ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cushman & Wakefield recently secured a 115,000-square-foot lease with internationally recognized law firm Jones Day on behalf of North American Properties (NAP). Jones Day will fully occupy the office component at Building 500, the 135,600-square-foot building at the corner of Atlanta’s 15th and Peachtree Streets. The first floor of the six-story building will feature a lobby for Jones Day and retail space.
Jones Day joins the mass of office users relocating to mixed-use environments that offer a highly amenitized experience to engage their guests as well as recruit and retain top talent. The law firm will design a custom workplace experience with a more efficient floor plan than offices of the past. It will also include an expansive terrace on the 4th and 5th floors overlooking Peachtree Street.
“Designing a modern workspace that provides a more efficient design by using the latest technology to elevate the experience for our clients and promote collaboration among our lawyers and staff is paramount to our ability to continue to deliver service that our clients expect,” said Aldo LaFiandra, Partner-in-Charge of the Jones Day Atlanta office.
“It’s no longer about having a sumptuous wood-paneled lobby and big corner offices inside the building, it’s now about technology, efficiency and a differentiating factor, where partners and associates find themselves when they step outside,” said Mark Toro, Managing Partner at NAP.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Senior Director Andy Sumlin, Director Sonia Winfield and Director Laura Power of Atlanta’s Capital Markets team represented NAP.
