Telvista renews lease in Danville and plans to expand
The commercial real estate company JLL said Monday that Telvista Inc., has renewed its lease and plans to expand employment by about 300 people at its call center in Danville.
Telvista is a Dallas-based call center outsourcing firm. It will continue to occupy 62,000 square feet of office space at 119 Cane Creek Blvd., which is owned by Danville’s Industrial Development Authority. The company also plans to bring about 300 new jobs to the area.
Speaking about JLL’s announcement, Gov. Terry McAuliffe said in a statement, “Telvista has thrived in Danville since opening its facility in April 2005, and we celebrate the addition of 300 new jobs in a region that continues to rebound economically. Creating jobs of the 21st century that are not tied to federal contracts will help us build a new Virginia economy …”
Telvista's decision to put the new jobs in Danville came down to the center’s location and labor availability, as well as its investment in the property.
“Since launching the Danville operation in 2005, the Danville community has provided the right mix of labor availability, quality and cost structure,” David Arellano, Telvista’s chief operating officer, said in a statement. “These conditions made the placement of these jobs in Danville a straightforward, optimal decision.”
JLL’s Jim Clarke, Allen Tucker, Steve Thelen and Rachel Brown represented Telvista in the lease transaction. The landlord, the Industrial Development Authority of Danville was self-represented.
JLL is a professional real estate services and investment management firm with more than 200 offices and annual fee revenue of $4 billion.
