Dubbed as Seattle’s “startup of the year,” analytics technology company Simply Measured is packing up its Belmont Ave offices today for a move to a larger space in Belltown.
“We’re growing too fast for the space,” CEO Adam Schoenfeld tells CHS.
“It’s a high class problem.”
Schoenfeld says the company has nearly doubled its workforce in the last year. Simply Measured currently has nearly 70 employees. In January, Simply Measured raised $8 million in a round of financing to power the growth.
The maker of web analytics tools with an emphasis on social media has been operating from its Capitol Hill headquarters since winter 2012. Simply Measured launched in 2010 from a coworking space in South Lake Union. Schoenfeld said the Capitol Hill office was the company’s first real headquarters.
CHS has written about the challenges faced by companies looking for office space on the Hill. New projects like Liz Dunn’s 11th Ave office and apartment building (with mews!) are efforts to address the need.
Graham Baba Architects will be taking over the Belmont Ave space Simply Measured is leaving behind. The firm is responsible for high profile Hill projects including Melrose Market and Skillet Diner and have been credited — and sometimes blamed — for the current Seattle restaurant “look.” The architects had been ensconced in Dunn’s 12th Ave Piston Ring building below La Spiga and Plum.
