Colliers International Tampa Bay represents tenant
TAMPA, Fla. (November 11, 2013) – Banker Lopez Gassler P.A., a Florida-based law firm, has leased a 38,800-square-foot office space in the M & I Bank Plaza, located in downtown Tampa.
The transaction is the largest lease in the Tampa central business district for Colliers International Tampa Bay so far in 2013.
Mia Jarrell, Managing Director of Office Services for Colliers International Tampa Bay, represented the tenant. Mercedes Angell, Senior Director of Office Brokerage for Cushman & Wakefield, represented the landlord, 501 East Kennedy Associates, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company.
The 20-floor office building houses tenants such as Bruegger’s Bagels and Fowler White Boggs. Banker Lopez Gassler leased the space for its headquarters. The law firm also has locations throughout Florida in St. Petersburg, Orlando, Fort Myers, Tallahassee and Fort Lauderdale.
“In the search for the right space in the right location, BLG explored downtown and the Westshore submarket,” said Jarrell. “In the end they chose to be near the courts and to support the continued growth of Tampa’s central business district.”
The office property is located at 501 East Kennedy Boulevard, Suite 1600 in Tampa.
