JLL ushers fast-growing agency into new office at The Highline
Bounteous to occupy 13,261 square feet of creative office space
PITTSBURGH, Dec. 17, 2020 — JLL is pleased to announce that Chicago-based digital agency Bounteous has leased 13,261 square feet of office space on the first floor of The Highline, a mixed-use property located at 333 E. Carson Street. JLL Vice President Jesse Ainsman, Managing Director Jason Stewart and Senior Vice President Jeff Adams led the deal on behalf of the owner, McKnight Realty Partners, and JLL Vice President Andrew Millberg represented Bounteous.
Ranked one of Adweek’s Top 10 Largest Growing Agencies, Bounteous is expanding its footprint in Pittsburgh with this move. The agency plans to relocate its 50 employees into the new space in May of 2021, with the amenities to attract and grow its team roughly 40 percent at The Highline. The agency previously occupied just over 7,000 square feet at 24 South 18th Street.
“We can’t wait to continue to grow our Pittsburgh presence alongside the community at The Highline,” said Jon Meck, Vice President of Marketing at Bounteous. “We’ve been a part of the Pittsburgh tech scene since 2004, and our growth as Bounteous has allowed us to continue to give back to our community, as well as attract talent and customers in Pittsburgh and beyond.”
Millberg added: “Bounteous is no stranger to Pittsburgh's Best Places to Work lists. With that, it was no surprise that throughout the project they sought an expansion and continuation of their already well-established culture that prioritizes employees and their workspace environment. This move to The Highline, with all its unique attractions, affords the opportunity to maintain those values for years to come.”
"This commitment from Bounteous shows that creative office space with unparalleled outdoor views and venues continue to be in high demand from the innovation generation,” said Izzy Rudolph, President of Development and Acquisitions at McKnight Realty Partners.
Originally constructed as the “Pittsburgh Terminal Property” in 1906, this five-building office and warehouse complex was designed as a central point of connection between road, river and rail transport. McKnight Realty Partners repositioned this historic property into The Highline, which now acts as a revitalized hub for all of South Shore’s attractions. Tenants and visitors can enjoy the one-acre public patio converted from the former rail switchyard, striking views of the city skyline from an outdoor sky bridge, direct access to the Three Rivers Heritage Trail for walking, biking and kayaking, and numerous on-site and walkable restaurant and bar options such as Sly Fox Brewing Company (coming soon) and De Fer Coffee.
“If your company is looking to recruit the bright young talent in Pittsburgh, let The Highline be your recruitment tool,” said Ainsman. “This complex flawlessly combines creative office design, a vibrant location, state-of-the-art technology and coveted amenities for an elevated working environment.”
The Highline’s 486,683 square feet includes move-in ready office and retail space, a new 30-seat conference training center and lounge, Keystone Innovation Zone, 584-car integral parking garage with bicycle accommodations and electric vehicle plug-in access, an on-site 24-hour Anytime Fitness, a full-service Unison Bike Lab, and an all-glass exterior elevator.
