Informa Research Services, a market research firm and division of Informa UK of London, plans to move to Agoura Hills from Calabasas to accommodate growth, according to Jones Lang LaSalle Inc.
The market research company has taken nearly 25,500 square feet at 30501 Agoura Road in the Agoura Hills Business Park for its new regional headquarters, said JLL. The company has been at 26565 Agoura Road in Calabasas for 15 years.
While the square footage is about the same as its current location, the interior of the new space is being renovated into an open floor plan with collaboration areas for Informa. That will allow the company to be more innovative, said James Royal, a vice president of Informa. He said the company expects to move into the new headquarters in September.
JLL's Mike McKeever, Richard Bright and Ryan Bright negotiated the lease on behalf of Informa. Building owner Equity Office Properties was represented by Matthew Heyn of CBRE Group Inc.
“Informa Research Services, who had grown organically at their existing building for over 15 years, wanted a space that allowed them to create a new, modern, efficient workplace that engages and attracts talent,” McKeever said.
Informa conducts market research for fund and wealth managers, traders, insurers, analysts, and investment and retail bankers.
