Fort Lauderdale — Kelley Kronenberg, a diverse business law firm, has completed construction on its new state-of-the-art corporate headquarters. Attorneys, staff, Town of Davie Mayor Judy Paul, the Town’s public officials and invited guests recently celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the new building, which is located at 10360 West State Road 84 in Davie, between Hiatus Road and Nob Hill Road. The new headquarters will accommodate the firm’s continued growth and allow the team to better serve its clients.
As of July 1, more than 150 of the law firm’s legal professionals and staff members in Broward County have begun working in the new 35,000-square-foot, two-story office building. Kelley Kronenberg has enjoyed steady growth for the last several years and outgrew its previous headquarters.
“Today marks a significant milestone for us and it’s a reflection of the hard work, passion and sacrifice we have put into this firm,” said Heath Eskalyo, CFO and principal partner who spearheaded the project for Kelley Kronenberg. “We have created a modern workspace that should be a great complement to our collaborative culture and position us for future success.”
The new structure emphasizes an inspiring workspace thoughtfully curated to foster collaboration and client convenience. The facility features private office suites, as well as collaborative workstations, in a space with distinctive architecture and progressive design elements. The lobby boasts an architectural staircase that leads to a glass-panel balcony. And, two large conference areas that can transform into one great room for events, significant co-working common spaces, or smaller spaces to gather for informal brainstorming sessions in a relaxed atmosphere, as well as a dedicated education center for employee training.
The first floor also includes a mock courtroom, equipped with cameras and monitors that enable clients to participate in trial preparation remotely if they are not available to visit in person.
Perhaps most impressive, the building features a rooftop terrace that incorporates landscaping, canopy-covered kitchen and bathrooms. The rooftop provides an open-air venue for Kelley Kronenberg employees to gather, eat and conduct meetings, as well as host client and firm events.
Another popular addition for the firm’s staff includes an employee café, complete with large TVs and modern, casual seating to serve as a common area for employees to take a break and share lunch with their co-workers.
