Newmark Cornish & Carey has announced the completion of a 20,346-square-foot lease at 100 Pringle Avenue with global law firm Berry, Appleman & Leiden LLP (BAL). The Class A, seven-story office property at the Walnut Creek BART station is part of Walnut Creek Center, a soon-to-be renovated two-building complex totaling approximately 315,000 square feet.
Executive Managing Director Breck Lutz of Newmark Cornish & Carey’s Walnut Creek office represented the landlord, a venture of Align Real Estate and PCCP, LLC. BAL was represented by Rosen Realty Group and Avison Young.
Completed in 1983, 100 Pringle features a striking, three-story atrium lobby, a conference center, fitness center, gourmet deli, abundant parking and onsite management.
More than doubling its office capacity, the tenant relocated from an 8,000-square-foot sublease at 2 Ygnacio Center in Walnut Creek.
“BAL has chosen to locate to one of Walnut Creek’s premier office complexes which is adjacent to BART and offers easy freeway access to Interstate 680 and Highway 24,” said Lutz.
Carol Mays, BAL Chief Operating Officer, stated, “BAL continues to grow in the Bay Area and our ability to expand into larger office space in Walnut Creek is a great opportunity. We are a people-focused firm and are delighted to offer more of our East Bay employees shorter commute times and close BART access in a location that has so much to offer. We look forward to investing in the local community.”
