ReliaQuest has recently announced a new corporate headquarters at Thousand & One in Tampa, Florida.
The new headquarters will support the ongoing growth of ReliaQuest as the company expands operations within the US and to new regions globally. The building, the distinctive centre point of Tampa’s new Water Street neighbourhood, is part of a holistically balanced urban design experience within a walkable community bringing people, productivity and wellness into alignment.
ReliaQuest will occupy the top six stories, totalling 120,000 square feet of office space, with external signage at the top of the building.
“We’re investing in this community because we believe in the region’s potential”
“ReliaQuest is proving that great cybersecurity companies can be untethered from the traditional geographic centres of the industry and being founded in Tampa has allowed us to think differently about security and keep our focus on customer outcomes,” said Greg Farrell, Chief Financial Officer of ReliaQuest. “We’re investing in this community because we believe in the region’s potential as a new tech centre for cybersecurity and the local talent. As we think about the future of work, Thousand & One provides our employees the ideal environment that prioritises productivity and wellness while supporting our long-term growth.”
Developed by Strategic Property Partners, Thousand & One is a 20-story commercial office space inspired by the native ecology of Florida, its architecture and industry. Connecting the rich, natural beauty of the region to the workplace, Thousand & One features double-height planted terraces carved into the building, which create coveted outdoor space and frame views of the water. A model for the well-being of tenants, the building features two lushly landscaped rooftop terraces, floor to ceiling windows to maximise light throughout the office space and 40% more fresh outside air than traditional office buildings.
The design of the building also follows the guidelines of the scientifically backed WELL Building Standard to increase cognitive performance and foster satisfaction at work. Thousand & One anticipates receiving its WELL Core and Shell certification by the International WELL Building Institute, which previously designated Water Street Tampa as the first pre-certified WELL neighbourhood in the world. WELL designation reflects a building or community’s commitment to promoting well-being for residents, tenants and visitors through specific evidence-based design and policy strategies based on principles of light, air, water, nourishment, movement, materials, mind and community.
