Pembroke Pointe, a new LEED® Silver-certified office environment at 880 SW 145th Avenue in Pembroke Pines, recently welcomed new tenant Elizabeth Arden to its roster. In a relocation from Miramar, Elizabeth Arden is bringing one of the beauty empire’s four global headquarters to 18,500 square feet at the new office building.
Widely considered the founder of the American beauty industry, Elizabeth Arden selected the second floor of Pembroke Pointe for one of the firm’s four global headquarters, joining its legendary home on New York City’s Fifth Avenue and two other global headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and Stamford, Connecticut.
Last month, Duke announced that GMMI, a pioneer in the delivery of managed healthcare and cost containment services, will occupy the entire top floor of Pembroke Pointe in an expansion and consolidation of offices formerly located at Lake Shore Plaza II in the Sawgrass International Corporate Park at Sunrise, Florida.
Commencement of a parking expansion project at the property was also announced.
Surface parking around the building will increase from a ratio of 4.2 spaces per 1,000 square feet to 6.1 spaces per 1,000 square feet for office tenants on the upper floors, and 5.1 spaces per 1,000 square feet for tenants on the first floor, as a result of the new parking construction. Property owner Duke Realty will manage the parking project, which is expected to be completed in September.
“As the flagship property of South Florida’s premier new office destination, we want to ensure that we provide all the amenities tenants are looking for,” said Ed Mitchell, Senior Vice President of Duke Realty. “The parking expansion comes in direct response to the significant market demand for Class A quality office space with high parking ratios in southwest Broward County. This strategic expansion will put Pembroke Pointe in a league of its own as no other office building in the southwest Broward office submarket can offer tenants as high of a parking ratio.”
CBRE’s Christopher Gallagher and Diana Parker have been appointed as exclusive leasing representation for the office park.
