SAN DIEGO-The San Diego based law firm of Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch has signed a lease for 100,000 square feet of office space at 525 B. St. in a building owned by Hines. The new lease represents an expansion of approximately 25,000 square feet for the law firm, which is scheduled to relocate to the Hines building in May 2010 after more than 40 years at 530 B St.

Procopio will occupy the top four floors, one additional high-rise floor as well as lower floor space at the 22-story Hines office tower and will be the only law firm in the Downtown San Diego market with premier building-top signage. Tom Turner, managing partner of Procopio, says that the relocation offers Procopio “strong visibility, generous parking, improved space efficiency and operational effectiveness in a building positioned at the forefront of the sustainable office movement.” He explains that Procopio’s decision to relocate to 525 B St. was also due in part to Hines’ commitment to sustainability and its pursuit of LEED certification, which the building is expected to attain by year end.

Procopio is also working with its design/construction team to certify its own space in the LEED for Commercial Interiors rating system. The building not only offered Procopio a chance to reduce its carbon footprint, but has also “provided an opportunity to incorporate innovative design and technology features into the firm’s new space, such as a roof-top meditative garden, solar panels that will power the firm’s lighting and a skylight that will allow natural light to penetrate all top floors through an innovative stairway,” it says.

Procopio was founded in San Diego more than 60 years ago. The firm says that its expansion into the larger office space demonstrates its long-term commitment to Downtown San Diego and its continued growth in the San Diego marketplace. Procopio was represented in the transaction by Craig Irving of Irving Hughes and Hines was represented by Matthew T. Carlson of Cushman & Wakefield.
