DALLAS, January 9, 2019 – SettlePou, a Dallas-based law firm, has renewed its 22,908-square-foot (sf) office lease at 3333 Lee Parkway, in the heart of the Turtle Creek micro market. The firm occupies a full floor of the office building, which is owned by Granite Properties.
SettlePou decided to renew their lease after an extensive search of new Class A office space in several different office markets.
“The firm, which is celebrating its 40th year, wanted to ensure it was in a location that would be convenient and attractive for its clients and employees, including the next generation,” said Robbie Baty, Executive Director, at Cushman & Wakefield. He and colleague Bill McClung, Executive Managing Director, represented the tenant in its search and lease. “After touring other Class A offices in Turtle Creek, Uptown, the Central Business District and North Dallas, SettlePou decided to recommit to 3333 Lee Parkway, which they’ve been in for more than a decade. Granite has committed capital to upgrade and renovate the property, and the work has made it better than ever,” he added.
SettlePou was founded in 1978, and specializes in business, litigation, lending and real estate law. The firm is well-esteemed in Dallas and is a five-time winner of the Dallas Morning News’ Top 100 Places to Work award. In 2018, the Dallas Morning News selected SettlePou as the area’s No. 1 small company—the first time a law firm has ever topped the list in the 10-year history of the award.
”We are pleased to continue our working relationship with Granite Properties,” said Allen Smith, President of SettlePou. “3333 Lee Parkway has been a great home for SettlePou for almost one-half of our 40 years in business, and we are excited about the building renovations, as well as our future here.”
Granite recently completed an extensive renovation on the property. The updates include a new 3,500-sf customer lounge, and a renovated conference center and parking garage.
“At Granite we’re constantly looking for ways to improve the experience of our customers and meet the needs of the modern workforce,” said Robert Jimenez, Senior Director of Leasing, Granite Properties. “We’re thrilled that our recent updates at 3333 Lee Parkway help offer attractive spaces where companies like SettlePou want to be.”
During the lease renewal, Granite Properties was self-represented by Robert Jimenez, and Burson Holman.
