Espirito Santo Plaza

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

The largest renewal came from international law firm, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, the second-largest tenant in the building, which 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 handled the deal. The other lease came from Legg Mason Global Asset Management, which renewed its lease of 7,780 square feet for an additional five years. The Legg deal was co-brokered by Alan Kleber & Matt Cheezem of CRESA.

“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,” Trench said. “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.” —Christopher Cameron
