    SARASOTA, Fla. (February 27, 2017) – Ian Black Real Estate has been named the exclusive property manager for the iconic Sarasota Herald-Tribune building in downtown Sarasota. The 72,000-square-foot property, located at 1741 Main Street, is currently listed for sale or lease and is expected to be completely vacant by the end of June 2017.

    Ian Black Real Estate and JLL will handle the leasing of the property, while Ian Black Real Estate will lead the property management. The boutique real estate firm currently manages nearly 800,000 square feet of commercial real estate space in the greater Sarasota area.

    “Our property management portfolio has certainly been growing over the last several years,” said Ian Black, partner at Ian Black Real Estate. “We like to think we take a personal interest in the properties we manage and treat them as our own. This translates to a high level of service that our clients have come to expect.”

    The Sarasota Herald-Tribune previously occupied the building. However, the organization decided in August to move operations to the SunTrust Bank building next door. Tenant Iberia Bank will also be vacating the property in May, freeing up another 12,500 square feet of space.

    “I don’t remember the last time we had a stand-alone property of this size available in downtown Sarasota,” said Steve Horn, partner at Ian Black Real Estate, who is co-listing the property with Brent Miller at JLL. “This is a great opportunity for a company looking for a corporate headquarters. There’s ample parking and the location couldn’t be better.”
