Every Peter Lawrence property reflects our commitment to long-term value and providing quality facilities for our tenants.

Peter Lawrence Commercial Real Estate was formed in 1988 to acquire, develop, lease and manage commercial real estate. The initial property acquisitions were made in the Tampa market where the Company’s headquarters are currently located. Shortly thereafter, Peter Lawrence expanded into the Miami market where the firm not only acquired existing industrial buildings, but also purchased vacant land parcels upon which the company developed Class A industrial product. In the early 1990’s, the firm further diversified its portfolio by acquiring property in Northern Virginia within the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. Peter Lawrence grew by not only purchasing industrial/warehouse facilities, but also acquired well-located suburban office buildings. During the late 1990’s and into the early years of the past decade, Peter Lawrence’s growth was primarily fueled by the construction and development of regional distribution facilities and mid-rise, Class A office buildings. Recently, the company acquired its first holding in Raleigh, North Carolina. In aggregate, the Peter Lawrence portfolio currently consists of 3.2 million square feet.

The Peter Lawrence Company and its employees take pride in providing the highest level of property management and services to achieve superior performance levels throughout its portfolio. Professional strength and a presence in each local market ensure unmatched service and excellence are delivered to our tenants. The Company has several available sites suitable for development or re-development and continues to seek out opportunities to further expand its holdings in existing markets or elsewhere.
