Tom Erb, a member of Lewis Rice's management committee who is leading the search efforts, said the firm is looking only at downtown choices. Erb said downtown's revitalization is playing a big role in the firm's decision to stay. Erb said he expects the firm will make its choice within the next few weeks. "We've been downtown for 99 years, and next year, it will be 100 years," he said.
The firm has been rumored to be looking into renewing its lease at 500 N. Broadway in addition to considering a move to other buildings, such as the General American Building. Wherever the firm ends up, it's great to see them make a commitment to downtown!
