Brighthouse Financial to lease 20,763 square feet in Tampa Oaks One


TAMPA, FL, March 28, 2018 – Brighthouse Financial, a major provider of annuities and life insurance in the U.S., has agreed to lease 20,763 square feet in Tampa Oaks One at 12802 Tampa Oaks Boulevard in Tampa, Florida. JLL provided tenant representation services to Brighthouse Financial, led by Mitchell Konsker, Vice Chairman, and Benjamin Bass, Senior Vice President, both of the JLL New York offices, and Tampa Managing Director Brent Miller and Senior Vice President Lee Winter.

JLL Senior Vice Presidents Jim Moler and Deana Beer of the firm's Tampa office represent the landlord, The Dilweg Companies.

"The accessibility to a diverse employee demographic pool, expansive floor plates and higher parking ratios make this area popular among firms with larger employee bases," says Moler of Tampa's I-75 Corridor submarket, where the average firm footprint is over 13,000 square feet.

"The area has attracted large corporate occupiers such as Citibank, Humana, and Syniverse Technologies, as well as nearly a dozen expansions by area firms over the last 12 months, leaving few large blocks of space available on market," adds Moler.

Dilweg acquired Tampa Oaks One in June 2017 as part of a 698,000-square-foot Tampa portfolio purchase including Lakeview at Hidden River, Palm Court at Hidden River, Westlake Corporate Centers I & II, Orion Center and 9000 Town Center Parkway.
