RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK – IBM is seeking tenants for multiple facilities on its RTP campus, a spokesperson for the company confirmed with WRAL TechWire today.
Carrie Bendzsa told WRAL TechWire that the company had “some unused space that is going up for lease,” and that another facility was occupied by a tenant, but that tenant is moving out of the facility, so that space will be available as well.
IBM’s senior state executive, Tim Humphrey, noted that the majority of IBM employees, including those based out of the RTP campus, are working remotely, estimating about 85-90% of employees choosing to do so.
“There has been no disruption to the work we are doing with clients,” said Humphrey. “Now, as we envision the future of work in a post- pandemic world, we are focused on a hybrid workplace that supports IBMers to innovate, serve our clients and engender trust.”
The company is moving toward a hybrid model, said Humphrey, even as it re-opens offices globally, with more than 200 already re-opened.
The Triangle Business Journal reported that IBM has enlisted Cushman & Wakefield to assist the company in marketing 630,000 square feet that will be available, including three buildings full of office, lab, and warehouse space, and noted that the three sites that will be leased include buildings 305, 307 and 203, three of 21 buildings on the IBM campus on East Cornwallis Road.
