Ltd in Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei, and at the Singapore Innovation Forum in June, the company announced an engineering partnership with McLaren Applied Technology. IO has attracted top-caliber executive talent for its Asia Pacific operations, led by Adil Attlassy, Executive Leader, Global Operations of IO and Peter Goh, Group Leader, APAC of IO.

From its base in Singapore, IO will deliver Data Centre as a Service (DCaaS™), using the company’s software-defined data centre technology: IO.Anywhere® and IO.OS®. The IO Intelligent Control platform improves data centre agility, reliability, security and sustainability. It has achieved MAS Certified Green® certification, demonstrating ability to provide customers with highly-energy efficient and sustainable data centre infrastructure. IO DCaaS enables software-defined cloud deployments at any scale so customers deployonly the data centre capacity needed to support their business applications, while also having the agility to add more capacity quickly and without interruption to operations.

“We warmly welcome IO’s decision to expand its software-defined modular data centre business in Singapore. IO’s data centre and technology will add to the vibrancy of the infocomms ecosystem here, and reinforce Singapore’s position as a data management hub,” said Mr. Jayson Goh, Executive Director of Infocomms and Media of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB). “We are confident that IO will be able to leverage Singapore’s market connectivity, global talent and business-friendly environment to enhance the delivery of technology to its clients.”

“IO’s long-term commitment to the Asia Pacific markets and to Singapore is demonstrable by the significance of our presence in Singapore. In preparation for our launch, IO has developed a world-class team of people, critical regional ECOSYSTEM partnerships, a centre of excellence for innovation in sustainability and most significantly, the deployment of the IO Singapore software-defined data centre,” said George Slessman, IO Chief Executive Officer and Product Architect. “The incredible growth of Singapore and the region is awe-inspiring, and we are proud to be a part of this extraordinary opportunity and community.”

According to Forrester Research, clients in Asia Pacific face increased pressure to build and run their IT systems in a sustainable and green manner. Forrester has forecasted that data centre services growth in the region would more than double GDP growth from 2010 to 2015, at 23% CAGR, with demand fueled by a need for reliable and cleaner power, escalating real estate costs, and a desire to move from fixed to circulating capital operating models. Forrester’s research shows that more than half of Asia Pacific firms want to move from capital expenditures (capex) to an operational expenses model (opex), and that third-party data centre providers are able to provide cost savings to both the CIO (in terms of immediate savings in the IT budget) and the CEO/CFO of the business (in terms of decreased risk of downtime).
