Bradford Allen Realty Services Managing Director Andrew DeMoss has completed 23 lease transactions on behalf of Detroit-based, Farbman Group during the past 12 months at 79 W. Monroe and 209 W. Jackson. Bradford Allen has brought the two buildings’ occupancies to 98 percent and 84 percent, respectively.
“Ownership’s ability to do quick, hassle free deals at a competitive price point has triggered our success at both buildings,” DeMoss said. “This same model helped us raise occupancy to 98 percent at 216 W. Jackson, a former Farbman property, before it sold earlier last year.”
Most recently, digital marketing agency, Brickfish signed a 12,770-square-foot lease to occupy the entire third floor at 209 W. Jackson. Danny Nikitas, Konstantine Sepsis and Doug Noble of MB Real Estate represented Brickfish in the transaction. 209 W. Jackson is a 12-story, 143,000-square-foot, brick clad masonry building distinguished by its granite-faced bronze-highlighted columns and multi-colored terrazzo lobby.
79 W. Monroe, a 200,000-square-foot, 13 story structure located at Monroe and Clark streets, recognized for its exterior aesthetics and landmark weather bell, added 14 tenants to its roster in 2013. Total Support Solutions also recently signed a 12,300-square-foot lease to occupy the entire fifth floor. The tenant was represented by Shawn Sullivan of Macklin Advisors.
“Andy’s comprehensive leasing and marketing efforts and direct outreach to the brokerage community has helped to significantly increase these building’s occupancies,” added Jeffrey Bernstein, principal and co-founder of Bradford Allen who leads the firm’s growing agency practice.
Bradford Allen was appointed leasing agent of 209 W. Jackson in 2012 and 79 W. Monroe in 2011. DeMoss exclusively represents building ownership along with Bradford Allen associate Grace Casella.
