Morgan Stanley to Move to Downtown St. Petersburg; Building to be renamed MORGAN STANLEY TOWER

150 Second Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL
Will be Renamed Morgan Stanley Tower
Formerly Wells Fargo Plaza

Larry Feldman
ST PETERSBURG, FL– Morgan Stanley has signed a long-term lease at 150 2nd Avenue North.  The Class A office building formerly known as Wells Fargo Plaza will be renamed Morgan Stanley Tower after its newest tenant.  The financial services giant will occupy multiple floors in the building.

 The ownership of 150 2nd Avenue North offered Morgan Stanley building naming rights, stunning water views of Tampa Bay and a premium downtown location across from the new Shops at St Pete (formerly BayWalk).  The building is one of downtown St. Petersburg’s best-located, premier Class A office buildings.

 “We're thrilled to have received this long term lease commitment.  Within the financial services sector, Morgan Stanley is one the most respected names in the world,” stated co-owner Larry Feldman, CEO of Feldman Equities who spearheads leasing for the building. 

“The renaming of the building as Morgan Stanley Tower provides us with terrific branding for the building and our tenants.

“Our business plan is to combine the great branding of the Morgan Stanley name with a multi-million dollar renovation that will occur during 2014.  Upon completion, the new Morgan Stanley Tower will be one of the premier buildings in St. Petersburg.”

Katie Trott
Feldman has executed over 30,000 square feet of new leases since purchasing 150 2nd Avenue North last August.  In addition to Morgan Stanley, Feldman has recently executed new leases with

City Securities is a 100 year old investment firm based in Indiana.  City Securities is a full-service personal investment adviser and wealth manager for individuals and families and experts in corporate and public finance across Indiana and throughout the Midwest.

The 17-story, 187,000 square foot office building was purchased in August of last year by a joint venture consisting of affiliates of Feldman Equities, Tower Realty Partners and Second City Capital Partners.

 “We purchased the building soon after Wells Fargo Bank vacated 22,000 square feet,” said Feldman.

  “This acquisition gave us the opportunity to do what we do best - renovating and upgrading office buildings in order to maximize their value.

Ryan Reynolds
 “We are well on our way to repeating the success we’ve had at City Center.”  In just four months ownership has increased occupancy at 150 2nd Avenue North from 65% to over 80%.

The group also owns the nearby, 242,000 square foot City Center office building where it has increased occupancy from 44% to nearly 94%.

Over the last 20 years, Feldman Equities and Tower Realty Partners have successfully joint ventured on the acquisition of millions of square feet of under-performing office buildings.

 Most recently the joint venture has partnered on City Center in downtown St Petersburg, Wells Fargo Center in downtown Tampa and Fountain Square II in Tampa’s Westshore Business District.

CFLane Expands Aggressively, Emerges as Major Apartment Manager in 2013

Melanie Gersper

 ATLANTA, GA — Less than a year after its formation, the CFLane apartment management firm closed 2013 in the midst of aggressive growth and with plans for continued strategic expansion in the new year, particularly in the mid-Atlantic region.

 CFLane was created in spring 2013 when Cocke Finkelstein Inc. (CFI), a full-service multifamily investment firm based in Atlanta, acquired Lane Company, forming a management and services subsidiary.

Before the merger, CFI had approximately 10,000 apartment units under management, while Lane Company accounted for another 18,000 units.

Since the merger, CFLane has added approximately 12,000 units to end 2013 managing 40,000 apartment units in 18 states, from Maryland to Nevada. The last three months of the year proved particularly active, as CFLane took over the management of 50 properties.

Dan Haefner
CFLane’s portfolio features all classes of apartment communities, from Class-A properties to student-housing properties and communities with substantial renovation programs, and includes communities owned by both CFI and third parties. With its growth in 2013, CFLane is now one of the 50 largest apartment managers in the country.

 “With the establishment of our firm and the brisk pace of expansion, 2013 was obviously a very exciting year for CFLane,” said Dan Haefner, president and COO of the company. 

