Colliers International’s Philip Vann, CCIM represented the tenant, Highfill Infrastructure Engineering, P.C., in the lease of a ±1,528-square-foot office suite at the Meridian office tower. Tommy Johnson represented the landlord of Meridian office tower, HPT Sunbelt Portfolio, LLC.
“We were able to assist the tenant in negotiating a lease in a short time frame to allow business continuation,” said Vann. “The lease was executed after state and local governments had suggested work-from-home regulations, but Colliers was able to keep the lease process flowing for our clients.”
