Travis Herring, Deanna Lobinsky, Katherine Ridgway and Chase Kulp Were Named Exclusive Leasing Agents for Steelbridge Capital’s Iconic Downtown Office Complex
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, — Cushman & Wakefield announced today that it has been named exclusive leasing agent for SunTrust at Las Olas Square, an iconic 270,000-square-foot, two-building Class A office complex located in the core of downtown Fort Lauderdale on prestigious Las Olas Boulevard.
The office leasing team of Executive Director Travis Herring, Executive Director Deanna Lobinsky, Director Katherine Ridgway and Associate Chase Kulp were selected to lease the building by owner Steelbridge Capital, which acquired the asset in July.
SunTrust at Las Olas Square was developed in 1992 and is comprised a 17-story office tower at 515 East Las Olas Boulevard and a ±50,000-square-foot, three-story annex at 501 East Las Olas Boulevard. The complex also includes a five-story structured parking garage and offers 24-hour security, on-site banking, an on-site café and excellent views of the Atlantic Ocean and New River.
Major tenants in the building include SunTrust Bank, Raymond James Wealth Management, Holland and Knight, as well as Berkowitz, Dick, Pollack and Brant.
Steelbridge will soon begin significant renovations at SunTrust Center, upgrading the lobby and common areas in 515 East Las Olas as well as making improvements to the connected parking garage.
Steelbridge also plans to fully renovate and modernize the annex building at 501 East Las Olas. The modernization will include re-skinning the exterior and a complete retrofit of the interior space. The plaza between the tower and annex building will be converted to an attractive outdoor common area designed to serve as a gathering place for tenants and the general public.
“Our team is very excited to be a part of Steelbridge’s vision for the future of this asset,” said Herring. “The planned improvements will reposition SunTrust Center as the newest and most modern office product in downtown Fort Lauderdale.”
“The updated annex building will be a hub of modern innovation,” added Lobinsky. “It will feature technology and ground-floor retail amenities that are highly desirable in downtown office markets.”
