The office component at Pinecrest, the exciting new mixed-use shopping/dining/entertainment/office/hotel/residential district under construction on Harvard Road at I-271 in Orange Village, has landed its initial office tenants. Alliance Prime Associates, along with Continental Heritage Insurance Company and Tower 7 Partnership, LLC will be relocating their headquarters offices to Pinecrest when it opens in spring 2018. The companies are leasing a collective 15,000 SF on the fourth floor in one of the two office buildings that are a part of the project. The announcement was made today by Fairmount Properties, Pinecrest’s developer.

Longtime insurance executive Joseph E. LoConti is the president of Alliance Prime and the founder of the LoConti family office, including Tower 7 Partnership LLC, which are financiers of numerous start-up endeavors, private equity and real estate transactions. Continental Heritage is a Treasury-listed insurance carrier specializing in surety and emerging property and casualty markets with an A- rating by AM Best.

“A significant driver in our relocation decision was to locate within an environment that will provide our colleagues and clients with great options for dining and entertaining, as well as a hotel for visiting business associates, all within walking distance of our offices,” said LoConti. “We’re confident Pinecrest’s vibrancy and extensive array of amenities will provide convenience, enhance our image, improve our and our employees’ quality of life and increase our collective business productivity,” he added.

“Alliance Prime, Continental Heritage Insurance Company and Tower 7 Partnership as our initial office tenants is a great start,” said Adam Fishman, partner with Fairmount Properties. “These buildings deliver an optimum business environment including floor-to-ceiling glass, tenant-exclusive amenities, modern building efficiencies, the conveniences of the surrounding mixed-use district, connected garage parking and the ease of commuting from just about every direction. Those are assets that contribute to any company’s image, retention, recruiting and the bottom line. It’s truly the next generation in office space,” he added.
