Indeed To Lease 200K SF Of 2+U Building
Skanska's downtown Seattle 2+U development will include an 85-foot-high open area under the building to create an Urban Village public space.

Indeed, a job search engine company, will lease 200K SF on 10 contiguous floors in the 2+U building that is being developed by Skanska in the central business district.

This is the 38-story, 686K SF office tower’s first tenant. It is at the corner of Second Avenue and University Street, adjacent to the Seattle Art Museum and Benaroya Hall.

“We are honored to welcome worldwide industry leader Indeed as the first tenant at 2+U,” Skanska Executive Vice President Murphy McCullough, head of commercial development operations in the Greater Seattle region, said in a statement. “With this lease, our original vision for the project — to create an office and retail experience that is attractive to a diverse mix of tenants and business sectors — is now a reality.”

The 2+U building, which is set to be complete in July, is lifted 85 feet off the ground at the highest point to create an outdoor urban village with open public space, 18K SF of retail, and arts and culture space under the building.

 “Indeed is exactly the type of tenant we imagined would make the most of what 2+U offers, from the urban retail village to the outstanding views,” McCullough said. “The experience we created at 2+U will help Indeed attract and retain top talent in this highly competitive market.”

The tower has an offset core with flexible, versatile floor plates that range from 18K to 30K SF.
