Nearing full occupancy

The Cushman & Wakefield team of Executive Director Deanna Lobinsky and Associate Chase Kulp are spearheading leasing efforts at the property since July 2014. BayView Corporate Tower is currently 80 percent leased to a notable roster of tenants including CHG Healthcare Services, Whole Foods and EnvisionRX.

“BRIDGE is a noted national leader in creating collaborative environments for their tenants and the state-of-the-art amenities they are introducing at BayView Corporate Tower serve to reinforce their track record and continue to attract tenants to BayView Corporate Tower,” Lobinsky said in prepared remarks.

The building is within walking distance of several dining and retail amenities as well as residential developments along North Federal Highway.
