Townsquare marketing firm relocating from Ballantyne to uptown

Townsquare Interactive said Monday it will move from Ballantyne Corporate Park to an office building uptown, as the firm seeks to grow in Charlotte.

The marketing company is leasing two floors of the office building at 200 South Tryon, totaling 51,000 square feet. Townsquare Interactive will come with 200 employees, and plans to add 100 in the coming years.

“We are pleased to welcome Townsquare Interactive to Charlotte center city, where as a fast-growing tech company they will be best positioned to attract and retain the talent of our region,” said Charlotte Center City Partners president Michael Smith.

Joe Franco of Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord and Mike Fahey of CBRE represented Townsquare Interactive.

Townsquare Interactive is part of Townsquare Media, which owns and operates more than 300 radio stations in small and mid-size markets.

Townsquare Interactive creates web marketing for clients.

“The space at 200 South Tryon will give us the ability to grow at the pace we desire and give us even more opportunity to capitalize on the very intelligent and hard-working professionals that Charlotte possesses,” said Tim Pirrone, president of Townsquare Interactive.
