Lawyers Gear Up for Downtown Expansion
Who’s going to drive a lot of Miami office leasing in 2015? A lot of lawyers, says CREC president Carol Brooks. As it becomes an international hub city, Miami’s legal sector is thriving, allowing law firms to grow while making forward-looking improvements to their offices, she tells us. Carol and SVP Steven Hurwitz recently repped Stearns Weaver Miller Weissler Alhadeff & Sitterson's renewal and expansion to 110k SF at Museum Tower (150 W Flagler St).
Though Stearns Weaver Miller could have moved to any number of Class-A buildings in Downtown Miami, Carol explains, they're doubling down on Flagler Street because they want to build further on the investment they’ve made in their current space. “They also believe the location puts them in position to grow,” she says. Gaedeke Group VP Kirk Fetter repped the building owner, Gaedeke Holdings Ltd.
