TAMPA, FL, April 13, 2010-- Lane Witherspoon & Carswell Commercial Real Estate Advisors has achieved 100% occupancy at Port Ybor's 437,600-square foot business park (above centered photo) with the recent negotiation of a new 16,537 square foot long-term lease for InStar Services Group, L.P in Port Ybor Building 2.

Managing Director Clay Witherspoon (top right photo) and Director Trey Carswell  (top left photo) of Lane Witherspoon & Carswell negotiated the transaction on behalf of the property owner, ING Clarion.
