JLL Brokers 48,818SF Lease Expansion for Major Data Provider in Tampa

TAMPA, February 21, 2018– JLL announces today that the firm has completed a 48,818-square-foot office lease expansion on behalf of Equinix, global interconnection and data center company. The company will be growing from its original space of 30,164 square feet to occupy the 7th and 8th floors at Two Harbour Place, a premier office property located at 302 Knights Run Avenue, on the waterfront community of Harbour Island in the heart of Downtown Tampa. The expansion has brought Two Harbour Place to 92% occupancy.

JLL Senior Vice Presidents Caleb Lewis and John Heald represented the tenant in the lease negotiations. JLL Senior Vice Presidents Jim Moler and Deana Beer represented the landlord of Two Harbour Place in the transaction.

"With growing demand in Tampa's professional services sector, Equinix needed more space to accommodate its workforce and operations. Rather than relocating to a different market, our JLL team was able to work with the tenant and the landlord to keep the company at Two Harbour Place," said JLL's Caleb Lewis. "This expansion is a major win for the local economy as it ensures that Equinix will continue to add jobs in the region for years to come."

Equinix develops interconnection and data center solutions that can adapt to the ever-growing, ever-changing requirements of today's businesses landscape. The company is strategically positioned with industry-leading data centers, bringing together market leaders and innovators on a single, global interconnection platform. With a presence in 48 markets worldwide, Equinix is where companies come together to realize new opportunities and accelerate their business, IT and cloud strategies.

"Equinix was excellent to work with throughout the lease negotiations," said JLL's John Heald. "By maintaining consistent and open communication with the client, we were successful in executing a real estate strategy that will further its business growth in the Tampa Bay market." ​

The office property Two Harbour Place offers tenants a prime location at the gateway to 2.5 million square feet of new office developments that are within walking distance to downtown's most popular event venues. Harbour Island's expansive, front-row waterfront views provide a breathtaking perspective of Downtown Tampa.
