The 19th floor “penthouse level” of 111 W. Monroe St. in Downtown Phoenix is ready to welcome its new, high-tech tenant – courtesy of a seven-month, creative office build-out just completed this week by the Phoenix office of JLL. The new tenant is Integrate, a locally based, rapidly growing cloud marketing software and service provider.
JLL Executive Vice President Ryan Bartos represented Integrate last fall in lease negotiations that would relocate the software company from Scottsdale into its new Downtown Phoenix address at 111 W. Monroe St. The build out of the space was managed by JLL’s Project & Development Services group.
“Downtown wasn’t even a consideration when Integrate started this process, but the tremendous potential of this building – combined with the exciting restaurant, residential and high-tech tenant activity happening downtown –ultimately made this a very easy choice,” said Bartos.
Owned by Phoenix-based ViaWest Properties, 111 W. Monroe St. is located on the southwest corner of Monroe Street and First Avenue, in the heart of Downtown Phoenix. Its 14,000-square-foot, 19th floor penthouse level mixes mid-century interiors with modern touches that include 14-foot open ceilings, floorplates that can be built out as unobstructed collaborative spaces, and open north-south skyline views.
“This is exactly what Integrate was looking for – space with character but that could also be configured to support the efficiency and transparent culture of their company,” said JLL Vice President Derek Ruterman, who directed the Integrate tenant improvement project. “Features like direct line-of-sight from one end of the office to the other and a glass-walled conference room help to achieve this. There are no private offices, and elements like the purposeful use of their branded colors underscore the collaborative, mission-focused nature of the team.”
The first floor of 111 W. Monroe is occupied by local retailers and restaurants. Other on-site amenities include a yoga studio, free common area WiFi and mobile app/text valet service. The building has a 96-point walkability score, reflecting its close proximity to numerous area amenities including restaurants, retailers, entertainment, museums, other major office buildings, residential developments and Light Rail. The combination has attracted several additional high-tech tenants to 111 W. Monroe, including Galvanize, Gainsight, Allbound and Uber.
Integrate will move approximately 92 employees to its new location, with plans to continue to grow and develop its local staff.
