ANSYS, a developer and marketer of engineering simulation software, has expanded its headquarters space at Zenith Ridge in Southpointe II, a luxury office campus in Pittsburgh.

The company currently occupies 186,000 square feet at 2600 ANSYS Drive and plans to lease an additional 31,000 square feet at building II, located at 2400 Zenith Ridge Road. The five-story building was constructed in 2014 and offers a total of 150,000 square feet. Other tenants include Regus, EQT, Wells Fargo, Langan, Aladdin Food Management and RBC Wealth Management, according to Yardi Matrix. This expansion makes the Burns and Scalo Real Estate owned-Zenith Ridge fully leased. The site comprises three buildings totaling 486,000 square feet and features amenities including:

  • free parking
  • outdoor patio and grills
  • fire pits
  • ping-pong table
  • walking trails
  • five exercise stations
  • 24/7 management

“While partnering with JLL to evaluate our options, we found Zenith Ridge had the amenities and elements we were seeking to facilitate growth and flexibility,” said Richard Castman, senior director, Global Procurement and Real Estate, ANSYS, in prepared remarks. “ANSYS is excited about expanding our operations to Zenith Ridge, especially as the park continues to grow with an assorted mix of companies.”

JLL’s Managing Director Dan Adamski led the site consulting efforts, on behalf of ANSYS. Also this month, JLL represented Puma in leasing 24,000 square feet at SL Green Realty Corp.’s 609 Fifth Ave. in Midtown Manhattan. The brand will occupy three floors at the site of retailer American Girl’s former location.
