Integrate Chooses Downtown Phoenix, Inks Anchor Deal At Monroe Building

Scottsdale-based national software developer leases penthouse level, plans new headquarters for 100+ employees

PHOENIX, Oct. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Could Phoenix be the desert answer to Silicon Valley? Following a number of influential tech companies that have recently announced relocations to Arizona, another leading software company is moving its headquarters to Downtown Phoenix. Integrate (www.integrate.com), a leading developer of marketing software, has leased the entire 19th floor Penthouse Level of 111 West Monroe, advancing a trend of both established technology companies and entrepreneurial start-ups leasing space in the building, and joining a growing constituency of tech-based companies now basing operations from the Silicon Desert.

Integrate joins list of tech companies moving headquarters to Downtown Phoenix

"Integrate is growing at a rapid pace and making the move to tech-centric Downtown Phoenix was a natural fit for us," said Jeremy Bloom, CEO of Integrate. "The Monroe Building offers a unique environment that aligns with our company culture and entrepreneurial spirit, while providing a solid foundation for us to keep growing," he said. 

With an atmosphere and amenities geared toward entrepreneurial organizations, the Monroe Building has attracted a number of high profile technology firms, including Galvanize, Gainsight, Allbound and Uber.

"We still believe that 'today's Downtown Phoenix' is the smartest bet in the region; the combination of new infrastructure, world class education, and cool local flavor is compelling, especially in light of our competitive pricing posture," said Tim O'Neil, a partner with the Monroe Building.

The Monroe Building offers move-in ready creative office suites; a 96-point Walkscore (higher than many Silicon Valley office properties); and first-floor retail that is entirely comprised of local, boutique retailers, including wine, coffee and pizza shops.  Other amenities include free Wi-Fi in the common areas, high speed Internet, a mobile app/text valet service for visitor parking, close proximity to the Light Rail, as well as numerous restaurants and hotels within walking distance. The high tech, mid-century modern aesthetic is an ideal atmosphere for businesses looking to promote creativity and increase efficiency.

According to a July article in the New York Times, big name tech companies are pulling up stakes in Silicon Valley and resettling in Phoenix as a financial decision many corporate heads are calling a 'no brainer'.  Not only does Phoenix offer special corporate subsidies and benefits for companies bringing tech jobs, but the lower cost of living offers a higher quality of life for people long accustomed to paying higher prices and suffering longer commutes in Silicon Valley.

According to real estate research firm Reis, as of 2nd quarter 2016, San Francisco had an average asking rental rate of $50.43/SF and a vacancy rate of 10.1%, compared to Phoenix, which had an average asking rate of $24.39 and a vacancy rate of 24.6%. Phoenix offers substantially lower cost of operations with rents at less than 50% of the cost in San Francisco and more plentiful options. The cost to buy a home in Phoenix is also less than a quarter what it is in San Francisco, with median home price in Phoenix at $221,000 versus $812,000 in San Francisco, according to Zillow.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
