Gables New York-based flexible office provider Knotel will open its fourth location in South Florida. Knotel leased 23,700 square feet on three full floors at the Ofizzina office building at 1200 Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables, according to a news release from the landlord’s broker. Knotel is expected to open in the third quarter of next year.

Robert Orban of Cresa represented the tenant.

Becker, which is based in Fort Lauderdale and has 130 attorneys, is moving its Coral Gables office from 121 Alhambra Plaza.
