In 2025, Vancouver-based ZoomInfo, one of Clark County’s most valued companies, will move its headquarters to a brand new building in the Port of Vancouver’s Terminal 1 waterfront development.
ZoomInfo, which has doubled its number of employees since early 2020 in part through acquisitions of five companies, is located in building 805 Broadway in downtown Vancouver. Its initial public offering on the NASDAQ stock exchange in June 2020 enabled the company to raise $ 934 million from investors. The company was valued at $ 8 billion after the IPO.
Lincoln Property Co. and Bridge Investment Group are developing the building. The building is planned with approximately 366,000 square feet of space. ZoomInfo has signed a lease for the entire building and the company will move to the new offices in phases.
The renderings show a blue exterior of the future building with a lot of glass. A sky bridge over the building spans a garden path to an adjacent building in Terminal 1; the two “towers” of the development are part of the ZoomInfo headquarters.
ZoomInfo founder and CEO Henry Schuck said the building can accommodate up to 3,000 employees, so there is room to expand there. Parking was at the top of the building’s amenities list, and the building will have plenty of spots, he said. A commercial space is planned on the ground floor.
ZoomInfo will soon hire an architect to design the entire exterior. It will likely include a cafe for the employees.
The Vancouver waterfront beat all other places in Clark County, and a big factor was restaurants and other retail outlets, Schuck said.
“You get an integrated campus without having to build your own campus,” he said. “The waterfront continued to appear better than anywhere else. This is the place where you expect the best employer to be.
Schuck founded the company as DiscoverOrg in 2007 as a business-to-business marketing company that uses large databases to connect businesses with potential customers using artificial intelligence and machine learning.
He moved it to Vancouver in 2009. In 2019, the company acquired Zoom Information in a major buyout and rebranded the company as ZoomInfo. ZoomInfo examined 12 locations in the greater Vancouver area before securing Terminal 1, according to the press release.
“We are delighted to welcome ZoomInfo to our portfolio,” said Patrick Gilligan, executive vice president of the Pacific Northwest region for Lincoln Property Co., in the press release. “ZoomInfo’s rapid growth is attributable to both the worldwide success of its revenue-generating software and its commitment to fostering strong collaboration in the office. We look forward to working with ZoomInfo to bring the vision for its new global headquarters to life and help create more jobs for the local economy.
The Red Lion Hotel Vancouver on the Terminal 1 wharf property will be demolished over the next few years for $ 1 million, according to Washington’s capital budget.
