Case Studies

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Co. wanted to relocate its Orlando operations to a more efficiently designed, Class-A office space that would provide a more productive environment for its 900-plus employees. HMH was also on a short 12-month timeline. After scouring the marketplace, HMH turned to Flagler who delivered an innovative, two-building, 250,000-square-foot solution at SouthPark Center on time and within budget.

Office Depot was considering options to relocate, including potentially outside of Florida.  Flagler, in partnership with TIAA-CREF, presented Office Depot with a proposal to design, develop and lease a new global headquarters facility on a 28-acre site the venture owned. Office Depot agreed to a build-to-suit by Flagler and TIAA-CREF, with a 15-year lease. The 635,000 sq. ft. campus consists of three vertical, interconnected, five-story buildings that are linked by glass-enclosed atriums and can accommodate up to 2,500 employees.

Baptist was searching for a prime location to build a new hospital to serve the needs of the growing South Jacksonville population. Flagler modified its development program at Flagler Center to meet Baptist's requirements. The hospital was completed in 2004, and since that time the hospital’s patient volume has greatly exceeded expectations.

Main Street America Group needed to consolidate their local office division for Old Dominion Insurance Company, while expanding and relocating their corporate headquarters from New Hampshire.  MSA Group was on a tight six-month time frame and turned to Flagler for help. Flagler designed a build-to-suit and delivered it on time and under budget.

Corinthian Colleges experienced rapid growth of its Orlando campus and wanted its own building, but had unique timing and build-out needs. Flagler was able to design, permit, and construct a new 60,000-square-foot facility in a 12-month timeframe that met the tenant's delivery expectation and financial budget.

Kemper Auto and Home had outgrown its existing facility and as a result of expansions, its offices were fragmented. Kemper could not find an existing building that would meet all of its needs and was on a tight 15-month timeline. Flagler had the perfect location: Flagler Center, and had already designed a new 142,000-squre-foot, five-story, Class-A office building, which was perfect for Kemper’s immediate needs and beyond. Flagler completed the build out under budget and ahead schedule.

Strayer University was searching for a site to house the university’s new South Orlando campus. Strayer wanted a standalone building with a visible location and parking ratio of 8/1,000. Flagler found a solution at its SouthPark Center. One of SouthPark's large, four-story office buildings had more parking space than existing tenants needed. Adjacent to this building was two acres of raw land, which fronted John Young Parkway—a perfect site for a build-to-suit solution. Strayer is delighted with its new two-story, 18,000-square-foot building.

Website Pros, an existing tenant in Flagler Center, was merging with Web.com. The merger required the relocation of 150 employees from Atlanta. The combined company wanted to consolidate its operations into a single building with the ability for future expansion. Flagler had just delivered a 112,300-square-foot, Class-A office building, within the same park. Flagler worked with Web.com to extend its existing lease and execute a new lease to occupy the new building. Web.com moved in on time and remained on schedule for its consolidation.
