Law Firm Announces Purchase of Office Building

The law firm of Lieser Skaff Alexander has moved to a recently purchased, 2,300 square foot office building in North Hyde Park, Tampa.

The new firm offices are located at 403 North Howard Avenue, just across the street from the $26 million Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center (JCC), being developed on the grounds of the historic National Guard Armory. The 100,000 square foot JCC is the predominant reason why the area is being described by members of the press as Tampa’s “Next Hot Neighborhood,” and why Tampa’s Mayor recently stated that “over the next five years, the transformation [of this neighborhood] begins right here on Howard Avenue.”

The new location offers more convenient accessibility to the firm’s clients and terrific visibility from bustling Howard Avenue. “We chose to put down roots in North Hyde Park for many reasons, including visibility and that this area is about to boom,” said attorney, Ghada Skaff. Attorney Skaff also pointed out that the location is just blocks from Highway 275 and minutes to downtown Tampa and the courthouses.

The purchase of the beautiful, 10-year-old office building on Howard Avenue signals more carefully managed growth for Lieser Skaff Alexander, which also has plans to add additional attorneys soon. The LSA office contains 9 redesigned suites, conference rooms and work spacesHoward for the firm’s paralegals. “The shift from leasing to purchasing a building that has room we can grow into is a reflection of our commitment to our clients, our practice and this community,” stated attorney, Jeff Lieser.

Since moving in, Lieser Skaff Alexander has joined the North Hyde Park Alliance, a business-based organization, which is recognized as the voice of the neighborhood, and that was formed by like-minded business people who care about the area and its future development. Lieser Skaff Alexander also plans to participate in community events at the JCC. “We are absolutely thrilled to be part of this wonderful neighborhood during this incredible time in its history,” said attorney, Joe Alexander. “Our involvement in the revitalization of North Hyde Park will continue the firm’s ongoing commitment to the Tampa Bay community,” he said.
