Colliers International Expands Elliott Davis in Bank of America Plaza
January 23, 2014, Columbia, SC
Colliers International has completed a 10,883 square foot expansion for Elliott Davis in the Bank of America Plaza. Colliers International represented the landlord, AgFirst Farm Credit Bank, in the transaction. Once the expansion is complete in March 2014, the firm will occupy two full floors, a total of 36,628 square feet. LCK, Colliers International’s project management partner, is responsible for the coordination of the Elliott Davis expansion.
“We are deeply committed to the Midlands region and are fortunate to live and do business here. We opened the office in Columbia over 20 years ago with only seven people. Today, the office has more than 80 people and the largest CPA bench in the city. Our strategic focus is on talent, specialization and growth. As we continue to develop specializations, the region gives us access to a high caliber talent pool, including graduates from the University of South Carolina’s accounting school. Our Bank of America Plaza location is convenient to businesses and amenities, and as we grow, we have had the opportunity to expand our space as needed,” said Jason Caskey, Columbia managing shareholder.
Allen Wilkerson serves as Colliers International’s associate in charge of leasing the Bank of America Plaza. Wilkerson is a brokerage associate of Colliers International and a member of the Colliers International Office Practice Group. Wilkerson represents owners of office properties in the disposition and leasing of office properties.
