57-Story 830 Brickell Approaches The Halfway Mark, With Active Negotiations Underway For Office Space

Construction at the 57-story 830 Brickell is kicking into high gear as multiple tenants continue active negotiations to lease space there.

There are several companies now in talks to lease hundreds of thousands of square feet of office space, the developers of the project announced today.

“The overall activity in the real estate market is beyond anything we have ever seen,” said CEO Vladislav Doronin, Chairman and CEO of developer OKO Group.

830 Brickell will include 650,000 square feet of Class A office space.

Construction has now accelerated to its fastest pace yet.

Contractors are now completing one full floor per week, and are expected to continue that pace until completion. They recently completed level 22.

Completion is scheduled for 2022.

Talk about been at the right place at the right time. The timing of this project was perfect.

It took courage and focus to commit to this when they did… Then at the beginning of the wuhan… they were probably quite concerned. Now they look smarter than most. But reality is that we won’t know for several years. See how long it takes to get to a reasonable occupancy rate.

Yeah probably because Melo builds remarkably shitty buildings. You know what they say “if it isn’t shit, it isn’t mellow.” OKO is on another level

OKO builds 830 Brickell and beautiful waterfront buildings. Melo builds like Tibo Hollo.
Hats off to anyone who can develop a tall building, but Mello and OKO shouldn’t be mentioned in the same thread.

I know being a developer is a risky business and it’s all about the market but… I still can’t understand why this is the office tower built in over a decade!? You can’t tell me that as a developer none could entice a company to move to Miami with better weather, no state tax and cheaper rent?

Theres some smaller office buildings that have been completed since then like the ones right by Brightline and a couple shorter ones that are part of Brickell City Center but I agree that it’s surprising. A lot of big companies besides Blackstone and Starwood still seem hesitant to move here. I keep reading about the rich people moving here who are at the top of the food chain of their respective companies but not so much moving their companies. It really triggered me when Oracle and Tesla chose to move to Austin instead of Miami. Go enjoy your landlocked city with a pretty unsubstantial airport.

This project will tell the truth of the market. If the market is where the reports state, this should be leased out at completion of construction. Time will tell.

I am so excited for this project to be completed! So glad a tall sleek office tower is being built, I believe the last large office tower built was more than 10 years ago with the Wells Fargo Center.

Well, remember that Brickell World Plaza (600 Brickell Ave) opened in Dec.2011 and the two non-highrise BCC towers a few years ago. I’m happy and welcome 830 Brickell to the district though.

Whatever happen to that other office building proposed on brickell ave but the city rejected it because it was to basic looking.

I forgot about that. It looked like a 1960s Chicago skyscraper, but had some nice curves in the window grid. Surprisingly, it was done by Arquitectonica. The board made them change the grid to be more irregularly spaced and glass a pukey variant of colors. I don’t know what they were smoking, but it should have been the other way around.

It’s supposed to bump out for more office space (wider than the 20+ stories now), so assuming more of the gold glass. Not sure what material will cover the elevator shaft wall that you can see now.

You’re right. I forgot about that. I hope is not a painted concrete wall like the Aria parking garage in Edgewater. The Bay Parc residents on the lower floors must hate facing the Aria’s white concrete wall.

Ironic to see one dinky little Metromover car with an ad saying “the future is made in Miami” while we can’t even attract enough big players from Doral and Miramar with our “world class” transit.

Downtown Mia vacancy rates were rising and rental rates were falling BEFORE Covid, back in 2019. Think it’s gotten better now? That’s why no other legit office tower projects are in the pipeline

Their only executed lease is with dead-man walking WeWorK….and yet they got venture capital bucks to go vertical anyway. Fools and their money soon to be parted.

Time to take off the rose-colored glasses and wake up to reality folks. Vacancy and lease rates don’t lie.

SLS having their views completely blocked looking east at the waterfront…oh well, we need class A office space like this much more than luxury condos so I don’t feel bad for those owners one bit!

It’s called due diligence. Too many idiot condo buyers in Miami who don’t read this site and research if neighboring parcels are slated for future development. The terrible quality of realtors in this city does them no help, they’re all clueless as well.

Anybody who thinks of buying downtown or Brickell should already know that one day there views may be blocked. But nobody moves where highrises are built just for the views… that’s just plain stupid.
