Cappelli Miles, a long-time, full-service marketing and communications firm, has been a client of Melvin Mark broker Tom Becic for more than 20 years. After years of doing business in a Class A office building in downtown Portland, the agency wanted to relocate to a suburban space more convenient to their other office locations and clients in the Willamette Valley. As a creative firm, they also wanted to capitalize on the latest trends in office design. They decided on a location in Kruse Way — an area not known for unconventional or creative office spaces.
The challenge was finding the right space and the right landlord — one who understood what Capelli Miles wanted to do and was willing to do the work involved in remaking the space to meet their needs. Tom’s job was to help the new landlord understand Capelli’s goals and negotiate a deal that worked for everyone. And that he did. Their new space is built like a studio, with concrete floors and contemporary, interesting finishes — all within minutes of the freeway.
