Posted: June 30, 2015 JAMF Software to double HQ size with move
Growing Minneapolis tech company JAMF Software will roughly double the size of its headquarters with a move to 52,000 square feet downtown at the 100 Washington Ave. S. building.
The company signed a lease for the space Wednesday. It will move out of about 27,000 square feet at the Grain Exchange building in Minneapolis, where it moved to in 2012.
JAMF makes applications businesses use to manage Apple Inc. devices, including computers and smartphones.
The company has 450 employees (up from around 160 in 2012) and expects its headcount to hit 500 by the end of the year, CEO Dean Hager said in an interview earlier this month.
Company officials like 100 Washington partly for its wide-open floor plans and easy access to Minneapolis' North Loop and Northeast neighborhoods, said Steve Hanson, vice president of operations.
"It's a really nice location for our employees," he said.
JAMF also has expanded its operations in Eau Claire, Wis., in recent years.
CBRE's John Lorence and John Nigon represented JAMF in its search. Transwestern's Reed Christianson and Erin Wendorf represented the building's owner, Shorenstein, in the transaction
The 100 Washington building is undergoing a $12 million renovation. San Fanscisco-based Shorenstein paid $100 million last year to buy it and two other buildings that are part of the Washington Square campus.
