Law Firm to Expand Lease in SouthPark Towers
Cushman & Wakefield has arranged a 10,900-square-foot lease renewal and expansion for Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm at SouthPark Towers I in Charlotte’s SouthPark submarket. Tenant Representative Specialist Keith Bell CCIM, SIOR, of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant in the lease negotiations and Anne Vulcano and Stephanie Spivey of CBRE represented the landlord, CSHV SouthPark, LLC.
“We pull talent from a wide geographic radius, so the central location and accessibility are key, as is the diversity of retail and restaurant options all around us,” said Steve Garfinkel, Managing Partner of Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm. “We appreciate that we have room to grow here. Our staff will grow to more than 50 professionals this year, and we anticipate additional growth in the future.”
Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm is leveraging the opportunity in the lease renewal to expand and modernize the office space, to enhance the efficiency of its operations and to improve the office environment and work experience for its staff.
“We value our people above all else, and SouthPark Towers structured the lease in a way that facilitated our investment in a substantial improvement in workplace design and quality,” Garfinkel added.
The 13-story SouthPark Towers I, located at 6100 Fairview Road, totals 235,000 square feet, has been Energy Star Rated for the last five years and received LEED Silver certification in 2016. Amenities of this two-building project include Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Zoe’s Café, a conference facility, two covered parking decks, plaza with tree-shaded benches, on-site management and a sundries shop with dry cleaning service.
“Garfinkel Immigration Law Firm continues to grow as a result of the excellent leadership at the firm,” Bell said. “The firm wanted to remain in SouthPark and has always enjoyed their location in SouthPark Towers. CalSTRS made it an easy decision for them to stay by offering flexibility with staging their growth and build-out.”
