Site Selector Names St. Pete a Top U.S. City for ‘New Normal’ Corporate Office

The Boyd Company recently named St. Petersburg, Florida one of the top U.S. cities for corporate office space in the "new normal" following the pandemic.

 John Boyd, principal of The Boyd Co., told the Tampa Bay Business Journal that

"Cities with amenities like St. Pete — cultural assets, restaurants and great weather — are winning that battle [tapping into local talent pools] and are attracting office developments at rates they hadn’t seen before."

The Boyd Co. provides independent location counsel to leading Fortune 500 and up-and-coming corporations worldwide.

St. Pete was one of four Florida locations to make the list of 40 top suburban office markets for the current remote and hybrid working trends.  Some factors that make the Sunshine City desirable are:

  • Florida's business climate
  • A movement to return-to-office in the financial services, life sciences, and tech industries, all of which are thriving in St. Pete
  • New office space coming online
  • Existing coworking space for companies looking to establish a footprint while searching for more space
  • Low operating costs

Boyd added that Florida is "front and center" in terms of growth, with an "influx of people, young talent and corporate investment.”
