“This latest wave of new leases signed at Brickell City Tower points to its appeal among top-quality tenants who are drawn to the building’s strong ownership and convenient location directly across from the Metrorail, Mary Brickell Village, and the new Brickell CityCentre project,” said Danet Linares, Vice Chairman of Blanca Commercial Real Estate. “We are enthusiastic about the robust leasing activity we are experiencing at the tower. We expect to continue to attract an increasing number of companies seeking office space in the Brickell Financial District with a broad amenity base as is uniquely provided by Brickell City Tower.”
Brickell City Tower’s current occupancy rate stands at 87 percent, with a tenant roster that includes The Beacon Council, the Consulate General of Japan, Chase Bank, law firm Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell, law firm Thornton, Davis & Fine, and marketing firm Max Borges Agency. The property’s ownership is finalizing plans to undertake a full-scale capital improvement program set to begin during the second quarter of 2014. Planned upgrades include renovations to the building’s common areas, as well as updates to the main lobby, restrooms, and tenant floors.
The building is situated between SW 8th and 9th Streets at SW 1st Avenue, with a variety of shops and restaurants within walking distance, neighboring The Shops at Mary Brickell Village, Publix, and the mixed-use Brickell City Centre project, which is now under development. It is the only high-rise office building in the Brickell area that is conveniently located directly across the street from a Metrorail station – the Brickell Metrorail Station at SW 1st Avenue – which now provides rail access throughout Miami-Dade as well as to and from Miami International Airport. Tenants also enjoy easy access to and from I-95, which is just two blocks away. The building has earned LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council and received an Energy Star rating in acknowledgement of its energy efficient operations.
Although Brickell City Tower is nearing full occupancy, there is still prime office space available for lease ranging from 1,500 to 17,000 square feet. For more information, contact Danet Linares or Alexander Cahlin of Blanca Commercial Real Estate at (305) 577-8850.
