BALTIMORE (June 19, 2019) – Savills has completed an 11-year, 18,058-square-foot lease to relocate the independently-owned, marketing communications agency imre to Court Towers, located at 210 West Pennsylvania Avenue, in Towson.
After more than 26 years in the Baltimore area, imre will move from its current office at 909 Ridgebrook Rd in Sparks to the 7-story, 137,102-square-foot office building in November 2019. Savills Senior Managing Director George Santos, Managing Director Ryan Miller and Assistant Director Mike Barbalace advised the agency in the long-term solution.
“As a forward-thinking company, it was crucial for imre to have a large, open floorplan that would foster collaboration and creativity,” Santos said. “In addition to addressing its expansion needs, the company wanted an office that reflected its brand and inclusive culture. Our team was able to secure an option that will allow the agency to create its own identity in a unique setting.”
The new lease increases imre’s usable footprint by more than by 25%, accommodating up to 145 employees. The company will occupy the entire seventh floor of the building. Constructed in 1989, Court Towers offers a recently-renovated lobby and plaza, a covered parking garage, on-site security, a full-service deli and a fully-equipped fitness center with a sauna, aerobics equipment, men’s and women’s locker rooms and showers. The landlord, PGA Court Towers LP, was represented by Cushman & Wakefield.
“In the past year, imre has achieved many successes, including its acquisition of Los Angeles-based public relations firm JMPR and growing its fee income by 33% to $22 million,” said Miller. “With its growing headcount and need for additional space, the company’s new headquarters supports its plans to expand its presence in the region and attract and retain top talent.”
Founded in 1993 and owned by David Imre and Mark Eber, the agency has a 26-year history of delivering meaningful results for some of the world’s leading brands through full-service creative, social, digital marketing and public relations services. The company’s client roster includes brands such as 3M, Airstream, AstraZeneca, Dickies, John Deere, NFL, Pfizer, STIHL, T. Rowe Price and Under Armour.
