Success Stories

SharkNinja

Center 128 East – 89 A Street, Needham, MA

Challenge

SharkNinja needed corporate real estate advisory services for establishing and growing their US headquarters as well as global footprint. Locally, the organization grew with a multi-building campus and needed to strategically consolidate operations with one HQ building to enhance collaboration between engineering, product marketing and the core team. Further, global operations had grown to require additional capacity to facilitate future success.

Strategy

Landmark worked relentlessly in collaboration with Newmark Grubb Knight Frank to effectively manage growth globally and locally, find the right HQ location that fit all the parameters of the search, facilitated negotiations, financial projections and most importantly, delivered outstanding results to meet SharkNinja's needs.

“The Landmark team has been phenomenal! They have been an integral part of our growth as our primary real estate advisor helping us navigate growth of over 500% with R&D and commercial office needs while being mindful of space efficiency, our branding and cost. We truly appreciate their full commitment to our continued success!”

Consulate of Mexico

55 Franklin Street, Boston, MA

Challenge

The Consulate's office was no longer effectively supporting the Mexican citizens. The new Consul General needed to evaluate alternatives and possibly establish a new location that would provide access, security, and improve functionality to the public.

Strategy

Landmark was engaged to meet the challenge with urgency. Our team reviewed the situation, advised key staff regarding various options, and found site alternatives that met the Consulate’s detailed space, location and budgetary guidelines. We provided essential information required for the US Department of State to approve the new location, and the new premises were established within a tight timeframe.

“Throughout this process, Landmark demonstrated professionalism, imagination, creativity, great ability and tireless drive to overcome obstacles and to come up with options and ideas for the type of space that would best suit our needs. Their negotiating skills were also crucial to a smooth move out process. Landmark provided comprehensive analysis that mitigated risk and delivered value at every turn. All along, they diligently delivered expert detailed advice and a comprehensive analysis of potential solutions to our needs... We are very satisfied with the results and I personally am very pleased that we chose Landmark as our real estate advisor.”
