Staff report

Delray’s Congress Corridor has landed another tech firm in Centerpointe Delray, formerly known as The Arbors.

The 70,000-square-foot office building will soon be home to HappyorNot Americas, a provider of digital customer service satisfaction and performance platforms.

The expanding Finland-based tech company plans to relocate its 35-employee office in West Palm Beach to Delray Beach in the fall, with plans to hire up to 30 new employees.

The company leased 9,004-square-feet at the 1690 Congress Avenue office building in Delray Beach.

Butters Realty & Management Executive Vice President Darcie Lunsford and Senior Associate Sky Butters represented landlord and Centerpointe Delray developer CDS International Holdings in the transaction.

NAI/Merin Hunter Codman Principal Jason Sundook and Commercial Associate Christopher Smith represented the tenant in the transaction.

“A key differentiator with HappyorNot deciding to relocate to Centerpointe Delray district was their ability to be centrally located in an emerging tech market,” Smith said. “The relocation will further assist with HappyorNot’s growing brand along with improving their ability to recruit and retain talent.”

The building is located in an area known as the Congress Corridor, on Congress Avenue south of Linton Boulevard. The site encompasses the former Office Depot headquarters campus where more than 600 apartments are slated to be built along with 330,000-square-feet of shops and restaurants.
