Arup plans to relocate its Seattle office to roughly 25,000 square feet at the Second & Seneca Building. The global design and consulting firm is expanding from approximately 8,500 square feet at Millennium Tower.
Arup’s new long-term commitment spans the entire fourth floor at 1191 2nd Ave., which it plans to occupy toward the end of this year. The two-building property is owned by Rockwood Capital and Urban Renaissance Group, and includes a 445,000-square-foot Class A office tower (Safeco Center) and a 1960s-era 80,000-square-foot building (1101 Second Ave.).
The building’s downtown location and proximity to mass transit and the ferry terminal appealed to Arup, which seeks to build an identity location and open-concept, collaborative environment with a trendy industrial vibe.
Colliers International’s Tony Ford acted as advisor to the tenant. JLL’s JJ Shephard and Joe Gowan handle property leasing.
