Employee Travel and Expense Management Innovator Signs 10-Year Lease in the 22-Story Office Tower

BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun. 20, 2012-- Kilroy Realty Corporation (NYSE: KRC) today announced that it has signed a 10-year lease for 123,000 square feet with Concur (NASDAQ:CNQR), a leading provider of integrated travel and expense management solutions.

“We’re delighted that Concur has chosen to relocate to Key Center and work with KRC in creating its new headquarters in Bellevue,” said Mike Shields, Senior Vice President at KRC. The Concur lease at Key Center, located at 601 108th Ave. NE in Bellevue, represents the largest lease transaction completed in Downtown Bellevue since 2009.

Concur joins a balanced roster of tenants at Key Center including financial services firms Merrill Lynch and UBS, as well as other technology tenants including Exact Target. With the execution of the Concur lease, Key Center will be approximately 93% leased.

“As part of our search criteria, we wanted to ensure we had a centrally-located headquarters facility that would support our growth and provide a great work environment for Concur employees. We’re thrilled with the location,” said Concur Executive Vice President of Operations, Scott Torrey.

“The greater Seattle area is one of the best examples of a West Coast urban environment that draws business innovators and their tech-savvy employees with a high energy, well-integrated work, live and play environment,” said KRC President and CEO John Kilroy, Jr. We are on track to own 1.7 million square feet in the Seattle market and we anticipate future growth given our positive view of the market’s fundamentals and our on-the-ground management team with strong local knowledge.”
