Tuesday, October 16, 2007 – ATLANTA – October 16, 2007 – Carter, the Southeast’s oldest and largest privately held full-service commercial real estate firm, was recently awarded property management of four projects in Atlanta, Ga., and Tampa, Fla. This addition brings the total square feet managed by Carter to 30,000,000.
Carter manages over 11.8 million square feet in the Atlanta area and has added another trophy tower to the list. The Carter management team, which has been involved in Atlantic Station since construction began in 2004, started managing the second office building, 201 17th Street, on July 1 this year. This 350,000-square-foot Class A office tower is scheduled to open November 2007 and is certified LEED Gold. In addition, Mike Shelly and Sonia Winfield of Carter are leasing the building.
The Carter portfolio in the Tampa market continues to grow with the addition of three more properties. Franklin Exchange, a 315,000-square-foot office complex is located in downtown Tampa adjacent to TECO Plaza, a facility also managed by Carter. The property consists of three separate buildings, including a 22-story high-rise tower and separate seven- and three-story adjoining buildings. Leasing will be handled by Juan Vega, who is located in Carter’s Tampa office.
The newest building Carter is managing is the USF Health South Tampa Center, located on the campus of Tampa General Hospital on Davis Island. It is a 126,000-square-foot medical office building, which Carter also developed. The majority of this seven-story building will be occupied by the end of September 2007 by various USF Health offices and clinics, including pediatrics, OB/GYN, neurosurgery and internal medicine.
Carter was also awarded property management of Northdale Executive Center in Tampa, a two-building project consisting of an 89,000-square-foot, three-story office building and a 50,000-square-foot, two-story office structure. As part of this assignment, Carter will also oversee the Fountain Square Owners Association and will manage the common area of the 33-acre office park. Juan Vega with Carter will coordinate all leasing.
“Carter is pleased to have been awarded management of these projects,” stated Holly Hughes, executive vice president of property and facility management. “Carter’s prior experience in managing diverse properties such as Class A medical office buildings and owners associations contributed to gaining the privilege of overseeing these projects. Additionally, Carter continues to grow in two of its core markets by following key clients such as AIG Global Real Estate and the University of South Florida,” added Hughes.
