Cushman & Wakefield | CRESCO Real Estate selected as exclusive leasing agent for Post Office Plaza

Cushman & Wakefield | CRESCO Real Estate is pleased to announce its appointment as exclusive leasing agent for the iconic Post Office Plaza located in downtown Cleveland.

Forest City Realty Trust, affiliated with the ownership of Post Office Plaza, and CRESCO Real Estate have worked together on a number of transactions recently, including the recent disposition of the Terminal Tower, the 52-story landmark skyscraper, on Public Square.

“We are delighted to have the opportunity of working on this important project with the talented team at Forest City” said Rico Pietro, a Managing Partner at CRESCO Real Estate.

Activity in the central business district of Cleveland is vibrant. Three hundred residential units will be added to the Terminal Tower by 2018, while several large office tenants are currently seeking prime office space in downtown Cleveland, including Forest City. The timing of the engagement could not be better for Cushman’s Cleveland office.

“With its large floor plates, sky-lit atrium lobby and connectivity to Public Square, Tower City, and public transportation, Post Office Plaza represents a unique opportunity to accommodate the space requirements of a number of large office tenants, including a corporate headquarters,” said Bill Saltzman, Executive Vice President and Director of Office Services for CRESCO Real Estate. He added, “We are honored to have been awarded this important assignment.”

“It’s such an exciting time in Cleveland! We are pleased to have such a well-connected team of real-estate professionals

representing our interests in this market,” said Jim LaRue, Director of Asset Management and Property Oversight.
