From the San Luis Obispo Tribune:
MindBody, a growing San Luis Obispo-based software company, wants to expand its footprint by nearly 60,000 square feet on the south side of Tank Farm Road and hire up to 250 additional employees.
Plans for a two-story office building, a large outdoor plaza, and a four-level parking structure on a 3.5-acre site are circulating through the city’s Planning Department.
The new headquarters will be built to face the buildings the company already occupies to the east at 4051 Broad St. to create a campus setting. It will include a space for child care and cafeteria in addition to conference and work space. NKT Commercial will develop the building and lease it to MindBody.

With a local builder in place, Serra Meadows, the residential neighborhood to be built on Prado Road east of Higuera Street in San Luis Obispo, will be under construction in the spring.
Model homes are expected to be available for viewing early next year.
Mangano Homes is now building the neighborhood, after MD2 of Camarillo and Los Angeles-based Resmark Land and Housing, an equity investment capital and asset management firm, decided to end their partnership.
In a statement, Mike Zarola, Resmark’s senior vice president of project management, said MD2 “moved the community forward through a number of significant hurdles and that the agreement with MD2 Homes was ended by mutual agreement.”
RRM recently attended the ground breaking ceremony for IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer based in Paso Robles. The new 30,000 sf facility will double its current square footage.
“The groundbreaking of our new building could not have come soon enough,” added Flamm. “With nearly 100 employees at our center of operations, we are at capacity. Add to the equation all the recent employees and projected hires we plan to add to the IQMS team and we are practically bursting at the seams. We joke internally that at the rate we are growing, as soon as we move into the new building, we are going to have to immediately begin construction on a third!”
