Philadelphia, PA (June 8, 2021) — Newmark Real Estate (Newmark) announces 8,394 square feet of new office leases signed at One South Broad Street, centrally located adjacent to City Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The leases were signed to law firms Williams Cedar (3,895 square feet) and Brown & Associates (2,475 square feet) and AWS, salesforce and data Integration consulting firm rockITdata (2,024 square feet). Newmark Managing Director Matt Guerrieri and Executive Managing Director Craig Scheuerle represented the landlord, AION Partners, in the leasing.
“As trial lawyers, we could not have found a better location in Philadelphia. Our new space is bright, efficient and convenient to our staff. It is just the kind of comfortable, collegiality-promoting workplace we were seeking,” said Gerald Williams, Founding Partner at Williams Cedar.
“We are thrilled to be in our new headquarters space at One South Broad Street,” said Marlie Andersch, CEO of rockITdata. “The workspace will provide our company the base for the exponential growth we expect over the next several years.”
One South Broad Street highlights the ability to convert nearly a quarter of the building (108,418 contiguous square feet), to life sciences space. The customizable space features lab-ready infrastructure; large, efficient and flexible floor plates; significant structural live load floor capability; 16’ to 20’ clear heights accommodating small and large molecule research; existing vertical shaft capacity to accommodate lab supply and exhaust needs and more.
“One South Broad Street is ready to accommodate the R&D laboratory market,” said Guerrieri. “The speed to market of this centrally located potential conversion makes it attractive to life sciences tenants who are seeking a space solution more readily available than new construction.”
