Cushman & Wakefield of Arizona, Inc. negotiated a 17,998-square-foot lease for Prosper Marketplace, a peer-to-peer lending company that opened a new office at Airport Tech Center, 4127 E. Van Buren St.It is the first office outside the company’s San Francisco headquarters. The Prosper platform connects people who want to borrow money with people who want to invest money, offering an alternative to traditional banking institutions.“They initially toured over 20 locations and buildings,” said Larry Downey, Vice Chairman for Cushman & Wakefield of Arizona. “Airport Tech Center gave Prosper Marketplace a central location within the city and great access to the transportation freeway corridors. This is a very functional building for them and gives them the flexibility and room to expand within the project.”Located minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the new location is currently recruiting, with plans to expand to 40 employees in its first year. The office will eventually employ about 150 people.“The Prosper platform has grown more than 400 percent over the past year, and we expect continued growth in 2014. Prosper Marketplace is excited to open a new office in Phoenix to support our growth, and we are looking forward to being part of the local business community,” said Josh Tonderys, Chief Risk Officer, Prosper Marketplace.“We are encouraged by the expansion of companies like Prosper Marketplace,” said Barry Broome, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “The new jobs that will be available at the Phoenix office show a transformative shift from traditional back office jobs, providing exciting new opportunities for the existing technical talent in the region.”Downey and Curtis Chickerneo of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant. The landlord, Arden Realty Limited Partnership, was represented by Jerry Roberts and Corey Hawley of CBRE. Occupancy is in late July.

Associated Press Television News Written By First Published: 23rd March, 2020 14:22 IST The Australian Olympic Committee is advising its athletes to prepare for an Olympics in 2021.Ian Chesterman, Australia’s team leader for Tokyo, on Monday said “It’s clear the games can’t be held in July” because of the coronavirus pandemic.“Our athletes have been magnificent in their positive attitude to training and preparing, but the stress and uncertainty has been extremely challenging for them,” Chesterman said in a statement. “They have also shouldered the burden of concern for their peers around the world. That has been a consistent message to me.”AOC chief executive Matt Carroll said Australia had athletes based overseas and training in central locations around the country and “with travel and other restrictions this becomes an untenable situation,.”The Australian committee’s executive board agreed unanimously in an emergency teleconference Monday that “an Australian team could not be assembled in the changing circumstances at home and abroad” and decided to notify athletes as soon as possible.The Canadian Olympic Committee had earlier said it won’t send athletes to the Tokyo Games unless they’re postponed for a year.The International Olympic Committee on Sunday confirmed for the first time it was considering a postponement, a decision which could take weeks to reach. The Tokyo Games are scheduled to start July 24.Until late last week the Australian committee was supporting the IOC’s plans to go ahead as scheduled with the games, but there’s been considerable backlash since then from athletes and some sports and more severe travel restrictions imposed by Australian federal and state governments.“Moving the world’s biggest sporting event, which involves so many sports, athletes, the world’s media, sponsors and the rest … is not easy to do,” Carroll said. “Last Thursday was a different set of circumstances to standing here today. There has been dramatic change in our own country and across the world.
