P. 4 occupier services Group Colliers International Jenner &amp; Block With 10 years remaining on the lease on its 372,000-square-foot space in Chicagos CBD, Jenner &amp; Block, the national law firm, wanted to increase space efficiencies, reduce costs, and manage future growth. They retained Colliers to perform a strategic analysis of their lease and provide tenant representation services. &gt; Our solution Colliers developed a space program/market strategy for Jenner and evaluated its stay-vs.-relocate options. As the Colliers team began evaluating potential market alternatives, they had a brilliant idea: that JennerBlock join forces with Mesirow Financial, whose lease expired within four months of JennerBlocks. Jenner needed 400,000 RSF; Mesirow, 350,000 RSF. With a combined 750,000 RSF requirement, both firms were able to maximize their negotiation advantages. Colliers coordinated the site selection process for both Jenner and Mesirow, including extensive market examination and in-depth financial analyses. The team bid to three new development sites and one existing building. The final choice was to anchor a 1.13 million-square-foot office tower at 353 North Clark Street. In addition to negotiating participation in the building design, Colliers introduced a flexible planning concept, which included demount- able furniture systems in core areas. This both reduced costs and increased flexibility.What was the result for the client? Jenner realized a tenant-driven design- build for a 1.13 million-square-foot, 45-story new office tower for which Jenners Optimum Floor Plate Study was utilized to guide design. The $380 million project was completed on budget and on schedule, and Jenners NER was $2.65/SF less than that of one of its major competitors executing a similar lease in a new project nearby. Success Story 7. Colliers International occupier services Group P. 5 ZYNGA INC. Zynga, one of Americas fastest growing firms, expanded from one small office in San Francisco to a substantial international real estate portfolio in only two years. Initially, to relocate their headquarters, they required a cost-sensitive solution with total flexibility in a setting that expressed their culture and identity.Our solution Following a visioning session with Zyngas leaders, Colliers developed a real estate strategy that aligned Zyngas financial objectives and operational requirements with short- and long-term occupancy solutions. Colliers scrutinized potential vacancies and ultimately created an off-market opportunity. It involved redesign and repositioning of an existing building, as well as relocation and termination of several of the buildings tenants. Colliers provided comprehensive financial modeling for cash flow and PL impact of several deal structures and joint venture opportunities to Zynga. We developed a negotiation strategy that focused on strong economics and lease flexibility through unilateral expansion, extension, and termination options. In addition, Colliers created leverage to obtain incentives from the City and County of San Francisco to retain Zynga in the City. .What was the result for the client? Colliers delivered a short-term solution, allowing the company to mature while maintaining absolute flexibility. We executed the longer-term strategy with a 270,000 square foot off-market transaction. The aggressive expansion, extension, and termination rights give Zynga broad flexibility. Colliers assisted the company in developing a centralized, scalable real estate and facilities management department; coordinated functions of multiple parties; created internal accountability; and developed multiple cost-saving initiatives. We continue to manage Zyngas global real estate portfolio, aiding in strategy development, facility acquisition and disposition, financial impact of real estate decisions, special consulting projects, and integrated ancillary services. Success Story 8. P. 6 occupier services Group Colliers International P. 6 occupier services Group Colliers International Colliers service was second to none. They were extremely responsive under all our respective timetables, demands, the pressures that came up the new deals that were being offered, the landlords trying to leapfrog the other landlords. They were focused on a long-term relationship and making sure we added value not only in the immediate timeframe but for the long term. Bill Marianes Managing Partner McGuireWoods Our goal was to save 20 percent, $4 million a year, $40 million over a 10-year lease term, and Colliers accomplished that. We put our trust and confidence in Colliers and they delivered the results. John Spinney Former Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Investors BankTrust Company Colliers has performed functions that I consider way beyond the purview of a traditional real estate broker. They have been involved in virtually every meeting for our new office building, contributed materially throughout lease negotiations, and continued to be involved after the lease was executed. I have always seen Colliers put Jenners interest first even where it was potentially not in their own interest to do so.
