Cushman & Wakefield to Lease Meridian Premier Center in Carrollwood

Tampa, FL, August 16, 2014 --( Cushman & Wakefield announced today it will handle the leasing of Meridian Premier Center, the former Premier Corporate Centre, at Gunn Highway and Linebaugh Avenue in Carrollwood.

Owned by Meridian Development Group, Meridian Premier Center is undergoing extensive renovations, including the demolition of an obsolete multi-story building to make room for additional parking.

Currently the property offers space in three suites, the largest consisting of 14,787 square feet of space. In all, Meridian Premier Center consists of 103,521 square feet in three buildings on a four-acre site.

Steve Kossoff, managing director of Meridian Development Group, said Meridian Premier Center will offer attractive office space in a very desirable area.

“Carrollwood is an attractive office market with limited availabilities,” Kossoff said. “This property, once redeveloped, will offer a Class A option with attributes important to tenants.”

James Moler, CCIM, and Paula Buffa, CCIM, both senior directors with Cushman & Wakefield, are offering the space for lease. Moler said the Meridian Premier Center suites will offer attractive benefits to tenants once the renovations are completed.

“Meridian Development Group is investing $1 million in this property, which will rent for $19 per square foot while offering full office services,” Moler said. "The property can be accessed from either Linebaugh Avenue or Gunn Highway, and the Veterans Expressway and I-275 are nearby, and the area is rich in such amenities as restaurants, banks and other personal service businesses."
