The Design Center of the Americas in Dania Beach, an online retailer of pet supplies, leased an additional 27,200 square feet at its headquarters building in Dania Beach, the Design Center of the Americas (DCOTA).

The lease deal brought the company’s total space at the DCOTA to 100,000 square feet, according to a news release by a corporate affiliate of developer Charles S. Cohen, who owns the building.

The news release by Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation described the lease as “long-term” but did not disclose the terms.

According to the release, the asking rate at DCOTA’s “B” building at 1855 Griffin Road is $36 per square foot.

The lease deal indicates will remain in its Dania Beach headquarters for a while despite the sale of the company last spring to Phoenix-based pet supplies retailer PetSmart, which reportedly paid $3.35 billion for the South Florida company.

In August, announced plans to move its customer-service operations from DCOTA to Hollywood. The relocation would put 1,100 employees of at the Hollywood Hills Plaza at the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Park Road, making the company one of the city’s largest employers.
