HALL Group announced today that Abacus Group, a global provider of IT services for alternative investment firms, has leased 6,891 square feet at 2401 Internet Boulevard at HALL Park. Abacus will begin occupying their new space on November 1, 2019.
“Abacus Group’s success in the IT industry can be attributed to their innovative leadership and strong brand reputation within the alternative investment industry that they serve,” said Kim Butler, HALL Group’s director of leasing. “We are thrilled to have them join us at HALL Park and know they will continue to thrive at their new home in Frisco.”
Originally founded in San Francisco in 2008 and now headquartered in New York City, Abacus first opened a satellite office in Dallas six years ago as a dedicated space for its growing remote support team and centralized location for employee training programs. Abacus has teams across the US and in the UK, and each new team member starts their Abacus career with time spent learning the firm’s systems during a training week in Dallas. In addition to an open-concept layout, private offices and break-out rooms, the new Abacus office build-out at HALL Park will include a large multi-purpose conference room designed specifically to be able to convert into a classroom-style training space.
The new office in Frisco will provide Abacus over 75 percent more square footage versus its current location, allowing the firm to plan for continued anticipated growth of its Dallas team. In a Class-A building with extensive amenities, a campus environment and prime location, Abacus is poised to continue investing in recruiting the best IT and client services talent within the Dallas area.
“Before even beginning the build-out of our new office, we hosted our annual Support Team Leadership Summit this summer at HALL Park and were very impressed by the collaborative spaces available to tenants,” said Chris Grandi, CEO at Abacus Group. “The idyllic location and breadth of amenities played a key part in our decision to lease at HALL Park. We encourage our employees to have a healthy work-life balance and focus on wellness, so I know our team is looking forward to the long list of amenities, including the in-building fitness center and expansive green space they’ll have easy access to. Frisco is one of the most prominent suburbs of the Dallas Metroplex and we look forward to growing our business at HALL Park.”
