Gym Chain Inks 8.5K-SF Brickell Lease

JLL announced the negotiation of a lease to bring Action Black, a leading fitness and wellness brand founded in Colombia with over 30-plus locations internationally, to Panorama Tower, a premier condominium at 1101 Brickell Bay Drive in Miami’s Brickell Financial District that is considered the tallest residential building south of New York.

The 8,501-square-foot lease marks Action Black’s third location to open in the U.S., with the brand planning an explosive expansion that targets another 10 to 15 new gym locations in key markets across Florida.

JLL Senior Vice President Jonathan Rosen represented the tenant, Action Black, in the lease negotiations. Landlord representation was provided by Jake Freeman, Associate Vice President; Kevin Gonzalez, Senior Vice President; and Ana Paula, Vice President, of Colliers.

The condominium Panorama Tower is owned by Florida East Coast Realty.

Founded in 2015 in Medellín, Colombia, Action Black has become the largest boutique gym chain in the country and the brand plans to grow to over 150 clubs worldwide over the next few years with locations in Spain, Portugal, Mexico, China, Dubai, and more. Currently, the fitness concept has US locations in New York and will soon be opening its first flagship in Florida at Miami’s Panorama Tower. With over 10 years of experience in the health, wellness, and fitness industry, the company utilizes technology, design, psychology, and neuroscience to build methods and environments that enhance lifestyle habits in a scalable and sustainable way.

Located in the heart of Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, Panorama Tower provides Action Black a prime spot within the city’s premier business and residential district. The gym’s location also offers convenient access to public transit options such as the Metromover, Metrorail, and the city’s free trolley service. The fitness brand will occupy the condo tower’s second floor and feature a private entrance exclusively for members.

“With the recent surge in development activity in the Brickell area, securing a leading international tenant like Action Black in the heart of the thriving commercial and residential district is a pivotal move that will help propel the brand’s expansion growth across Florida,” said JLL’s Jonathan Rosen. “As the demand for unique fitness experiences in urban centers continues to rise nationwide, securing a lease with the dynamic brand Action Black is particularly noteworthy and will serve the rising population of working professionals and residents in the vibrant Brickell community.”

Action Black offers a variety of classes and gym experiences under one roof including boxing, bootcamp, abs and glutes, cycling, yoga, dance, and personal training. The concept’s facilities are designed to provide a comprehensive fitness experience, with up to 12 different rooms for various types of workouts.

“Action Black couldn’t be more excited to bring our high-energy, dynamic fitness brand to the world-renowned Brickell market,” said Oscar Toro, Managing Member of Action Black. “With a fitness offering unlike any other, we look forward to welcoming the Brickell neighborhood through our doors in 2025. We are all of your favorite workouts under one roof – get ready Miami!”
