Award-Winning Colliers Tampa Bay Closes Industrial Lease
- Apr 17, 2012
Colliers International Tampa Bay has become a regular feature in local media this past month, having won six major honors at the Florida Gulfcoast Commercial Association of Realtors and Real Estate Professional’s annual Pinnacle Awards.
Colliers International Tampa Bay professionals claimed their awards during a ceremony held on March 27 at A La Carte Pavilion, with the firm’s Pat Marzulli landing the title for overall Deal of the Year for the sale of a 67,431-square-foot building set on 5.5 acres in Largo. Marzulli was also honored as the third-highest producer in the industrial category, national division.
Just last week, Colliers Tampa Bay closed a lease for 25,482 square feet of flex space at 501 Hobbs St. in Tampa. The new tenant, Florida Asset Remarketing, chose the location—which offers both office and warehouse space—in a move to accommodate its anticipated growth.
The property is compact, with 3,000 square feet of office space, and features grade-level loading in a convenient location near I-75 and I-4.
“We wanted to stay as close to the I-75 corridor as possible, as this is a desirable location for distribution-oriented businesses,” said Mike Herman, president of Florida Asset Remarketing. “And it gives us the additional office and warehouse space we need to grow.” The new property is more than double the size of the company’s previous location a few miles away.
According to an official statement, the company plans on hiring two new employees this month and intends for Florida Asset Remarketing to expand its market and take on new customers in the near future.
Ed Miller and Dee Seymour of Colliers International Tampa Bay represented the tenant, Florida Asset Remarketing, which reconditions, leases and sells copiers and copying equipment. Mark McKell of Colliers International Tampa Bay represented the landlord, Franklin Park Properties L.L.C.
