Another company is reaching for a piece of riverfront office space at The Waterfront Vancouver.

Chicago Title & Fidelity National Title Co. will lease 10,800 square feet on the second floor of the waterfront’s upcoming office tower, dubbed Block 6 East. About 40 people will staff it.

The title insurance falls under the umbrella of Fidelity National Financial, the largest title company in the country. Chicago Title & Fidelity National Title Co. already has four locations in Vancouver, according to its website.

Matthew London, manager of the local branches, said the company was “thrilled” to land the new space.

“Downtown Vancouver has always been our home. Now our employees will be part of this unique waterfront community and enjoy one of the few riverfront office spaces in the Portland-Vancouver metro area,” he said in a prepared statement.

It is unclear if the new office space will replace any of the current offices.

Gramor Development announced the signing Tuesday. The Tualatin, Ore., company is leading the first phases of The Waterfront Vancouver, a 32-acre development along the Columbia River. It projects to house more than 1 million square feet of office space, according to its master plan.

The signing marks the third office tenant so far heading to the riverfront, including Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty and M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust.

The office tower, Block 6 East, is expected to open in the fall. The seven-story tower is expected to offer 70,000 square feet of office space.

Its opening will follow the first grand openings of The Waterfront Vancouver. Phase 1, which includes two restaurant buildings, a 90-foot pier and a plaza, is expected to open in July.

With building in full-swing, Barry Cain, president of Gramor Development, said he expects a lot more companies to follow suit and sign office space near the water.

“We continue to have a great deal of interest and expect the remaining spaces to fill quickly,” he said in a prepared statement.
