As a leading commercial real estate firm, we know office space. Check out our new, invigorating and inspiring West Palm Beach office. The primary designer was our very own company Chairman, Neil. E. Merin – who infused today’s modern style with rustic charm. With this renovation we’ve not only changed the environment in which we work, but we’ve also changed how we do business.
Every square inch invites collaboration, creativity (white board walls) and fun (pool table and putting green); while the telephone booths, relaxation, club, and conference rooms offer privacy. Aside from the views, the central focal point, an area perfect for hosting firm and charitable events, is the café, complete with a 24’ red bar, 60‐specialty beverage touch coffee machine and industrial refrigerators.
This shift towards a more collaborative and flexible work space is taking over and with good reason. An innovative office design can inspire employees to do their best work. To keep employees engaged, a work space needs to be designed with that goal in mind.

NAI/Merin Hunter Codman Exec Expresses Concern About Rise in Sublease Space
In the 1970s, Neil Merin was making $160 a week running a production line for a toy manufacturer in the Northeast when he quit to move to Palm Beach County for a property manager position that paid 10 percent more.
The new gig would be short-lived.
“The company I went to work for down here went out of business six months after I joined, so I went and got a real estate license and started selling properties in 1976,” he explained.
Merin would start West Palm Beach-based NAI / Merin Hunter Codman in 1982, and today he is one of South Florida’s longest-tenured commercial real estate brokers.
While he handles all aspects of the brokerage industry, his specialty is the sale and leasing of office and retail properties. Just in the past two decades, Merin has represented tenants and landlords in negotiations totaling more than 30 million square feet and values exceeding $7 billion.
Our firm was thrilled to have sponsored and hosted the May 16th Business Development Board Real Estate Round Table at our very own home in West Palm Beach, Centurion Tower. Over 70 guests enjoyed networking and breakfast in our new 7th-floor suite before heading to our 6th-floor vacancy for the “Planes, Trains & Autonomous Vehicles” panel discussion. The informative panel covered how recent trends and transportation changes could impact commercial real estate in our area.
Firm Chairman, Neil E. Merin, SIOR, CCIM, moderated the panel which included Lily Elefteriadou, Ph.D., Director of the University of Florida Transportation Institute, Patrick Goddard, President, Brightline, Stacy Miller, Director of Transportation Development, F.D.O.T., Bruce Pelly, Executive Director, Palm Beach County Department of Airports and Nick Uhren, Executive Director, Palm Beach County Transportation Planning Agency.
Centurion Tower was an ideal place to host the event, as it features a convenient central location close to I-95 with a covered parking garage and on-site security. Click here to learn more information about Centurion Tower and to see the space available for lease.
