Intellectual Ventures is the global leader in the business of invention. They collaborate with leading inventors, partner with pioneering companies and invest both expertise and capital in the process of invention to energize and streamline an invention economy that will drive innovation around the world. They had five Bellevue offices, three of which were going to be condemned by Sound Transit for a new light rail station.


Our team stayed nimble to adapt to IV’s data-driven culture and decision-making process. We successfully completed a site selection process to find a new co-location facility, while negotiating several short-term lease renewals and navigating the eminent domain process with Sound Transit. The new Intellectual Ventures Laboratory facility required creativity and an open mind; an old 50,000 SF office/warehouse building Kinzer discovered could be expanded to accommodate the 95,000 SF requirement and a conversion of the warehouse to a world-class lab would help recruit the top inventors on a global basis.

Temporary Office Closure

Kinzer Partners’ office is closed temporarily in order to keep our employees safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. The safety of our employees, clients, partners, and vendors are of the utmost importance.

While we might not physically be sitting at our desks, we are still connected and available to assist you with any commercial real estate struggles you are having. We’d venture to say our work from home (WFH) dress codes might be ten times better than that in the office! A small solace during this crazy time.

If you have questions on anything regarding your real estate and how it is/has/will be changing in the current environment, don’t hesitate to reach out. We might not have all the answers but we will navigate the unknown right alongside you, offering support and virtual HH drinks when needed.

Wishing you safety, health and ask you to keep washing those hands!
