MacKenzie secures largest lease deal in Baltimore County East

MacKenzie Commercial Real Estate Services, LLC and Blue Ocean Realty are proud to announce Mariner Finance, LLC has leased 34,849 square feet at 8211 Town Center Drive in White Marsh. The deal marks the largest completed deal in 2013 for a submarket that has traditionally been serviced by small and medium sized local firms.

“This is a fantastic deal in terms of timing and location, proving that firms are looking for locations spearheaded by strong, dedicated landlords,” said MacKenzie Vice President F. Joseph Bradley. “Blue Ocean is confident in White Marsh. They knew when they purchased 8211 Town Center Drive that it was quality real estate with an unparalleled location in the market.”

Bradley represented landlord Blue Ocean Realty in the transaction. The firm has made waves over the last five months by purchasing multiple properties throughout the Baltimore market and quickly filling up long vacant space in a challenging market. The area has seen few large floorplates come available, creating an advantageous opportunity for all parties in the transaction. The team’s strong understanding of market conditions and ability to react quickly and creatively
have provided the growing local firm the nimbleness to compete against larger firms.

“We immediately saw the value 8211 Town Center Drive could offer Mariner Finance and began nurturing the relationship, knowing it would be a great fit. Having MacKenzie there to finalize the deal was just icing on the cake.” Jonathan
Ehrenfeld “Needless to say, we are very excited.”

Blue Ocean re-introduced the building to the market in September and the diversified Real Estate Investment Company’s future plans for the building include a parking lot resurfacing project, the complete renovation of the lobby, elevators and
restrooms, painting of the exterior of the building and upgrading the landscaping throughout.
