Taylor & Mathis Secures 32,000 Square Feet of Renewals at Espirito Santo Plaza

Espirito NightThe Signature Office Tower Remains 95% Occupied

Taylor & Mathis has finalized two deals comprising 32,000 square feet of lease renewals at Espirito Santo Plaza. The renewals place the sculptural glass tower on Brickell Avenue at 95 percent leased.

International law firm, Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, the second-largest tenant in the building, renewed its lease for 24,381 square feet in a seven-year deal.  The Taylor & Mathis’ Miami leasing team of Brian Gale, Andrew Trench and Ryan Holtzman, exclusive leasing agents for Espirito Santo Plaza handled the lease, working directly with Weil. The New York-based law firm has been a tenant at Espirito Santo Plaza since 2001.

“As one of the original tenants of the building and one of the most recognizable names in the legal industry, it was only natural for us to work with them to extend their lease term at Espirito Santo Plaza, “said Taylor & Mathis’ Andrew Trench. “Espirito Santo Plaza is a magnificent property recognized both as a signature among the Miami skyline and as the Miami headquarters of such a prominent law firm.”

Legg Mason Global Asset Management renewed their lease of 7,780 square feet for an additional five years. The lease was co-brokered by Alan Kleber & Matt Cheezem of CRESA.   Legg Mason is one of the largest asset management firms in the world, serving institutional and individual investors on six continents.
