Nai/Merin Hunter Codman Broker Long-term Lease in Downtown Fort Lauderdale

A South Florida law firm will use the 9,285 square feet of space

NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Inc., a leading commercial real estate services firm, finalized an 11-year, 9,285-square-foot lease transaction to Stok Kon + Braverman, a full-service law firm with offices in Fort Lauderdale and Boynton Beach, on behalf of the landlord. The 19-story, 350,000-square-foot property is a Class-A office building located at the northeast corner of Broward Boulevard and Andrews Avenue in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

“We are excited to welcome Stok Kon + Braverman to 1 East Broward,” NAI/Merin Hunter Codman’s Adam Starr says. “Stok, who explored many of downtown’s most exclusive office properties, ultimately chose 1 East Broward due to the landlord’s continuing commitment to an extensive property improvement program and the suite’s existing high-end features and efficiency. Creating a welcoming, safe, and convenient office space experience for their employees was of utmost importance, as most of the firm’s employees returned to in-person work post initial lockdowns.”

The property owner, 1 East Broward Owner, LLC, purchased the property in 2018 and immediately implemented a multimillion-dollar property improvement program, including lobby, common area, lighting and bathroom upgrades. A complete state-of-the-art elevator modernization has recently been completed. It also features a grand lobby and a state-of-the-art fitness center, including Peloton bikes, manned 24/7 security, and a variety of on-site dining and concierge services. 1 East Broward is downtown Fort Lauderdale’s closest office building to the Brightline, and the property offers walkability to dining and retail destinations, including Flagler Village’s Arts and Technology Village (FATVillage), Music & Arts South of Sunrise District (MASS), Las Olas Boulevard and The Warf at Riverfront.

“We surveyed the entire Fort Lauderdale office market and determined that 1 East Broward Boulevard is the ideal office building to establish a permanent home for our firm,” Robert A. Stok says, Esquire Managing Principal of Stok Kon + Braverman. “Its location, convenient to the federal and Broward courthouses in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale’s commercial center, with easy access to rail and highway transportation, high-end hotels and restaurants, meshes perfectly with the firm’s suite of business services and is appealing to our clientele and employees.”

“Stok Kon + Braverman has a long history as one of Broward County’s premier boutique law firms and we are proud that they have made a long-term commitment to make 1 East Broward their home,” NAI/Merin Hunter Codman’s Chairman Neil Merin says. “Ownership has recently invested significant capital upgrading and modernizing the building’s elevators, security systems, common areas and amenities, and are committed to continuing to improve the property to attract high-quality tenants like Stok, Kon and Braverman.”