“And we’re just getting started: as the apartment sector continues to thrive, we expect 2014 to be another year of aggressive but carefully planned growth.”

 Key hires in 2013 included the addition of Melanie Gersper as executive vice president of property management and Raymond Van Beveren as senior vice president of construction services. Both Gersper and Van Beveren were previously with Bell Partners.

 “We have quickly assembled an extremely talented and versatile management team at CFLane,” Haefner said. “With our range of skills and experience, CFLane can handle the entire spectrum of management challenges, from the lease up of a new property to the extensive rehab of an existing one.”

Raymond Van Beveren
Looking forward, CFLane expects to add more units in the mid-Atlantic markets of North Carolina and Virginia, and other states that feature numerous large metropolitan areas, favorable demographics, solid operating fundamentals and barriers to entry.

“We are extremely optimistic about the future health of the apartment sector,” Haefner said. 

“The size of the 20-to-34-year-old age bracket, a key component of the renter population, is projected to grow by more than 4 million over the next decade, while the rates of home ownership are anticipated to remain lower than historical norms.”

“When you combine these favorable market trends with our considerable experience, expertise and commitment to creating quality communities for our residents, all the pieces are in place for us to strategically grow our business, while continuing to generate outstanding returns for our partners and clients,” Haefner added.

The Six-Week Deal Quest Workspaces Leases Full Floor at 777 Brickell in Downtown Miami, FL

777 Brickell (blue building), Downtown Miami, FL

Laura Kozelouzek

Miami, FL -- Within six weeks of learning full floor tenant Jordan Burt would not be renewing their lease at 777 Brickell due to a merger with Carlton Fields, Taylor & Mathis signed Quest Workspaces to lease the 20,000 square foot space to be vacated by the law firm.

The executive suite company will open their second location in Miami’s Brickell Financial District in April moving to temporary space at the building until the new space build out is completed.

 “The same day we learned the merger had gone through we called the Quest Workspaces’ broker, Lance Benson of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, and said we have a great space for Quest if they are looking for another location on Brickell,” stated Taylor & Mathis Partner Brian Gale.

“We made one phone call and six weeks later had a signed lease.”

 The space is ideal for Quest. Former law firm space is very office intensive a necessity for an executive suite.  Taylor & Mathis also signed Quest to a 37,000 square foot renewal and expansion at Espirito Santo Plaza earlier this year.  The Taylor & Mathis’ Miami leasing team of Brian Gale and Andrew Trench worked with co-broker Benson representing Quest Workspaces, to complete the transactions.

Brian Gale
“Quest Workspaces is an emerging executive center with a trendy & modern vibe,” stated Trench. “This is not your 1980’s executive suite.  They will be a great asset to 777 Brickell which is an impeccably maintained office building with class A finishes.  Executive suites often serve as incubator space for new companies poised for growth.”

“Miami is evolving into a world class city and Brickell Avenue is setting the pulse for the area’s growth and expansion,” said Laura Kozelouzek, founder and CEO of Quest Workspaces.

“777 Brickell is a superior fusion of a chic and professional office space, in a prime location, priced at 20 percent less than our current Brickell [Espirito Santo Plaza] pricing, which will give clients the added value of a prestigious, downtown office address at a more affordable square footage price tag.” 

Quest’s seventh location in less than three years and second location on Brickell Avenue is located in the hub of downtown Miami’s financial district.

The new development solidifies Quest as the 15th largest tenant in Miami’s burgeoning business district among the ranks of Bank of America, HSBC and Florida International University. 

Andrew Trench
The new center at 777 Brickell Avenue, encompassing the entire fifth floor, will feature more than 90 offices and offers flexible workspace solutions that cater to companies of all sizes from start-ups to global brands.

The SunTrust Building at 777 Brickell Avenue is a multi-use facility with business and lifestyle amenities, gourmet restaurants including Truluck’s, a beauty salon, covered parking garage, banking with ATM and 24/7 building access and security.

 The Energy Star labeled property is within walking distance to Mary Brickell Village and is less than 10 miles from Miami International Airport.
