Heard on the Street: Law firm to move to new northwest complex
A law firm has outgrown its south Rochester office and will move into a new northwest complex, when completed.
Meshbesher & Spence has lined up 4,600 square feet of ground floor space in the new office center being built by Rochester’s Jeff Brown Jr. and Mike Zirbes, of North Rock Real Estate, on 3 acres of open land at the corner of West Circle Drive and 26th Street Northwest.
That small run of 26th Street connects to Commerce Drive Northwest, which runs parallel to West Circle. It’s just north of the north Aldi grocery and the Sleep Number bed store.
“We have simply outgrown our accommodations,” said Rochester attorney Andrew Davick.
Davick and Zachary Bauer are the attorneys based here with a team of five staff members.
Davick said the Minneapolis-based firm hopes to expand by adding more support staff and possibly another lawyer or two.
“We have plenty of work to do. We just need more people and more room,” he added.
If construction of the new office building goes as expected, the law firm hopes to move from its current spot in Suite 105 in Moga Square, at 2001 Second St. SW, to the new digs in April.
Meshbesher & Spence, which has a long relationship with Rochester, has been in Moga Square since 2012. Prior to that, the firm had an office at 416 S. Broadway for seven years.
In addition to Meshbesher, North Rock will have an office in the 24,000-square-foot, two-story complex.
Under the name of CR22 Partners LLC, North Rock purchased the land for the project for $1.97 million from Northwest Investments.
