The Wall Street Journal reports that the one bright spot in an office-space market has been technology-industry expansion. The WSJ uses Google’s recent purchase of a former freight warehouse in Manhattan as well as Amazon’s recent plans to develop three million square feet of space by its headquarters,  and Apple’s recently announced plans to build a $304 million campus in Austin, Texas to illustrate Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.’s findings that companies in the tech sector accounted for 29% of all growth in the U.S. office market in 2011.

 

But they certainly could have found some examples of tech companies expanding in the New Orleans area as well.  Corporate Realty is proud to be representing exciting tech companies expanding and moving to our region as well as landlords who are making innovative changes to make their buildings more attractive to these younger companies.  Leasing Agent Austin Lavin specializes in helping start ups solve their commercial real estate needs and recently published his 7 Steps to Finding and Negotiating Office Space in New Orleans and Beyond in the local tech blog, Silicon Bayou News.
