Thompson Coe has renewed their 69,130-square-foot office lease at Plaza of the Americas at 700 N. Pearl Street in downtown Dallas. CBRE brokered the deal on behalf of the nationally recognized law firm while Transwestern represented ownership in lease negotiations.
Harlan Davis, Phil Puckett and Jeff Ellerman with CBRE in Dallas represented Thompson Coe. Transwestern’s Kim Brooks, Justin Miller, Paul Wittorf, Laney Underwood and Ford Childress represented the building owners, a partnership between M-M Properties and Invesco Real Estate.
Thompson Coe, which has occupied floors 23-25 since 2002 made the decision to sign the multi-year lease extension because of the central location, the ability to modernize their space and the high concentration of amenities within the building.
“We wanted to identify the best location for our business to thrive,” said Shawn Phelan, chair of the firm’s management committee. “After reviewing our options, it was clear that staying in the Plaza of the Americas would allow us to both meet the needs of our clients and help us create a space that would attract and retain top talent.”
Thompson Coe is recognized for its civil litigation capabilities, expertise in insurance law and diverse group of attorneys. Founded in Dallas in 1951, the firm has expanded to five offices across Texas, Louisiana and Minnesota. Their Dallas office serves as their largest location nationally.
Steps away from the DART Pearl Street Station in the Dallas Arts District, Plaza of the Americas is a premier mixed-use development containing two 25-story office towers. The recently refurbished Marriott City Centre, numerous retail and restaurant options, and an indoor urban garden are all connected by a 13-story glass atrium, bringing every amenity today’s occupants desire within footsteps.
“We know there are a lot of options in the market and are happy that after evaluating the options, Thompson Coe recognized the value in remaining at Plaza of the Americas,” said Joel McCarty, principal with M-M Properties. “We greatly appreciate Thompson Coe’s continued interest and confidence in this location.”
