Cushman & Wakefield professional Jim Krivanek represented business advisory firm, Skoda Minotti, in its search for office space in downtown Cleveland. The firm plans to take approximately 10,000 square feet on the 8th floor of the Fifth/Third Center located at 600 Superior Avenue. Skoda Minotti’s new downtown office is expected to open in Fall 2019. Headquartered in Mayfield Village, the company has additional offices located in Westlake, Akron and Tampa, Florida.
Skoda Minotti’s expansion downtown is representative of a growing number of businesses relocating or opening additional offices in the downtown area to better serve clients across the region and to acquire and retain talent. As Skoda Minotti’s leaders announced the firm’s plans for expansion, they were encouraged by the number of employees who expressed interest in moving downtown. They were further encouraged by a number of economic incentives provided by the City of Cleveland and the State of Ohio.
“It’s very exciting to see a well-established company like Skoda Minotti, with such a long history of being located in the suburbs, expand their footprint into downtown,” said Jim Krivanek. “It’s indicative of the growing re-urbanization, and it has a lot to do with the recent mixed-use developments. The future of the office market in Cleveland is looking bright and I’m excited for more positive momentum downtown.”
Located in the heart of downtown and close to the highway, the Class A office space includes upgraded common and conferencing areas as well as ample attached parking. Its central location offers close proximity to all the popular entertainment districts like Gateway, Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse, Playhouse Square, East 4th and Progressive Field.
“As we continue to grow, being downtown makes solid business sense. From our new office, we will be better positioned to support our downtown and West Side clients and we will be able to reach a younger talent pool that wants to live and work downtown,” said Jon Shoop, partner in charge of the new downtown office.
