Syracuse, N.Y. - After more than 30 years in its suburban Dewitt, NY location, Arcadis will relocate its offices and more than 250 professional staff to downtown Syracuse in the late fall 2016. A major employer in the region, Arcadis, a leading global Design & Consultancy firm for natural and built assets, signed a 10-year lease for 40,000 square feet on three floors at One Lincoln Center in Syracuse. The Syracuse team represents Arcadis’ largest office in a workforce of more than 750 employees in eight locations across New York State.
The Arcadis move serves as another example of a recent trend for companies to seek out more exciting urban environments. The company hopes this move will bring added vitality to the downtown Syracuse scene and build on growing momentum reshaping the region as a vibrant and globally connected place to do business. As part of this move, Arcadis is designing the new offices as dynamic spaces to work and collaborate. This cutting edge Activity-Based Workplace design is being rolled out in Arcadis offices in other regions as a way to facilitate collaboration and mobility while providing effective working environments for staff.
“We’re excited about our new home and office design.” notes Arcadis’ Syracuse-based Region Director Lowell McBurney. “This move is a commitment to the Syracuse area that we take seriously. Relocating our staff and our business to downtown Syracuse is an opportunity for Arcadis to take a more active role in our resurgent and exciting city. We see downtown as a place where Arcadis can build on its success as we expand into new markets while growing our local roots. At the same time, we want to engage the community at large, contributing to the city’s economy, vitality and future.”
“Downtown is a growing and thriving neighborhood where people of all ages are returning to live and work. The addition of these new employees of Arcadis will continue to add to the vibrancy and vitality of our urban core,” said Syracuse Mayor Stephanie A. Miner. “I am pleased to welcome the 250 professional staff of Arcadis and encourage them to enjoy all that Downtown Syracuse has to offer.”
