“Zipwhip has leased space for a new Seattle headquarters that will give the fast-growing business text messaging startup room to nearly double its headcount.
The company has leased the top floor and a half at Martin Selig’s five-story Elliott Bay Office Park, a 75,000-square-foot space with room for approximately 500 people. It will move into the new offices toward the end of 2019, said John Lauer, Zipwhip CEO.
Zipwhip is “busting at the seams” in its current space, Lauer said. Today, it subleases a 50,000-square-foot space from Real Networks at a building called Home Plate Center, across the street from the newly christened T-Mobile Park.”

“Seattle-based dog-sitting startup Rover is building out an office in Seattle’s 8th + Olive building with space for 700 employees.
Permits filed this month with the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections show $2.6 million worth of tenant improvements to 60,000 square feet on floors 16, 18, 19 and 20 at 720 Olive Way.
Rover on Tuesday said it has leased six floors, including the roof, and 91,150 square feet of space in the building.
The company plans to have the office ready for employees by the end of the year, but has already moved some employees into one floor of the new building. Rover has about 350 employees in Seattle, meaning the 8th + Olive space is enough to double its local workforce, and add more than 500 employees total.”
