McCandlish Holton expands lease in Bank of America Center
McCandlish Holton has signed a 34,000-square-foot lease in the Bank of America Center in Richmond’s downtown financial district.
The 32-lawyer firm has had its headquarters at the center at 1111 East Main Street since 1994 but looked at new office options as its current lease approached expiration.
McCandlish Holton said in a news release that it would expand its space by nearly 30 percent, moving from its current 15th floor location to the 21th floor, and expanding its 20th floor presence.
“With the evolution in law firm staffing models and technology over the past 20 years, we needed a new approach to office design. We looked at many site options, but we have found the central location of our current building to be very convenient. Our new office space will be extensively renovated to allow for more efficient space usage, easily accessible public areas and full integration of technology,” Jamie Baskerville Martin, the firm’s president said in a statement.
Ned Roberts and Charles M. Polk III, with Jones Lang LaSalle Americas Inc. in Richmond, handled the transaction for McCandlish Holton. Malcolm M. Randolph Jr., and Scott F. Durham with CBRE | Richmond represented the landlord. RoseMarie Bundy, Randy Blankenship and Caroline Garrett with Evolve Architecture will serve as the architectural and interior design team on the project.
