Law firm DLA Piper signed a long-term lease renewal at downtown Miami office tower Southeast Financial Center.
The firm agreed to expand by 22,500 feet at the tower, according to a written statement released by a spokesperson for the property. DLA will occupy the 24th and 25th floors for a total of 45,134 square feet. Its first Miami office lease was signed at Southeast Financial in 2011.
JLL senior vice president Donald Cartwright and vice president Nicole Vassilaros exclusively handle leasing for the tower’s ownership.
Southeast Financial is home to 26 law firms. The property owner announced another round of planned renovations in March.
“The expansion of DLA Piper within the building is indicative of the economic improvement that has been taking place in Miami, as professional services firms have expanded into the market over the years and continue to experience healthy growth,” Cartwright said. — Eric Kalis
