Sneak Peak of 830 Brickell, the Miami Office Tower That is Defining the ‘Wall Street of the South’August 18, 2022
For the first time in over a decade, Miami’s Brickell Financial District, known as the “Wall Street of the South,” is welcoming a new, standalone office building. Developed by OKO Group and Cain International, 830 Brickell will be a 55 story Class A-plus tower that will appeal to corporate, creative, and technology clients alike.
According to OKO Group Chairman and CEO Vladislav Doronin, “There is significant demand for premium office space in the heart Brickell. The compelling vision and progressive offering at 830 Brickell make it the obvious choice for tenants that are planning for their long-term future. No other building in South Florida can provide companies with the flexibility, amenities, technology features, and forward-looking design that 830 Brickell has to offer.”
Since 830 Brickell is under construction, tenants have the opportunity to build out their workspaces from scratch and completely customize their office designs and layouts well in advance of moving in. 830 Brickell is the only Class A-plus office tower in Miami that offers first-generation flexibility that capitalizes on accessibility, walkability, technology, and design that is both beautiful and functional. With the built-in advantage of having a blank canvas and total flexibility to customize your space, 830 Brickell is the trophy address for any company – from small, mid-market to large high-end firms.
OKO Group and Cain International’s mission has been to develop this space with high amenities to help nurture career-driven individuals with a health-wellness mentality to meet their need for a beautiful environment with high-tech functionality. 830 Brickell has top-class modern amenities including a fine-dining rooftop restaurant and lounge with amazing views of the City and Biscayne Bay, a world-class health and wellness center, private conference facilities, 24-hour concierge service, cafes, and street-level retail.
As professional and personal lives are becoming more intertwined – and people look to decrease their exposure to high-traffic public places, tenants are looking for amenities that allow them to spend more time within a single building and less time out and about.
The development and design teams have also incorporated impressive technology to promote health and wellness for all who enter the building to adapt to the ever-changing health environment. The tower has amenities that provide a safe and comfortable space for tenants to work in a post-COVID environment. Most of the fixtures will be touch-free, including contactless entry and exits. Through HEPA filtration, Ultraviolet lights in air-handling systems, bipolar ionization, and Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) sanitation, the air and water are purified for tenant health and wellness.
Prime location for high-end users
The city has seen technology, financial, and major corporate companies from around the world move to South Florida. The quality of life, lifestyle, low taxes, and fantastic weather appeal to the most discerning businesses. 830 Brickell is the space to help accommodate a new and better way of doing business. “830 Brickell will fulfill the ultimate wish list of high-end users from around the world, making it an iconic tower for a gateway city,” said Doronin.
“Our recent tenant announcements – including Microsoft, CI Financial, and Thoma Bravo – solidify 830 Brickell as the address of choice for the financial firms, tech companies, and multinational office users looking to expand or establish their presence in Miami and South Florida,” said Brian Gale, Vice-Chair of Cushman and Wakefield of Florida.
Jonathan Goldstein, CEO of Cain International, added, “Bringing Microsoft to the Brickell Financial District is a huge step forward and our team’s ongoing campaign to populate 830 Brickell office tower with best-in-class users from the technology, finance, and corporate sectors.”
Microsoft, one of the newest major corporations to lease space at 830 Brickell this year alone, signed a 50,000 square foot lease at the building, joining tech-focused private equity firm Thoma Bravo, which is taking 36,500 square feet at the tower. Mariana Castro, Microsoft’s Vice President, Sales, Marketing, and Operations, Latin America, shares the excitement, “I am excited to share that our Microsoft Latin America regional team has a new future home at 830 Brickell in Miami. This space will become our new regional hub in addition to supporting other Microsoft businesses.”
“830 Brickell is the perfect home for Thoma Bravo given its location in the city’s thriving business center and proximity to some of the city’s best outdoor spaces,” said Chip Virnig, a Partner at Thoma Bravo.
Additionally, CI Financial, a Canadian asset and wealth management behemoth, will open its new U.S. headquarters in Miami’s Brickell Financial District. They’ve leased 20,000 square feet in the state-of-the-art 830 Brickell tower. CI Financial will become the second-largest registered investment advisor in Florida after Raymond James.
The Brickell area is accepting the growth, and 830 Brickell is here at the right place at the right time for businesses to be bouncing back and the opportunity to work in the only luxury Class-A office building developed in Miami’s urban core in the past 10-years. Miami is a vibrant, multicultural city that has always been attractive to the world’s most successful individuals and families to call home. Now, it’s also growing as a world-class hub for business that offers a deep talent pool, an attractive location for recruiting, and a business-friendly environment.
Businesses that are interested in this limited occupancy development need to act fast. According to Gale, “Our team is entertaining interest from tenants representing more than 300,000 square feet of office space, which indicates that demand for office space is intensifying.”
830 Brickell is expected to be the official address of choice and premier office building in the region when it delivers in 2022.
