Spirit Airlines Inc. has agreed to stay put at the Miramar Park of Commerce, where the company has based its South Florida operations since 1999.
The company announced Friday that it signed a 70,819-square-foot lease renewal at the 2844 and 2854 Corporate Way facility it calls the Spirit Support Center. The discount airline is expanding its presence at the facility by 14,625 square feet of office space. Financial terms of the 10-year lease were not disclosed.
Spirit moved its headquarters from Detroit to Miramar 14 years ago. The low-cost carrier now has more than 1,300 employees in South Florida.
Miramar Park of Commerce was developed by Sunbeam Properties Inc. Sunbeam vice presidents Andrew Ansin and Maridee Bell represented the park in the transaction. Studley Inc. senior managing director Chris Lovell, executive vice president Greg Katz and senior managing director Roy Abernathy represented Spirit.
The transaction is Broward County’s largest office lease in 2013, according to Studley.
“Our team spent over a year evaluating multiple cities and options,” Lovell said in a statement. “We are pleased that the employment and economic opportunities in South Florida and the partnership approach of Miramar Park of Commerce provided such convincing reasons for Spirit’s long-term commitment to this region.”
