Norwalk, CT. - ChoycePeterson, Inc. (www.choycepeterson.com) announced the successful completion of lease negotiations for a 1,709 square foot expansion of OperationsInc’s (www.OperationsInc.com) headquarters at 535 Connecticut Avenue in Norwalk, CT. OperationsInc will now occupy 9,609 square feet in the building. OperationsInc, a human resources outsourcing and consulting firm, along with their sister company AllCountyJobs.com (www.AllCountyJobs.com), needed new office space to accommodate their rapid growth. John Hannigan, a principal at Choyce Peterson, Inc., represented OperationsInc in the negotiation of lease terms.
OperationsInc moved into 7,900 square feet at this building in 2012 and has been growing its business and employee base ever since. Since its move in date in August of 2012, OperationsInc has increased its staff size by 50% and is continuing this explosive growth, with a projected doubling in size by 2015. Further, the expansion of FairfieldCountyJobs.com (www.FairfieldCountyJobs.com) and the sister job boards of the AllCountyJobs.com network have also contributed to the need for more office square footage.
As per David Lewis, President of OperationsInc and AllCountyJobs.com, “Since we benefited from John Hannigan’s commercial real estate expertise during our move to this building, we naturally called on him again when we were ready to expand into contiguous office space within the building.”
Hannigan commented, “We were able to negotiate favorable lease terms that included aggressive concessions, along with the landlord paying for the custom build-out of the new space. The landlord retained a reliable tenant and OperationsInc was able to expand contiguously into their new office space.”
David Lewis stated, “We are thrilled with the new space that perfectly accommodates our growing companies. John and his team did an excellent job for us once again in both securing a very advantageous deal, as well as guiding us on key decisions along the way.”
Steven Greenbush of CBRE represented the landlord, Matrix Investment Group LLC, in the transaction.
