L3 Technologies Shutters Sarasota Office Space, Heads to St. Pete

John Kennerty Local News

Per the Business Observer in their article L3 Technologies leases space in downtown St. Petersburg, the company is expected to close its office in Sarasota and move employees to a consolidated space in St. Pete.

The article states, “L3 Technologies, a supplier of detection and security technology to the federal government and armed forces, has leased the fifth and sixth floors of the Tampa Bay Times building, located at 490 1st Ave. S., in downtown St. Petersburg. The building is also the home of Taylor Media Corp., which publishes the Penny Hoarder.

Franklin Street arranged the lease of the 60,000-square-foot space, according to a press release from the commercial real estate firm. L3, which has about 31,000 employees worldwide and five offices in Florida, will locate 200 workers to St. Petersburg as a result of the move to a establish a new headquarters for its Commercial Aviation Solutions business in the building.”

The plan is to consolidate Florida operations.

When companies expand, contract or consolidate office space there is plenty to do for commercial moving companies. After the companies have determined which furniture will need to be moved (and which to liquidate), commercial movers like ours in Sarasota, will be called in to manage the heavy lifting – disassembling furniture, preparing furniture for storage or for moving, relocating the furniture and reassembling the furniture with the new space.

With a consolidation of this size, it would not be surprising if the entire move spans days or weeks and may perhaps require the services of multiple office moving companies within Sarasota, Tampa and St. Pete.

*Office Movers of Sarasota is not affiliated with this commercial relocation and consolidation project as of Jan. 2019.
