Avant Building Project Overview

Damon Morey, now known as Barclay Damon following its merger with Hiscock Barclay in 2015, engaged McGuire Development Company in 2008 to provide fiduciary oversight services for the construction of its new headquarters as it was transitioning from its long time home in Cathedral Place to the newly constructed Avant Building.

A project several years in the making, Damon was reliant upon the landlord, Uniland Development, to construct its new offices according to agreed-upon specification and following Damon’s tight relocation schedule given its expiring lease. After several fits and starts due to Uniland’s complex $85 million reconstruction of the former Dulski Federal Office Building into a Class A Office and Hospitality building, at the time of McGuire’s engagement, completion of Damon’s new office space was behind schedule and over budget.
