Thalhimer has been awarded the leasing by the buyer, Lo-Hi LLC, and the building will remain Class A office space. It is the only Class A building near downtown with parking. Lo-Hi will also be opening Lo-Hi Coworking, which will provide private executive office space for companies with up to 10 employees.
