The design consulting firm Kimley-Horn is moving its headquarters from Cary to the One Bank of America Plaza building on Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.
Beginning in April, the company will lease 55,000 square feet in the 17-story tower that is owned by Raleigh-based Highwoods Properties.
Kimley-Horn now has offices in Cary, downtown Raleigh and Durham. The move to One Bank of America Plaza will allow it to combine its Raleigh and Cary offices into three floors. The company plans to keep its office in Durham open.
Kimley-Horn will occupy space in One Bank of America Plaza that an existing tenant is vacating in December. Highwoods did not disclose the departing tenant.
Never miss a local story.
Highwoods acquired One Bank of America Plaza for $92.3 million a year ago and is now making improvements to its facade and common areas. The 374,000-square-foot building is nearly 90 percent occupied.
Earlier this month, Bank of America announced that it would move its local offices from downtown to a new 18-story tower in North Hills that is scheduled to open in the first quarter of next year.
The move means Bank of America will vacate 43,000 square feet that it now leases in One Bank of America Plaza. Highwoods plans to rebrand the building once Bank of America relocates next year.
