The company’s fourth quarter was its most active of 2023 and highlights a successful year with over 160,000 square feet of new, expanded and renewed leases.

“Despite the many challenges facing the regional office market, our team continues to drive strong leasing activity across our portfolio,” Sandy Monaghan, senior vice president and director of asset management at Signature Acquisitions, said. “Our success is powered by our portfolio of adaptable Class A office spaces paired with an unmatched focus on tenant service that continually provides value to every company that has found a home in one of our spaces.
