Law firm Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP signed on for a 26,429- square-foot office lease at the Mizner Park Office Tower located at 225 NE Mizner Boulevard in Boca Raton.

Newmark Managing Director Jeremy Hakala and Managing Director Clay Sidner represented the tenant in the transaction. The team has worked with Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd over the past two years, and this marks the first transaction they have completed together. The asset owner, Brookfield Properties, was represented by John Criddle and Joe Freitas of CBRE.

The firm moved from Palmetto Park City Center at 120 E. Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton.

“After evaluating the firm’s options for several months, we were able to uncover a unique opportunity which included building-top signage on two sides of the Mizner Park Office Tower. The Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd name will be on display for all of the Mizner area to see,” said Hakala. “We are grateful to have had the opportunity to work with a world-class law firm. We think they will be extremely happy in their new home for a very long time.”

The Mizner Park Office Tower is a seven-story, 167,440-square-foot, Class A office building located in the heart of Mizner Park, a landmark mixed-use development including retail, office, residential and cultural space. The 255,168 square feet of retail space at Mizner Park features luxury cinema iPic Theaters; national retailers such as Lord & Taylor, Tommy Bahama, Sur La Table and Z Gallerie; and popular restaurants Loch Bar, Yard House, Villaggio Restaurant and Ruth’s Chris Steak House. The property offers sweeping views of the ocean and Plaza Real.

According to Newmark Research, the South Florida region felt its first recovery since the impacts from the pandemic began, with over 283,000 square feet of positive net absorption recorded during the third quarter of 2021. This was the first time all three markets in South Florida, along with all three class segments, saw demand outpace supply since the effects from the global shutdown began to surface during the same period one year ago. The Broward County office sector saw leasing activity tick upward during the third quarter of 2021, with 645,000 square feet of leasing activity. Total year-to-date leasing activity in the Broward County office market registered 1.8 million square feet, double the activity seen at the same point in 2020.
