Jones Lang LaSalle Secures 39,000 SF Lease at SunTrsut Financial Centre

GrayRobinson to move Tampa offices to iconic downtown tower

TAMPA, August 4, 2011 – Jones Lang LaSalle today announced that in October 2012 GrayRobinson, P.A. will begin leasing 38,864 square feet at Tampa’s iconic SunTrust Financial Centre Building at 401 East Jackson Street in downtown Tampa. GrayRobinson, a law firm with nine other offices statewide, will lease two entire floors over an eleven-year lease term.  The move will take the firm’s Tampa operations from its current downtown location in Tampa City Center.

"Our Tampa expansion is a result of our client's growing needs in the Tampa market," said GrayRobinson President Byrd F. "Biff" Marshall, Jr. "We are deeply committed to the Tampa community and the new office location, in the heart of Tampa, will allow us the opportunity to better serve the community."

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Sharon Bragg represented the building’s owner, Charter Hall Office REIT/Stiles, during negotiations.  John Carter with Carter & Associates represented GrayRobinson.

Owned by a joint-venture partnership between Charter Hall Office REIT and Stiles, the 36-story, 527,000-square-foot, Class A office building is located in the southeast corner of Jackson Street and Florida Avenue.  Designed by U.S.-based firm Cooper Carry, the building is leased exclusively by Jones Lang LaSalle.  In 2010, the building was designated the “Outstanding Building of the Year” by the Building Owners and Managers Association’s (BOMA) Tampa Bay chapter.

Jones Lang LaSalle has approximately 526 employees providing real estate expertise across all major markets in Florida including leasing, both tenant and landlord representation, property management, project and development services and investment sales. Jones Lang LaSalle’s leasing and management portfolio has more than doubled in the past year to 23 million square feet which includes some of the state’s most iconic buildings.  The firm was recently named one of ‘Florida’s Best Companies to Work For’ by Florida Trend magazine.
