ANSYS Inc. Expands Local Headquarters with 30,000-Square-Foot Space at Zenith Ridge

JLL Tenant Representation team serves as exclusive site selection consultant

PITTSBURGH, May 18, 2018 - JLL is pleased to announce ANSYS's upcoming expansion to building II at Zenith Ridge in Southpointe II, where the company will lease an additional 31,000 square feet of space. JLL served as the site selection consultant for ANSYS' search.

The current ANSYS headquarters is located within Southpointe at 2600 ANSYS Drive and occupies 186,000 square feet. The expansion at the neighboring building, owned by Burns and Scalo Real Estate, puts Zenith Ridge at 100 percent occupancy. 

JLL Managing Director Dan Adamski led the site consulting efforts. 

"Pittsburgh's technology community is evolving and growing," said Adamski. "We're thrilled to be a part of it and help companies, like ANSYS, find spaces that support their growth and innovation."

With ample tenant amenities like walking trails, patio areas, exercise stations and more, Southpointe continues to attract tenants from a wide variety of industries.

"While partnering with JLL to evaluate our options, we found Zenith Ridge had the amenities and elements we were seeking to facilitate growth and flexibility," said Richard Castman, senior director, global procurement and real estate, ANSYS. "ANSYS is excited about expanding our operations to Zenith Ridge, especially as the park continues to grow with an assorted mix of companies."

"Although bruised and somewhat battered by the protracted downturn in the energy sector, Southpointe is showing great resiliency via the recent growth of non-energy companies such as ANSYS, MedExpress and Crown Castle," said Adamski. "Over time, this diversification of its tenant base will help Southpointe continue to shine as one of our region's premier office parks."
