Salesforce Puts Its Name on Another Building

Salesforce recently unveiled it’s regional headquarters in Indianapolis, Indiana. What was once the Chase Tower, has been renovated and renamed to Salesforce Tower. The similarities between the new Salesforce Tower in Indianapolis and the new Salesforce Tower in San Francisco go well beyond just the building having the name Salesforce on it. Both buildings are the tallest in their respective states. Both buildings are being constructed (or renovated) to be “warm and friendly, almost more residential than what you would expect from a corporate environment” according to Salesforce Executive Vice President of Global Real Estate, Elizabeth Pinkham. Both buildings will have Mindfulness zones, rooms strictly dedicated for employee meditation. To top both buildings off, literally, on the top floor of each building is the Ohana Floor, which will serve as a communal spaces for team meetings and events. Keeping with the company’s community-centric mantra and Marc Benioff’s love of Hawaiian culture, the Ohana floors (Ohana means “family” in Hawaiian) will also be available to nonprofit groups and nongovernmental organizations to utilize rent free.
