RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Fallon Company, a national commercial real estate owner and developer that specializes in mixed-use urban development, today announced a major lease agreement with Pendo, creator of the leading product cloud for digital products and data-driven product teams. Pendo will relocate its corporate headquarters to 301 Hillsborough Street, the first of three planned towers that will comprise The Fallon Company’s transformative 1.86-acre mixed-use development in Raleigh.
Pendo’s new headquarters will occupy five floors and 125,000 square feet of the 300,000-square-foot first-class commercial tower and will feature a large private outdoor terrace overlooking the dynamic downtown neighborhoods that surround the development. Completion of the 19-story high rise is scheduled for the last quarter of 2021. Pendo will move all employees from its current Fayetteville Street office to its future corporate headquarters in early 2022.
Pendo, the product cloud company, helps digital product teams and application owners deliver software experiences that users love. Founded in 2013 in the heart of Raleigh, Pendo has raised $106 million in the last four years, with backing from investors like Battery Ventures, Spark Capital, Meritech Capital, and Sapphire Ventures.

It counts 337 employees, who work in six offices around the world: Raleigh, San Francisco, New York City, Herzliya, Israel, London, and Sheffield, U.K.
Pendo’s decision to move its headquarters to 301 Hillsborough reaffirms its commitment to the city of its founding. In December 2018, Pendo announced plans to add 590 jobs to its Raleigh operations over the next five years.
