SARASOTA, Fla. – Ian Black Real Estate (Ian-Black.com), a Sarasota-based commercial real estate firm, was recently selected as the new property management and leasing firm for Kane Plaza, located at 1 South School Avenue in downtown Sarasota.
TerraCap Management owns Kane Plaza, a 84,296-square-foot 10-story office tower. The property currently has about 16,000 square feet available for lease.
“I believe that Ian Black Real Estate is the perfect choice to lease and manage this asset,” said Stephen Good, Partner, Director of Asset management at TerraCap Management. “The firm has a strong team of real estate professionals and extensive experience with leasing and managing real estate locally.”
Ian Black, Steve Horn and Melissa Harris are the leasing agents for the plaza while Marci Marsh, an IBRE Partner and Jodi Whitworth, the firm’s Senior Commercial Property Manager, are the property managers for the project.
Ian Black Real Estate is also expanding and relocating its corporate headquarters from 1075 Central Ave. to Kane Plaza. The firm will move into a 4,000-square-foot space, a 1,000-square-foot increase from the company’s current building, on the 6th floor of the building in early 2016.
“We are excited to assist TerraCap Management in repositioning and renovating Kane Plaza to increase its prominence in an emerging location in this market,” said Ian Black, managing member of Ian Black Real Estate. “This is a wonderful opportunity to also expand our offices as a direct response to our firm’s growth. In our current building, we don’t have the capacity to hire any additional agents, and in our new location, we can continue to add to our award winning team.”
The building currently occupied by Ian Black Real Estate on Central Avenue is available for lease.
