Virginia successfully competed with other states in the mid-Atlantic and Southeast for the project.


GRP provided regional and local information regarding workforce and quality of life assets to ensure CoStar would have a sufficient talent pool to attract to its new office.

“The strong partnerships we have established with the Commonwealth of Virginia, the City of Richmond and institutions of higher education such as VCU, will be critical for our continued growth,” said Andy Florance, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CoStar Group. “Virginia, Richmond and Costar Group all have bright futures ahead, and we are excited to grow together.”
