1100 E 55th Street, Cleveland, Ohio 44103

1100 E 55th Street, Cleveland, Ohio 44103 A Lease renewal of approximately 41,235 sq.ft. of Industrial Office / Warehouse / Showroom to City Desk Office Furniture Warehouse in September, 2014. Green Bridge Associates kept in touch with City Desk owners and worked on an expansion plan of their existing space. The adjacent leased location was being used on a month-month basis by City Desk and was part of the front office for the warehouse that was the existing showroom for City Desk. The functionally obsolete office space was being marketed by another brokerage and was being shown periodically with very little interest in the current configuration. It would have cost the current landlord substantial tenant improvement dollars to get the space market ready and the tenants looking here not willing to pay for the improvements. The landlord used this situation to negotiate a longer term lease with the tenant and this provided an opportunity to expand into the front office section. City Desk received the expanded space and received a tenant improvement allowance from the owner. City Desk managed their own tenant improvements to expand their office furniture showroom making the space more receptive to potential customers looking for office furniture. City Desk was able to secure a long term lease and increase their showroom square footage and improve their showroom appearance.

11925 N. Avon Belden Road, Grafton, Ohio 44044

11925 N. Avon Belden Road, Grafton, Ohio 44044Commercial Property. Green Bridge Associates Represented Buyer in the Sale Transaction of 16,000 Sq.Ft. in December 2012. The Property Sold and Transferred for a Total Purchase Price of $350,000 or $21 per Sq.Ft. By networking with other business owners we were introduced to a potential buyer looking for a property he could enjoy with family and friends and conduct business operations in a professional manner. We had many meetings and generated reports to identify potential properties. We toured several properties to help understand what was important to the buyer. Acreage was a key part of the equation and unique property features were important. At one point we considered buying vacant land and building a new building but it was cost prohibitive. After more research and meetings to discuss options the buyer saw a property on the market and had us track down the information. Working with the buyer and the township to verify the zoning would support our use we submitted an offer to the seller's broker and negotiated a purchase agreement that had to close by year end. Staying in contact with the buyer, seller and title company we were able to close by the year-end dead line.
