PHOENIX — A commercial real estate firm announced last week that it has leased 9,000 square feet of office space in a former Morton’s The Steakhouse building.

The space at The Esplanade near Camelback Road and 24th Street offers 18-foot ceilings and 15-foot retractable windows that open to an outdoor patio.

The building’s location, ground-level access and street visibility were key factors in Transwestern Commercial Services’ decision, according to a press release.

“Transwestern wants to emphasize the human element of commercial real estate and provide an environment that encourages connections and meaningful relationships between our team members, their clients and the larger community,” managing director Mark Stratz said in the release.

“Our new office will provide the physical space for our team members to develop creative real estate solutions and drive value for clients.”

The real estate firm plans to move into the space this summer.

Chicago-based Morton’s closed the location in 2012 but still operates a restaurant in the Kierland Commons in Scottsdale.
