News : Farah & Farah Call Center Moving to 100 North Laura
Jacksonville, FL, USA, September 9, 2016 -- Lawyers Eddie and Chuck Farah, owners of the 100 North Laura building, will move their call center into the third floor of the Downtown structure.
The city is reviewing a permit application for Tenant Contractors Inc. to renovate 7,090 square feet at 100 N. Laura St. for the call center.
Landlord representative Matthew Clark, vice president of Prime Realty Inc., said the call center would use almost 5,800 square feet and operate 24 hours a day. He said Farah and Farah will move the operation from its headquarters at 10 W. Adams St. because of space.
"Their office building is at capacity and they thought it was better to move the call center off-site to allow room for more attorneys," Clark said.
He believes the relocation will be in early 2017 and would include 50 positions.
Farah and Farah will take the entire third floor, which is smaller than the other floors because Anytime Fitness on the second floor uses space on two stories.
Clark said the building has three full floors –– the fourth, fifth and ninth floors –– available along with space on the sixth and 10th floors. With the call center, occupancy is about 65 percent, he said.
