Client Objectives

  • NERC wanted to expand its current headquarters’ location while maintaining below market rental rates.
  • NERC additionally wanted to refresh its entire space without spending capital or paying additional fees for improvements.


  • Cresa’s strategy was to preserve NERC’s cash flow while leveraging the landlord’s funds.
  • Cresa expanded NERC’s headquarters by 10,000 SF with full construction and refresh of the entire facility.
  • Cresa additionally extended NERC’s existing lease by 5 years at below market rates.
  • The client saved over $1,000,000 to be allocated for needed expansion and improvements.
I was extremely impressed with the recommended strategy by Cresa and their ability to achieve their stated goals of not spending our capital for improvements and retaining submarket rental rates.
