Vancouver-based mobile game developer Kabam has secured a lease for 105,000 square feet of office space at Vancouver Centre II (VCII).

The project, which is being developed by GWL Realty Advisors, has a targeted completion date of 2021. VCII will be the first office tower completed in the current cycle of downtown office development.

The 33-storey tower is currently under construction at 753 Seymour Street. Kabam will be the office tower’s lead tenant, leasing close to a third of the building’s 345,000-square-foot floor space across seven floors.

Founded in 2006, Kabam has become a global leader in multi-player mobile games with blockbuster releases such as Marvel Contest of Champions, which has had more than 168 million downloads worldwide since 2014.

With over 400 employees across its Vancouver, San Francisco and Austin offices, Kabam sees Vancouver as a key part of its long-term expansion plans.

As VCII’s major tenant, Kabam will have access a number of amenities, including the 29th floor Skyline Rooftop Deck and a fitness facility.

“We were thrilled to be able to assist Kabam with such an exciting project, and we’re happy to have found a great option like VCII,” says Matt Carlson, Vice President, Colliers International Canada.

“It was also very refreshing to see Kabam’s leadership take an employee-first approach, by asking what their real estate can do to improve the overall workplace experience for their team, and how they can attract and retain the best talent in the industry.”
