A prominent national law firm is moving its Tampa office.
Bartlett Loeb Hinds Thompson & Angelos has leased 5,346 square feet of space on the fourth floor of the Thousand & One tower in the city’s Water Street district.
The firm, which specializes in business litigation, is currently in the Regions Building at 100 W. Kennedy Blvd. in downtown. It plans to move to the new office in May.
Term of the lease were not disclosed.
In addition to Tampa, the firm has another office in Florida, Stuart, as well as in Austin, Texas.
The 385,000-square-foot tower was the first to be built in downtown Tampa since 1992.
It is LEED Silver-certified and the first building in the city to earn WELL Core and Shell Certification. Among its features are 10-foot-tall floor-to-ceiling glass to maximize natural light and a series of outdoor, landscaped terraces containing rain gardens and outdoor awnings that enhance shade. The building also includes a series of green touches — from heightened air filtration indoors to pocket parks outside.
With the addition of the law firm, Strategic Property Partners Vice President of Corporate Leasing and Strategy David Bevirt says in a statement that the building’s office space is almost fully leased. SPP is Water Street’s developer.
Its current tenant roster includes ReliaQuest’s corporate headquarters, Sila Realty Trust, Northern Trust Corporation, Weatherford Capital, Suffolk Construction and Walker & Dunlop. And on the ground floor are Naked Farmer, CAVA. and Boulon Brasserie and Bakery.
But one of the main reasons the building is a popular destination is it location.
According to the SPP statement, Bartlett Loeb is moving, in part, “to leverage the vibrant neighborhood to retain and attract talent.”
Water Street is a $3 billion, 56-acre, mixed-use development just south of downtown Tampa. The 9 million-square foot district includes commercial, residential, hospitality, entertainment and retail space.
