LeClairRyan will relocate to SunTrust Center in downtown Richmond
LeClairRyan, one of Virginia’s largest law firms, has signed a 10 and a half-year lease for about 50,000 square feet on the top three floors of the SunTrust Center in downtown Richmond.
The firm, currently located in about 80,000 square feet in the downtown Riverfront Plaza tower, plans to relocate to its new space in August 2015 following renovations.
“We are excited to have finalized our plans for our new home in downtown Richmond,” LeClairRyan CEO David C. Freinberg said in a statement. He said the smaller space will foster “cohesion, collaboration and teamwork.”
The 458,229-square-foot SunTrust Center is located at 919 E. Main St. “It is exciting to have LeClairRyan join our other long-standing anchor tenant, SunTrust Bank, and to have two best in class corporations with significant commitments to the building,” John Davidson, managing partner at Parmenter Realty Partners, said in a statement. Parmenter is the center’s owner and manager.
Andrew Ferguson, Robert S. Parsley, Bob Chodos and Steve Levitas with Colliers International handled lease negotiations for LeClairRyan. Russell Wyatt and Jamie Galanti at Commonwealth Commercial led the negotiations on behalf of Parmenter Realty Partners.
