First Ever: 55-Story Brickell Office Tower 100% Leased Before Completion

A giant new lease has just been finalized at the 55-story 830 Brickell office tower.

It makes 830 Brickell the first ever trophy office tower in Miami fully leased upon completion, its developers said.

The newly signed lease is also the largest new-to-market office lease signed in Miami in 2022

Kirkland & Ellis, the world’s largest law firm by revenue, leased 115,000 square feet of Class A office space – totaling six floors.

The tower is said to be commanding some of the highest Class A rental rates in the country, with the last few leases signed in the building fetching between $120-$150 per square foot, according to JLL’s Q3 Miami office market report.

OKO Group and Cain International are developing the tower in a partnership.

International law firms Sidley Austin, Winston & Strawn LLP and Baker McKenzie also recently signed leases at 830 Brickell and will occupy a combined 100,000-plus square feet of space.

Other tenants that have announced plans to open offices at 830 Brickell include Microsoft, financial services company Citadel, New York-based insurance firm A-CAP, private equity firm Thoma Bravo, CI Financial, Marsh Insurance, AerCap and others.

830 Brickell’s ownership was represented by Cushman & Wakefield’s Brian Gale, Ryan Holtzman and Andrew Trench. Kirkland & Ellis was represented by Neil Goldmacher, Mitchell Millowitz and Ryan Rosalsky of Newmark, and Kevin Kushner of CBRE.

“830 Brickell is the only Class A-plus office building in Miami history to be fully pre-leased ahead of its completion, with the majority of its tenants being major new-to-market corporations,” said Andrew Trench, Executive Director of Cushman & Wakefield.

830 Brickell was designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, with interiors by Italian architecture and design company Iosa Ghini Associati.

The tower’s amenities will include a rooftop bar/lounge and restaurant, a health and wellness center, conferencing facilities, an outdoor terrace, cafés and street-level retail.

Multiple transit options are nearby, a press release said, including Metrorail and Metromover, Brightline, walking paths, cycling lanes and bay access points.

Brickell hardly has any nightlife…if anything it needs more. What world class city is just housing and offices ? You need balance. Only nightlife is on the very edge of downtown with Space and Eleven 11. Stop being unrealistic trying to turn a city of many things into your own personal vision. Nightlife is part of the fabric of Miami.

Honestly it’s been SO loud it’s almost driving me away, esp. Brickell and Miami Aves. The late night crowd and car revers (should be banned) made it impossible to sleep. Fun to go out to eat or dance. Brickell needs to build up more nice residential streetscapes.

Is that a retirement place? Love city life, walking to work and going out. That was 2-6am. Don’t see why there can’t be places for everyone in a city, including chill but lively streetscapes.

Brickell Bay Drive is quieter and walking distance to the Miami/Brickell Ave scene and offices, but it’s full or almost full with development. It’s hard to get a vacant unit on Brickell Bay Drive. They go quick for a high dollar.

Hmm maybe some of us see things differently. Miami and Brickell have the most nightlife in the nation – what it’s trying to add now are offices and residential-family areas. That’s an area that needs filling to be world class.

To me nightlife is staying out for a drink after dinner 😂 not more 24/7 clubs where people lose track of days. I mean how many of those does one city need?

Agree it seems Miami and Brickel Aves are great spots for more super tall office towers, and they lease up quick! Good for Miami, good for US economy.

More HQs coming to Miami, where employees love going into work! Miami leads the nation with its top of the class highly-educated professional workforce with strongest work ethic, and the City offers greater work life/ balance than other cities. Go Brickell!

He means remote work versus working in an office. He is an office space cheerleader. Perhaps a commercial real estate agent, or works for a developer. Everyone’s got an angle.

Nope just worked remote for a long time during pandemic and now in an office. Torn because I love both, so hope both stay. Shouldn’t be one or the other, but some people seem afraid to go in and out of touch or not really working.

I honestly doubt it… you should look into the current office development going on in NYC. They have multiple massive super tall that blow even one Brickell city centre out of the water square footage wise. Miami will continue to grow but NYC will alway remain #1

One of Miami’s biggest problems is a lack of quality educational institutions

“with the strongest work ethic”
Have you been to any large US city? The Miami 9-5 mentality is among the most lax in the country.

Does it ever occur to you that you may be hanging out with the wrong crowd to be chiming in on this subject matter?

830 Brickell doesn’t fill up this fast, nor does Blackstone move 200 innovation center jobs downtown if they are unable to hire or attract workers.

The market speaks, and it is telling you that Miami is the place to be. The people listening are the people that will be living in Brickell and earning high wages.

Will the tower have a company name at the top? I know its usually banks, but Microsoft would look pretty cool

Maybe instead of an old school billboard style name, it can be a giant 3D QR Code, so its more beautiful, creates a consumer experience, tracks ground viewership, and can easily be changed at low cost if ownership changes.

Just an alternative if done discretely and disguised into architecture. I see why some would think it’s not a good place for a logo.

Filling a 600k sf tower isn’t much of an achievement, particularly when it’s the first major office tower built in a long time.

I bet that was mostly before the pandemic. People woke up. NY isn’t the only place for work advancement. NY was built on premise of hyper centralization, and most industries are decentralized and nationalized now.

Some cities have lots of empty offices. This is indicative of Miami’s appeal in the business sector and ability to be an HQ hub for the US.
