Farmington Hills, Michigan (March 2, 2011) – Friedman Integrated Real Estate Solutions, the Midwest’s leading provider of commercial real estate services, announces today the execution of four new lease transactions at Laurel Office Park, located at 17177 and 17197 N. Laurel Park Drive in Livonia, Michigan. The new tenants will occupy approximately 15,629 square feet of office space between the recently renovated buildings, Laurel Office Park I and III.

“Both tenants and brokers recognize Friedman’s well-regarded reputation for providing excellent customer service and trust,” said Eric Slutzky, Director of Leasing and Asset Management for Friedman. “We’ve received an extraordinary response to the completed lobby renovations and system upgrades at Laurel Office Park I and are witnessing renewed interest from current tenants and new prospects at renovations currently underway at Laurel Office Park III. Organizations have recognized the value in Laurel Office Park’s competitive pricing and premier location along the I-275 Corridor – and it’s reflected in the increase in leasing activity we’re currently experiencing.” Friedman has recently executed over 41,000 square feet of lease renewals with existing tenants at both buildings.
