Markstein has finalized an agreement to relocate its office to the newly renovated Historic Federal Reserve Building after its team grew by more than 60 percent in 2016. Markstein plans to move operations into the Federal Reserve summer 2017.
“Our team’s focus on excellence in our work is the primary driver of our growth,” said Eileen Markstein, managing director at Markstein. “After just four years in our current location, which we expanded to more than 5,000 square feet two and a half years ago, we have already outgrown our space.”
Markstein will take over the entire second floor of The Historic Federal Reserve Building, occupying approximately 13,189 square feet.
“It was important to us to contribute to the revitalization and growth of downtown Birmingham,” Eileen Markstein continued. “We are proud to build out a technology-driven, dynamic space in a building that, beyond serving as a showpiece in our city, represents historical and economic significance, combined with the future advancement of our business community.”
Philip Currie, SIOR, CCIM, president at J.H. Berry & Gilbert, Inc., represented Markstein in the search for a new space.
“Markstein needed to relocate in a timely manner order to accommodate their growing team,” said Currie. “Our team worked closely with Markstein to find and negotiate a lease for an office space that would allow for continuous growth while reflecting their dynamic culture.”
“We are thrilled with Markstein’s decision to relocate its office to The Historic Federal Reserve Building,” said Michael A. Mouron, president and chairman of Capstone Real Estate Investments. “The modernized building plays a significant role in Birmingham’s ongoing revitalization, and connects the Magic City’s rich history with its bright, prosperous future, which we feel Markstein represents.”
