Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) has announced the expansion of law firm Jackson Lewis P.C. to 16,010 square feet of space at 400 Capitol Mall.
400 Capital Mall is a premier 507,264-square-foot Sacramento office tower. This landmark project was designed by award-winning architect, Hellmuth, Obatta & Kassabaum (HOK), and constructed in 1992. The building houses the market’s premier law, accounting and other professional service firms.
NKF Senior Managing Director Dan Chamberlain represented Jackson Lewis in the expansion.
“Jackson Lewis had relocated to 12,748 square feet of space at 400 Capitol Mall in 2015. We are excited to announce their recent expansion and growth representing a 30 percent increase for the firm,” noted Chamberlain.
“Jackson Lewis P.C. is steadily increasing our scope of services across the country, including Sacramento,” said Cary G. Palmer, Sacramento Office Managing Principal. “We realized that to meet our clients’ growing needs, additional office space was necessary. We have a great team of professionals in Sacramento. We added four professionals to our team this year, and expect to hire more next year to keep up with increased demand. Next year marks our 20th Anniversary in Sacramento and 60th Anniversary for the firm. I have loved my 20 years with the firm, and I am very excited about the future of our office and the firm.”
The Jackson Lewis expansion further underscores the strength of the Sacramento market, according to NKF. The Sacramento office market maintained strong momentum through the first three quarters of 2017, posting over 260,000 square feet of net absorption in the third quarter. This brings the year-to-date net absorption to just under 800,000 square feet, setting the stage for one of the office market’s best performances in over a decade.
“It’s exciting to see prestigious firms such as Jackson Lewis grow in this market. It further demonstrates the demand for quality space and the increased presence of professional service firms in Sacramento,” added Chamberlain.
According to the Federal Bureau of Economic Analysis on the gross domestic product of the country’s largest metropolitan areas for 2016, the Sacramento Metropolitan Statistical Area grew at a rate of 3.1%, one of the highest growth rates in the country. This doubled the national average of 1.5% for other major metropolitan areas.
