Savills Studley Represents Accruent in Expansion to New Orleans

27 December 2018

Savills Studley today announced the successful completion of a 22,594-square-foot lease for Accruent’s first regional office in New Orleans. The company will occupy the entire sixth floor of 400 Poydras Tower, a 32-story, Class A office building in the city’s Central Business District. The new offices will house approximately 150 employees, with move-in scheduled for the first quarter of 2019.

“New Orleans is one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the country, and it was imperative for our company to have a presence here,” said Kirk Orgeldinger, CFO of Accruent. “The area has an outstanding university system, an affordable cost of living, and a vibrant and authentic culture. These attributes support our focus on designing an exceptional employee experience, and make it great base from which to attract talent and serve our clients.”

Headquartered in Austin, Texas, Accruent is the leading provider of physical resource management solutions and has 29 offices around the world.

Marcus Arredondo of Savills Studley represented the tenant in the long-term transaction, along with Jordon Johnson of Beau Box Commercial Real Estate.

Arredondo said: “After an extensive analysis of the marketplace, we determined that 400 Poydras was best suited to Accruent’s needs. Most significantly, the opportunity accommodates all employees on a single, dedicated floor. This facilitates the collaboration and interaction essential to the company’s operating philosophy. Additionally, competitive transaction terms build in lease flexibility, including options to expand or contract as needed, and provide for monument signage.”

Owned by an affiliate of Hertz Investment Group, 400 Poydras Tower is a prominent 606,000-square-foot office tower, strategically located in the city center and within walking distance of cultural, retail and hospitality amenities. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, the façade is clad in black granite, with insulated glass set into black aluminum framing. The building plaza features the sculpture “Painted Trio,” by Dr. Arthur Silverman, and the lobby area serves as a gallery for a collection of regional artwork. Onsite services include a bank, convenience store and sandwich shop.

Cres Gardner, CCIM and SIOR, of Beau Box Commercial Real Estate is the leasing agent for the building.
