In creating the subsidiary Soar Automotive to support new business, Soar Technology was challenged to find space in a short period of time. Our team's support, knowledge, and resources offered the expeditious service that found the right space at the right time.

I'm happy to announce that Plante Moran Cresa's client Soar Automotive Inc. (SoarAuto), subsidiary of Soar Technology Inc. (SoarTech), has completed a successful move into a new research and development facility in Ann Arbor.

SoarAuto, a company specializing in intelligent software design for vehicles, was challenged to find space in a submarket of Ann Arbor with vacancy just slightly above 3%. With a time-sensitive new business concept 60 to 90 days away from launching — coupled with the requirement to maintain proximity to its headquarters — this seemed like a tall task.

As the lead on the site selection project, the Plante Moran Cresa team and I helped SoarAuto identify sites that fit its needs, conduct site tours to evaluate each option, and ultimately follow through to the successful execution of the lease agreement. Our team's support, knowledge, and resources offered the expeditious service that found the right space at the right time.

The new location is located at 1665 Highland Drive off South State Street in Ann Arbor.

To the SoarAuto and SoarTech team: Congratulations on your move! The new space looks great.
