Winstead Goes Uptown
2728 N. Harwood
The business law firm Winstead PC is trading downtown (the Renaissance Tower) for Uptown, signing a 129k SF  deal in the 10-story 2728 N. Harwood with Harwood International. It'll occupy eight floors starting in January 2013. Winstead shareholder and executive committee member Mike Alessio  tells us that 2728 Harwood  has a “very efficient building core" and the large central core at the Renaissance wasn't needed any more.
Harwood's Jihane Boury and Jessica Young
Mike tells us that the firm developed goals for its office space that were a departure from typical space conventions. Use of technology,staffing ratios, common-area use, library functionality, and sustainable design are all a part of the changing nature of the legal industry, he says. Harwood leasing and development veep Jihane Boury (here with colleague Jessica Young  overlooking 2728 Harwood) says Winstead is a perfect fit for the culture and architecture in the Harwood district. She and EVP/asset manager David Roehm negotiated the long-term lease with CBRE's Phil Puckett and Chris Herrmann, who repped Winstead.
