The Tom James Company is one of the world’s largest provider of bespoke clothing, dedicated to meeting their clients’ need for convenience and world-class service. The company’s office and showroom were located in Cary, NC, in a building also housing a very fast-growing gaming company. The gaming company’s explosive growth required the custom clothier to relocate to a new headquarters on a very tight timeline, without the option of temporary space.
Our advisors moved fast to find the perfect space. The requirement was unique: a space with dual functionality to serve as both a corporate headquarters and showroom space befitting a bespoke fashion brand. We quickly identified two strong options but maintained an aggressive search and monitored the market throughout the negotiation process, later identifying a superior third location which was ultimately selected as the new space. To maintain the timeline and construction budget, we engaged the full project team, inspiring a simplified architecture plan while living up to the company’s high standards and attention to detail.
Tom James is now in an ideal space that serves their needs. The start-to-finish process was completed under a strict timeline for the site selection process and construction build-out. The company was able to sign a lease for their new space within four months and move in within seven months from the beginning of our engagement, minimizing the impact of their move on the overall business.
