JLL Completes Regional Headquarters Lease at Park Place Promenade in Clearwater

Cyber security software firm Malwarebytes moves strategically to secure quality space in talent-rich market


CLEARWATER, FL, Sept. 1, 2015 – JLL (NYSE: JLL) announces the completion of a 14,817-square-foot office lease on behalf of Malwarebytes Corp., an industry-leading anti-malware and cyber security software company, for the company’s regional headquarters at the Park Place Promenade office park.  Located in Pinellas County, the office park is comprised of three single-story, Class A office buildings.

JLL Associate Brad Knop represented Malwarebytes Corp. in the transaction.  The company established its regional headquarters in Clearwater less than a year ago and is expanding as a result of the company’s rapid growth and volume of success.
 
“Park Place Promenade is presently being marketed for sale so we worked quickly to secure the last remaining vacancy in the park as new ownership will often re-evaluate rental rates,” said JLL’s Brad Knop. “We worked with Malwarebytes at an early stage to accommodate the company’s anticipated growth needs and were able to do so while locking in today’s market rates and without having to relocate.”

Currently occupying 5,465 square feet, Malwarebytes will expand and occupy a total of 14,817-square-feet between two buildings in Park Place Promenade located at 410 Park Place Blvd and 430 Park Place Blvd.

“We opened our regional headquarters in Clearwater last October and due to our company’s success, coupled with the quality labor pool in the Tampa Bay region, we are now expanding to meet our anticipated growth,” said Jason Saham, Head of Talent Acquisition for Malwarebytes Corp.  “JLL understood our needs and helped us secure space without having to relocate our office. The office is strategically located in the Clearwater Bayside submarket and gives us access to the entire Tampa Bay region and its quality labor pool.”
