FORT WORTH-In another win this summer for Burnett Plaza, the Decker, Jones, McMackin, McClane, Hall & Bates law firm has re-upped and expanded, bumping its headquarters lease to 18,797 sf for another eight years. The firm, with ties to the city dating back 112 years, will get keys to the extra class A space in roughly 60 days.

The law firm is filling all but 3,000 sf of the 20th floor of the 40-story office building at 801 Cherry St. in the CBD. The tenant’s broker, Rick Hopwood of NAI Huff Partners, tells that the new deal has replaced one that was set to expire in April 2009, with the finished contract including rate bumps and a right of first refusal on the floor’s remaining space.

Hopwood says the deal took three months to seal, including an evaluation of other Downtown options. “They really like the building and where they are,” he says, “so they decided to make a deal at Burnett Plaza. The building’s owner was helpful in making this work those guys. Both parties should be applauded for working together.”
