General Provision, a hub for startups based in Fort Lauderdale’s FATVillage, has signed a five-year lease to expand its operation in one of the city’s last historic buildings from the 1920s era.
Jaime Sturgis brokers lease for General Provision as covered in the Sun Sentinel:
The 1920s-era Colonial Hotel in Fort Lauderdale will be the second location for the shared work space company General Provision. The company plans to launch a three-story, technology-focused, co-working concept in the space.
“They’re paying homage to the historical significance of the building while giving it a modern refresh of the interior,” said Native Realty founder Jaime Sturgis, who brokered the leasing deal. He said General Provision will occupy 6,000 square feet.
“The evolution of office space is continuing,” Sturgis said. “The high-rise corner offices are being traded in for open-floor plans.” It’s an environment, he said, that allows for the exchange of ideas among “like-minded professionals.”
