Glankler Brown, PLLC has signed a 10-year, 32,000- square-foot lease at Highwoods Properties’ 6000 Poplar Avenue office building, consolidating its practice onto one floor in the Triad Centre I building.
Bill Bradley, Chief Manager of Glankler Brown, said: “We spent more than one year studying whether to move our central office to a different location. We ultimately concluded that we could meet a number of business objectives by the consolidation of our firm in one location. We concluded that the most sensible place for a central office was at 6000 Poplar.”
John Mercer represented Highwoods Properties during the leasing process. Tracy Speake with Paradigm Realty Advisors, LLC represented Glankler Brown.
“Glankler was able to take advantage of the best office real estate market in 20 years. Our firm is very proud to have represented them in this transaction,” Speake said.
Glankler Brown has leased over 6,000 square feet at the Triad Centre I address for more than 20 years.
“Perhaps the most attractive aspect of relocating our downtown office in 6000 Poplar is the rather unique opportunity to consolidate all of our attorneys on a single floor. No building in downtown Memphis and few in the other areas of Memphis were constructed with as large a floor plan as are available at 6000 Poplar. There are significant operating efficiencies that arise from a single floor configuration.
It is bittersweet to leave our longtime home at One Commerce Square. We enjoyed the river views and the positive aspects of being downtown, however, we strongly believe that everyone being together in one office will be tremendous for our attorneys,” said Bradley.
“Glankler Brown has been a long standing client and one of the premier tenants in One Commerce Square. Commercial Alliance Management has enjoyed a great working relationship with Glankler Brown at One Commerce Square and they will be missed,” said Mark Jenkins, Executive VP, Commercial Alliance Management.
