CHICAGO—VelocityEHS, a growing Chicago-based software provider, has decided to move its global headquarters from 350 N. Orleans St. in River North to a new space across the street in the Merchandise Mart. The company will sublease more than 90,000 square feet of the Motorola Mobility top floor offices, further boosting the building’s reputation as a hub for the city’s tech scene.

Company officials say that recent regulatory changes and increased corporate focus on safety and sustainability has helped VelocityEHS experience steady growth. The company provides firms with environmental, health, safety and sustainability software, and since 2014, it has added 100 jobs in its Chicago office, bringing the total to more than 300 employees. The larger space in the Mart will accommodate that growth and provide room for its continued expansion. Officials expect they will complete the move in early 2016.
