The Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA) engaged Foundry in the selling of their previous headquarters and their relocation process.
Colorado Springs, CO & Columbus, OH
The Christian and Missionary Alliance (CMA) engaged Foundry in both the selling of their previous headquarters in Colorado Springs and the selection process in their new relocation to Columbus.
Foundry’s process included a nationwide search, evaluating the top 250 metros in the United States, an exhaustive multi-market review, and touring of over 100 lease/purchase location options.
In another great example of cross-platform collaboration, Foundry’s Real Estate, Education, and Non-Profit group worked closely with Gabe De Jesus, Brokerage Principal in the Orlando office, to facilitate the headquarters move of the Christian and Missionary Alliance family of churches from Colorado Springs to Columbus, Ohio. Serving in a tenant rep role, Foundry helped the Alliance purchase 11 acres, including a blighted former Kmart building that had been vacant for over a decade, to make way for a mixed-used development – called “Alliance Place” – set to feature housing, a conference center and hotel, in addition to the Alliance operations and other office and retail spaces.
Located in the Columbus suburb of Reynoldsburg, residents and community leaders had long since given up hope that a partner of the Alliance’s caliber would come into the equation to provide the economic injection the community had been longing for, but when Matt Messier, the “Church World” team, and others throughout the Foundry platform come together to strategize something as large as the relocation of an entire denomination’s headquarters’ operations, every involved party seems to win.
