Brickell Area Renews 33,000 SF

Taylor & Mathis’ Andrew Trench has signed Hencorp Beckstone to a 20,000 square foot renewal at 777 Brickell in Miami’s Brickell Financial District and Brickell Bay Office Tower recently completed a 13,000 square foot lease renewal with Mallah Furman & Company, one of South Florida’s largest accounting firms.
The financial services firm conducted an extensive search for space before deciding to stay at 777 Brickell.  “While their search extended to some of the new office space on the market they ultimately chose to stay at 777 Brickell,” according to Trench.  “Newer isn’t always better.  777 Brickell is a prestigious office building, impeccably maintained with class A finishes.”
The ten year lease, which was co-brokered by William Holly of Pointe Group Advisors,  is valued at $7.5 million.
In addition to the Mallah Furman deal, another 24,500 square feet in new lease transactions were completed at Brickell Bay Office Tower. All told, 13 leases were finalized at the 280,500 square foot office tower, with seven transactions representing renewals and/or expansions by existing tenants. Financial terms of the agreements were not disclosed.
The completed leases bring Brickell Bay Office Tower’s total office occupancy to approximately 92%, ranking it among Miami’s most stable and well-occupied buildings. The transactions also coincide with a large-scale capital improvement program that has seen $3 million in upgrades to the building’s common areas, a complete overhaul of its elevator system, and the installation of new chillers that will enhance the building’s water and energy efficiency.
“While our leasing team has been successful attracting new users to the tower, we’ve always prioritized keeping our existing tenant base intact,” said Christian Driussi, Vice President of Leasing at Brickell Bay Office Tower. “These latest renewals underscore how a well-maintained building benefiting from stable ownership and a premium location can compete for top-tier tenants with newer assets in the market.”
