ST. LOUIS, June 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Internet radio and digital broadcast platform provider StationDigital, Inc. today announced it has moved its corporate headquarters from Los Angeles to a building in St. Louis in order to attract top-tier talent and boost its branding efforts. It is leasing 13,268 square feet at The Highlands Plaza Two, located at 5700 Oakland Ave, Suite #200.
StationDigital chose St. Louis for its low cost of living and its abundance of quality software development talent that comes from area firms such as CenturyLink/Savvis, Visa, MasterCard, A&B, Rawlings, Energizer, Stifel Nicolaus, Ralston Purina, and US Bank, among others. The company is retaining an office presence in its former headquarters in Los Angeles in order to maintain its strategic ties to the entertainment and music industries.
StationDigital has signage rights on the building, with its sign to be viewed by more than 175,000 daily drivers from the I-64 highway. The building is centrally located between downtown St. Louis and the west county area, making it an attractive work destination for a large number of commuters. The Class A office suite comes fully furnished with modern items from Florence Knoll and Haworth. It's a LEED Silver classified building and offers free covered parking and several other amenities for tenants.
"Moving our headquarters to Saint Louis is an exciting chapter in the expansion and evolution of the company," said Lou Rossi, Chairman of the Board and CEO of StationDigital. "St. Louis provides companies like ours with a vibrant community, a low cost of living, and access to top-tier talent that will allow us to hire locally and build out a great team. We also wanted a centrally-located building with signage rights in order to build our local branding image to further promote the company as a place to work and the best choice for music streaming."
"As part StationDigital's strategic plan, we were searching for a corporate headquarters site that would support their branding and marketing initiatives. The Highlands Plaza Two, 5700 Oakland Ave, was the perfect high image, high identity building site in the West County where StationDigital will have building signage visibility from I-64 and a great location to attract the technology employees, and close to amenities and service for their employees" said their exclusive corporate real estate agent Nancy Morse CCIM, SIOR, Senior Vice President Cornish & Carey Newmark Knight Frank.
