CBRE will bring its Workplace360 initiative to the Indianapolis suburbs with the opening of a new 21,420-square-foot office in Keystone, Indiana.
The move will bring together all of CBRE’s Indianapolis employees under one roof to foster increased collaboration, improve productivity, better serve its clients and establish a world-class work environment aimed at recruiting and retaining the firm’s industry-leading talent.
The new office will be located on the 10th floor of Keystone at the Crossing, 8888 Keystone Crossing. The new 21,420-square-foot space will accommodate employees previously based at the firm’s Downtown and Keystone offices.
“Putting all of our employees under one roof is something we have been looking forward to for a number of years,” said David Funke, managing director. “Employees in our current Keystone office know firsthand what the area has to offer, and now we will all be able to share that in a highly collaborative environment. The new space will be a showcase to our clients where the modern workplace is heading, creating an urban feel in a suburban environment.”
CBRE’s move to Keystone will put it in the third-largest office submarket in the area with more than 4 million square feet of space, behind Carmel and downtown, where CBRE’s current office is.
Workplace360 is CBRE’s approach to workplace strategy designed to promote flexibility, mobility and productivity through technology-enabled, 100-percent free-address and paperless offices.
Based in part on research that shows that employees spend 50 percent of their time working with others, CBRE’s Workplace360 initiative provides a flexible way of working and a system of places, technologies and behaviors that allow for choice based on an employee’s changing needs throughout the day.
A free-address and paperless environment with no assigned workstations, Workplace360 offices feature a variety of work settings – a balance of both collaborative and private spaces – from which employees can self-select depending on the project at hand. Enhanced technology that supports this mobile way of working is a core element of every Workplace360 office.
CBRE’s Zane Brown represented the firm in the transaction. CBRE will leverage its Workplace team with Sarah Goldsmith, and locally Donnie Reed will handle Project Management to implement Workplace360 from initiation through move-in.
