Corporate Realty Retained to Manage and Lease The Beach at UNO’s Research and Technology Park

Corporate Realty is pleased to announce it has been selected to provide property management and leasing services for The Beach at UNO, a research and technology park located at 2021 Lakeshore Drive in New Orleans, adjacent to the UNO campus. Containing over 600,000 rsf in six (6) buildings on 30 acres, The Beach is a multi-building office park offering office space, multi-purpose research space, and conference facilities.

“We are excited to bring The Beach into our portfolio,” said Michael J. Siegel, President of Corporate Realty. “We look forward to serving the needs of the tenants at the Beach and assisting them with their short- and long-term property needs.”

The Beach, managed by the UNO Research and Technology Foundation, currently houses more than 30 companies and fosters a community of innovation and collaboration with UNO and the New Orleans area. It was established in the mid-1990s as a public-private partnership with the University of New Orleans.

“The UNO Research and Technology Foundation continues to build on our strong relationship with the University of New Orleans,” said Gary Solomon, Chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Directors. “This new partnership with Corporate Realty will allow us to strengthen this major asset for the University and the region.”

By engaging Corporate Realty, the Foundation will be able to further focus on its mission to support the research, scholarship, and commercialization activities of the university and to drive innovation through a new programming division.

“This is a pivotal time for us,” said Rebecca Conwell, President and CEO of the UNO Research and Technology Foundation. “Partnering with Corporate Realty on the property management and leasing functions allows our team to focus on growing the new programming department and innovation center and continue with our mission to leverage world-class academic resources and entrepreneurial talent to drive research and innovation.”

Tom Leonhard, the Chair of the Foundation’s real estate committee, said, “The Foundation expects that its new partnership with Corporate Realty will enhance its ability to implement transformative capital investments to the property, continue to support existing Beach tenants, and recruit new companies to participate in our exciting innovation community.”

Jeffrey D. Cohn and Andrea Arons Huseman, CCIM, will be handling the leasing for Corporate Realty. Property Management will be handled by Casey Moriarty, CPM®.
