Business information provider will take over Terminal 1 on the waterfront in 2025.

COURTESY: ZOOMINFO - How ZoomInfos HQ will look in 20205 when it takes over Terminal 1 on the Vancouver, Wash. waterfront. The company offers itself as a better alternative to Googling when it comes to contacting a business. Zoominfo has signed a lease to expand its global headquarters in Vancouver, Washington.

Currently located at 805 Broadway St. in downtown Vancouver, Zoominfo will move into a four-story office at Terminal 1 along the Columbia River in 2025.

The Terminal 1 redevelopment project is planned to be a mixed-use destination with dining, shopping, and entertainment. Terminal 1 is the original marine terminal for the Port of Vancouver, between The Waterfront Vancouver and the I-5 Bridge.

Zoominfo has more than doubled its global employee headcount organically and through five acquisitions since the start of 2020.

The Zoominfo provides data and contact information about businesses and makes it readily available to salespeople. The company claims, "Our company database has over 95 million companies profiled. Used to fuel sales and marketing growth, Zoominfo can provide you data on the business that you are trying to connect with."

"Vancouver represents a thriving and growing technology hub filled with some of the nation's top talent," said Zoominfo Founder and CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Henry Schuck, who started the company in 2007 and relocated it to Vancouver in 2009. "Not only will we be able to further invest in our team, but we'll also be able to further support our community with more innovation. Terminal 1 is the perfect fit for Zoominfo because it allows us to define new possibilities as we build out our new global headquarters to help shape the future of our company."

Zoominfo considered 12 different locations in the greater Vancouver area before securing Terminal 1's entire building.

"We're thrilled to welcome Zoominfo to our portfolio," said Patrick Gilligan, Executive Vice President for the Pacific Northwest Region, Lincoln Property Company, which is developing the Terminal 1 property in a joint venture with Bridge Investment Group. "Zoominfo's rapid growth is attributable to both the worldwide success of its revenue-generating software and its commitment to fostering strong in-office collaboration. We're looking forward to working with Zoominfo to bring the vision for its new global headquarters to life and help create more jobs for the local economy."

The area is part of an opportunity zone that comes with tax breaks.

"Bridge is excited to have such a high-quality tenant that will bring so many jobs to the Vancouver Waterfront," said David Coelho, Chief Investment Officer of Bridge's Opportunity Zone Strategy. "Zoominfo will help continue the transformation of the Waterfront into a true work-live-play area."

In addition to its global headquarters, Zoominfo expanded its East Coast flagship office in Waltham, Massachusetts, about 10 miles west of Boston.
