WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. & BOCA RATON, Fla.– (December 7, 2022) — Tortoise Properties, LLC, a privately held West Palm Beach-based real estate investment and development group and PEBB Enterprises, a full-service private real estate investment company, announce the successful lease renewal for the corporate headquarters of ADT, located at 1501 Yamato Road within The Park at Broken Sound, Boca Raton, Fla. The co-owners also report the availability of 70,000 square feet of leasable office space in its West Tower.

Adjacent to The Old Course at Broken Sound, the Class A office park, owned and managed by Tortoise Properties and PEBB Enterprises, consists of 10 acres of land with a pair of Class A institutional office buildings. The buildings total 171,489 square feet connected by a “Main Street” central atrium that features best-in-class employee sought-after amenities, including a fitness center, cafeteria, coffee shop, hair salon and other lifestyle features.

The lease renewal of ADT, the most trusted name in security and headquartered on Yamato Road since 2012, includes 104,000 square feet with substantial new features and tenant improvements. Upgrades will support ADT’s reimagined office environments designed for today’s workforce preferences. New amenities will include flexible office space with meeting rooms, open lounge areas, renovated pantries and wellness spaces. Each will provide ample opportunity for employee/team interaction.

“This decision demonstrates ADT’s strong commitment to Boca Raton, where we have been operating since the 1990s, and to retaining and recruiting top talent,” said ADT Chief Administrative Officer Harriet Harty. “As we look forward to 2024 when ADT celebrates its 150th anniversary, we are well-positioned in South Florida to continue building the workplace of the future and deliver safe, smart sustainable solutions to our six million-plus customers.”

“This renewal underscores both the value of strong landlord/tenant relationships and our mutual commitment to Boca Raton and Palm Beach County, in which we both do business,” added Tortoise Properties President, CEO & Co-Founder Jake Geleerd. “With a number of interested parties looking at our 70,000 square feet of leasable space available in our West Tower, we look forward to being able to forge expanded footprints for current tenants and welcome our new ones.”

Delivering for evolving workforce priorities, PEBB Enterprises President and CEO Ian Weiner noted that “PEBB Enterprises and Tortoise Properties are known for our innovation in lease negotiations and amenities improvement programs, so that tenants will feel ‘at home’ for growth for several more lease cycles.”
