MINNEAPOLIS (April 21, 2011) – Ryan Companies US, Inc. recently signed a lease amendment with CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) to expand their leased space at its Two MarketPointe office development in Bloomington, Minnesota. CBRE will expand to the 8th floor of Two MarketPointe increasing their total leased space to over 100,000 square feet in the building.
“As the leaders in Commercial Real Estate, we are creating an Accounting Center of Excellence at our Two Market Pointe location to service our American based clients,” said Patty Proshek, Senior Managing Director of Client Accounting Services for CB Richard Ellis. “As our business continues to grow we are anticipating 500+ accounting professionals under one roof in the very near future. We are committed to providing our employees with the highest quality space and feel that with the deli expansion and a new restaurant in the building our employee satisfaction and productivity will continue to rise.”
This addition to Two MarketPointe brings the building to 87% leased. “The Ryan project team has worked intensely to deliver this office space expansion solution for CBRE,” said Rick Collins, Vice President of Development for Ryan. “To have this top tier firm of commercial real estate professionals select our project is a huge endorsement for the office product our team has created at this location,” added Collins. The Two MarketPointe building was pre-certified LEED Gold and is noted for its underfloor air delivery system (UFAD) and floor-to-ceiling glass. Ryan Companies US, Inc. designed, constructed and owns the building. This project was granted two Minneapolis/Saint Paul Business Journal “Best in Real Estate” awards when it opened – The Best Overall New Project and The Best Green Building.
