AmeriGas expands Northeast Ohio offerings with new Cleveland office
JLL brokers 33,826-square-foot lease for largest U.S. retail propane distributor
CLEVELAND, Aug. 31, 2020 – JLL is pleased to announce that AmeriGas, the largest U.S. retail supplier of propane, is investing in an additional Cleveland-area office to support its growth in Northeast Ohio. The company will be leasing 33,826 square feet of Class A flex space at 650 West Resource Drive in the Brooklyn Heights Business Park.
The new office contains an existing call center, which will be renovated with high-tech upgrades to support the customer service staff of 400. With employees scattered throughout the Cleveland area, the Brooklyn Heights Business Park provides the most central location to limit commute times. The location offers visibility along Interstate 480 with monument signage opportunity, immediate access to I-77, I-480 and State Route 176, and is within 10 miles of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. Along with ample natural light and parking, the new space provides easy access to many nearby restaurants, retail locations and hotels.
“The location, amenities and renovation potential at our new local office grant our employees the high-quality space they deserve, right in the heart of Cleveland,” said AmeriGas’s Cleveland Customer Experience Center Director Kitt Semanski. “We look forward to a reenergized workplace where we can continue providing excellent care and support for our many loyal customers across the nation.”
JLL’s Don Bain Jr., executive vice president, and J.R. Fairman, vice president of brokerage, brokered the deal between AmeriGas and landlord Chelm Properties Inc. JLL also assisted AmeriGas in obtaining a Job Creation Incentive Grant with a projected value of over $2 million.
AmeriGas is committed to empowering its employees to do their best work and this office is a true demonstration of that,” said Bain. “With a tight timeline to find and renovate a property before late summer, AmeriGas’ prime season, Brooklyn Heights Mayor, Michael S. Procuk, was an exceptional partner in expediting and securing this location. We’re thrilled at the outcome.”
