The Office Lease of the Year Award recognizes the work of Matt Carlson on Vancouver-based mobile developer, Kabam’s, expansion with the long-term lease of 105,000 square feet across seven floors at Vancouver Centre II (VCII). Founded in 2006, Kabam is a forward-thinking, industry-leading firm that has become a global leader in multi-player mobile games. With over 400 employees across its Vancouver, San Francisco and Austin offices, Kabam sees Vancouver as a key part of its long term expansion plans. As VCII’s lead tenant, Kabam will have access to first-class amenities in the cutting-edge Vancouver office tower such as the 29th Floor Skyline Rooftop Deck, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and dog-friendly facilities.
