By Amos Maki
A Memphis law firm has inked a new lease at a prominent East Memphis building, pushing the office property toward total occupancy.
The Miles Mason Family Law Group PLC has inked a lease for 2,700 square feet in the Atrium I building at 6800 Poplar Ave.
John Mercer represented landlord Highwoods Properties while John Snyder with Sperry Van Ness/Investec Realty Services represented the tenant.
The Highwoods-owned Atrium buildings are located on the north side of Poplar Avenue between Kirby Parkway and Oak Hill Road.
The Miles Mason Family Law Group employs a team of attorneys to provide divorce services for their clients. It is relocating from Clark Tower.
The Mason Zoccola Law Firm recently completed construction on a 3,854-square-foot office in suite 210 at Atrium I.
The new lease with The Miles Mason Family Law Group brings the 42,124-square-foot Atrium I building to 96 percent occupancy, with only 1,712 square feet available. The 42,099-square-foot Atrium II building is 100 percent occupied.
Located on the north side of Poplar between Kirby Parkway and Oak Hill Road, the Atrium I and II office complex includes two identical buildings with two-story atriums and interior landscaping.
“We feel the location of the buildings, as well as only being two floors with surface parking on both sides of the building, allows for easy access for customers and clients,” said John Mercer, director of leasing for Raleigh, N.C.-based Highwoods.

These two awards are the highest level of recognition the Boys & Girls Clubs of America gives to its supporters and they recognize dedicated and unusual service, resources and overall support of the nonprofit’s mission.
