The Instant Group works with Jaguar Land Rover to deliver 50,000SF in Portland

Tuesday, April 2 , 2024

Instant, which oversees four million-plus square feet of Managed Office leases globally, conducted a search to build out and deliver a turnkey research and development office for Jaguar Land Rover.

The Instant Group, the largest global marketplace for flexible workspace, has signed a 50,000-rentable-square-foot lease for Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) for Redfox Commons at 2638 NW Wilson Street in Portland, Oregon.

JLR will be the first company in the standalone, single-tenant, on the campus, which has an alternate address of 2034 NW 27th Ave. Instant secured the space and will work to deliver to spec a preeminent office for JLR engineers and designers working on technology and software for its vehicles. This includes the creation of a research and development space and a collaborative workspace environment that is design and experience led. JLR is expected to move into the space in Summer 2024, and Instant will deliver hospitality-led operations through its Managed Office product.

The Managed Office product affords companies a unique way to procure and deliver space - on time and on budget – incorporating tenant’s brand and office specifications while Instant aligns financial terms to adhere to client needs, and then assumes both the lease and management of the space. Globally, The Instant Group manages over four million square feet of Managed Office for large multinational companies.

Developed by Langley Investment, a woman-owned, private real estate investment company based in Portland, Oregon, in partnership with Belay Investment Group, Redfox Commons is an award-winning timber-framed converted warehouse with the original bow and scissor trusses preserved. The property’s distinguished design features have been noted by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award and the DeMuro Award for Excellence in Preservation, Resue, and Revitalization, among others.

“JLR is a key global client, with multiple, full-service Instant Managed Offices across the world. They came to us for our delivery expertise, our financial structuring which made their dream location possible, and hospitality-rich services to elevate their experience and brand. We reimagined the Redfox Commons, through sustainable practices, to enhance JLR’s innovative R&D collaboration hub today and into their future," said Nestor Eliadis, Americas Executive Vice President, Real Estate and Development, The Instant Group.

The Instant Group and JLR were represented by Daren Duke of Colliers International, and Langley Investment was represented by Tom Usher of Cushman & Wakefield and Alexandra Henderson and Grant Guernsey of Kidder Mathews. JLL is the property manager, while The Instant Group will manage Redfox Commons for JLR.
