CHICAGO, IL – March 05, 2020Press Release
Envestnet to Expand Footprint Further in 'Silicon Raleigh' With Move into 'Tower Two at Bloc'Envestnet, Inc. (NYSE: ENV) today announced it will relocate its North Carolina-based offices later this year to three floors of a futuristic, high-rise building currently under construction in the heart of downtown Raleigh. The move will give the Envestnet teams based there enough space to more than double their headcount over the next year.
The modern and stylish office building, called Tower Two at Bloc, is being built in Raleigh's up-and-coming Glenwood South district and will offer an on-site hotel, parking and many more amenities designed for mixing work and play. Heritage Properties, Inc, the developers of the Tower Two building site also incorporated lounge areas for meetings and get-togethers, more than 50,000 square feet of retail and dining options, and an outside urban courtyard that will feature a band stage, projection screens for community gatherings, and designated fitness zone for yoga and group workouts.
"We started expanding the Envestnet | Yodlee office in Raleigh late last year and have since been able to attract a lot of talent from the Research Triangle and burgeoning tech scene," said Stuart DePina, Chief Executive, Envestnet Data & Analytics. "Most of our product and engineering efforts, going forward, will be done out of the Raleigh office. Raleigh is also a great design center—so a lot of our future design work is going to be done from that office as well."
Year over year, population growth in Raleigh and the surrounding Research Triangle Region continues to consistently and significantly outpace the nation. "The Triangle," a thriving hub for life sciences, technology and innovation which includes Durham and Chapel Hill in addition to Raleigh, came in at No. 10 on U.S. News & World Report's latest "Best Places to Live" list. The report ranked 100 U.S. cities according to five metrics: job market, value (a blend of annual household income and cost of living), quality of life, desirability, and net migration.
Raleigh also ranked among the top 10 U.S. cities in the following studies:
- Best City to Live In in 2020 (No. 2/WalletHub)
- Best City for Young Professionals in 2019 (No. 6/SmartAsset)
- Best Place for Business and Careers in 2017 (No. 2/Forbes)
- America's Next Boom Towns in 2016 (No. 5/Forbes)
- Best Cities for Young Families in 2016 (No. 3/Value Penguin)
The new location will be in Raleigh's most popular neighborhood, offering walkable access to housing, shops, restaurants, and cafes, as well as transportation options via the rapid bus system, commuter train, and future light-rail service. It is less than one mile from North Carolina State University's main campus and Centennial Campus, and within walking distance to the state capitol.
