Top South Florida Office Leasing Team Brings Two Tenants to Broward’s Largest Office Tower
FT. LAUDERDALE, Florida – Cushman & Wakefield announced today that the commercial real estate services firm has arranged two leases at BayView Corporate Tower in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Combined, the leases total 20,198 square feet.
Deanna Lobinsky and Chase Kulp of Cushman & Wakefield represented Somerset Properties, a full-service real estate company that operates in the eastern United States which owns and manages the building, in the lease negotiations.
“The leasing activity we have experienced during the pandemic reaffirms our commitment to market-leading properties like Bayview in top tier markets throughout Florida,” said Jennifer Wierman, a Principal at Somerset Properties. “It also reinforces our core philosophy of treating our tenants like partners and striving to make each lease a ‘win-win’ result for all parties involved.”
A global manufacturing company signed a long-term 15,913-square-foot lease and Oakmont Public Adjusting, a loss consulting and public adjusting firm, signed a 4,285-square-foot lease.
"These transactions were negotiated amid COVID-19, which shows the significance of having top-tier amenities in desirable locations,” Lobinsky said. “These factors will remain a driver for tenants as the end of the pandemic nears and tenants begin to focus on where and how their employees will work."
