Pinecrest lands two law firms

Intellectual property firm Amin, Turocy & Watson LLP plans to exit a penthouse atop Key Tower downtown for the $240 million Pinecrest mixed-use project under construction in Orange Village.

Pinecrest developers Fairmount Properties of Cleveland and DiGeronimo Cos. of Independence announced they had leased 6,200 square feet to Amin Turocy and 5,000 square feet to internet defamation law firm Minc LLC. Minc will move from Woodmere Village.

Himanshu Amin, managing partner of Amin, Turocy said in the release, “We intend to create a workspace that rivals if not beats our current architecture-winning layout.”

However, the firm plans to exit its 57th floor Key Tower suite because it wants to set up shop in space with a design more in line with its high-tech clientele, with “seamlessly integrated form, function and workflow.”

Amin said the firm was attracted by being able to walk to Pinecrest’s other offerings, from restaurants and stores to apartments.

Aaron Minc, managing partner of Minc, said, “We’re really excited to be getting in on the ground floor.”

Adam Fishman, a Fairmount principal, said his company is finding “significant interest” in its Offices at Pinecrest.

Pinecrest is marketing an 80,000-square-foot office space now and will market another office space of the same size after it opens.

The law firms will occupy their suites by early summer. Pinecrest is scheduled to open this spring, but no specific opening date has been announced.

The Harvard Road property also will incorporate 400,000 square feet of retail space, an AC Hotel and 87 apartments.
