A rapidly growing Birmingham-based company has relocated its headquarters.
Southern Veterinary Partners, a BBJ FastTrack 30 company, moved from the Synovus building at 800 Shades Creek Parkway to the Lakeshore Park Plaza at 2204 Lakeshore Drive.
About 120 of the company’s 5,330 employees have moved into the new space, and finishing touches on the the 37,013-square-foot office are underway. The office is the former location for Milo’s Tea.
CEO Jay Price said the move, which more than doubles the company’s headquarter office square footage, can promote growth for SVP.
“We currently partner with 232 veterinary hospitals and are growing more each month,” he said. “This new location allows us to add additional space for our team, meeting rooms and collaboration areas. Other benefits of this amazing new space include a huge break room, one room specifically for free snacks, large kitchen, training space, plentiful free parking, amazing views from our meetings room of the lush forest area surround the Homewood Shades Creek Greenway — aka the Lakeshore Trail.”
Price said the move was necessary because the company, which is a BBJ Best Places to Work honoree, had grown to the point it was taking four floors at the Synovus building.
“The Lakeshore Park Plaza space provided us the opportunity to expand our footprint for our growing teams on one floor in one contiguous space,” he said. “The building is less than a mile from our previous location, and it is conveniently situated near Highways 31 and 280. We were keeping our eyes open for a new space for several years. When we saw this space, we knew we had to have it.”
