Piedmont Office Realty Trust Leases Kimley-Horn Over 60,000 Square Feet in Downtown Orlando
Atlanta, May 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Piedmont Office Realty Trust, Inc. (“Piedmont") (NYSE:PDM), an owner of Class A office properties located primarily in the Sunbelt, today announced that Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc. (“Kimley-Horn”), has leased approximately 61,000 square feet at its 200 and 222 South Orange Avenue buildings in downtown Orlando through 2034. The lease is the largest office lease signed in downtown Orlando since 2019 and will be Kimley-Horn’s second location with Piedmont as they also lease approximately 80,000 square feet in Piedmont’s Dallas portfolio.
“We are excited to build upon our valued relationship with Kimley-Horn at this strategic office location,” said Alex Valente, Piedmont’s Executive Vice President – Southeast Region. “This sustainability focused, LEED Gold project provides an unmatched amenity experience, including an activated outdoor community park and tenant collaboration spaces that truly create a unique office environment for tenants and visitors alike. The connectivity of 200 and 222 South Orange offers one of downtown Orlando’s largest floorplates, which allowed us to provide a flexible and efficient space for Kimley-Horn encompassing an entire floor across both buildings.”
200 South Orange Avenue is a 30-story, approximately 650,000 square foot, LEED Gold, Class A trophy office tower located in the heart of downtown Orlando, easily accessible via I-4, SR 408, and the adjacent Church Street SunRail station. Piedmont has recently completed a major transformation of the building including, a lobby renovation, enhanced food service offerings, and expanded outdoor collaboration space. In late 2020, Piedmont acquired 222 South Orange Avenue an approximately 130,000 square foot office building that shares an atrium with 200 South Orange Avenue and is connected to the 200 South Orange tower on floors 4-8 across the atrium, creating approximately 38,000 square foot floorplates.
