Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 27, 2017
Savills Studley, the leading commercial real estate firm specializing in tenant representation, announced today that it has arranged a 15-year lease of approximately 30,000 square feet for law firm Bondurant Mixson & Elmore to remain at One Atlantic Center.
Savills Studley Executive Vice President and Atlanta Market Leader Chris White and Krystina Colyer, Associate Director, represented the tenant in the transaction.
“We are proud to represent one of the most distinguished law firms in Atlanta on an important transaction for them,” said White. “We are extremely pleased that we could work closely together with the firm and achieve results that will benefit them.”
Partners Ronan Doherty and H. Lamar “Mickey” Mixson led the negotiations on behalf of Bondurant Mixson & Elmore.
“Bondurant Mixson & Elmore is very pleased to have reached an agreement to extend our lease at One Atlantic Center for 15 years. As we celebrate the firm’s 40th Anniversary this year, we look back fondly at being one of the first tenants in this landmark Atlanta building,” said Doherty. “Our lawyers, our staff, and most importantly our clients, have all enjoyed working on and winning some of the most important litigation matters in Georgia history at this location. We’re very proud to have built one of the top litigation boutiques in the country in this space. And because we continue to see a bright future for the firm, we secured our space here for the long-term.”
Bondurant, Mixson & Elmore was one of the first tenants to occupy One Atlantic Center (formerly called IBM Tower) back in 1987. This is the first lease signed by Starwood Capital since taking ownership of One Atlantic Center last October. With the lease set to expire in 2018 – and a renewal option notice quickly approaching – Savills Studley overcame several obstacles to help its client stay in One Atlantic Center with a great outcome.
When negotiations began early last year, Savills Studley worked with Hines, the building’s owner. However, once the building was sold to Starwood Capital, negotiations were taken over by the new owner.
