Eads, CEO of Gro Solutions stated, “Brooks was instrumental in building synergy among the leaders of Gro Solutions including the Board of Directors. He was thorough in asking all of the right questions to truly understand how our office space would support the vision for our company culture, client needs, and productive workflow. We started with a wide scope of multiple submarkets and he guided me through all of the decisions with a disciplined process that addressed economic and non-economic factors.”
Brooks Morris, Vice President with Cresa, said, “After detailed discussions with David Eads about their business, it became very clear that building a culture that attracts and retains top talent will be critical in supporting their growth plans. As we went to market and advised Gro, we identified Midtown as the absolute number one choice for location. After securing very favorable economic lease terms, we began working closely with the leadership team on the buildout of their space. They have a unique need of open collaborative space with many options for private and semi-private functions. We are extremely excited for the finished product. Working with people like the leaders of Gro Solutions makes what I do all the more enjoyable.”
