MOZMoz is getting a new home. The Seattle maker of inbound marketing software has secured a lease for 50,000 square feet in downtown Seattle at Second and Spring— ending a months-long office space hunt for the fast growing company.

The new offices at 1100 Second Avenue are just four blocks south from the company’s current headquarters, split between two buildings in a total of 18,000 square feet. Moz is set to take the fourth and fifth floors in the  building in January.

Sarah Bird, chief operations officer at Moz, said they are excited about the new space which they hope to build in a style that “reflects our values, personality, and methods of work.”

“Can’t wait to have the team under one roof, space to hold company meetings and community events, improved technical amenities — video studio, audio studio, user lab, better web conferencing, enough refrigerators for all our food — and more flexible work spaces to accomodate different productivity styles,” said Bird.

Moz, which changed its name from SEOmoz in late May, employs about 130 people and boasts over 20,000 customers. It raised $18 million in venture funding from Brad Feld’s Foundry Group, Ignition Partners and others last year.

The company is hosting its annual Mozcon conference in Seattle this week.

    Maybe we should take your current space. Your first one has worked well and were bursting at the seams!

    Wait a minute — is this story about Mozilla, Moz, or Doz? I’m confused.

      Mental wounds not healing
      Who and what’s to blame
      I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

      Oh… that’s Ozzy

    I believe this should be Second and Spring instead of Second and Spruce.
