Billionaire Carl Icahn Is Moving His Offices To Sunny Isles Beach (Downtown Miami Is Too Far)

Carl Icahn is taking his talents to Sunny Isles Beach.

The billionaire investor has chosen the oceanfront city as the location for his Miami offices, according to the NY Post.

Icahn Enterprises will lease one and a half floors at the Milton Office Tower, which is being built at 16690 Collins Ave.

Icahn’s commute will be less than fifteen minutes from his home on Indian Creek island. By comparison, a drive to downtown Miami would take 40 minutes.

J. Milton Associates is building the 14-story tower with 107,274 square feet, of which 67,257 is leasable office at rates of $55 per square foot, according to Loopnet. Completion is scheduled for March 2020.

There will also be a six-floor parking garage, and 4,000 square feet of ground-floor restaurant and retail space.

I know we all want downtown Miami FL be the epicenter but remember NYC isn’t just Manhattan..I would prefer DWTN too, but this is better than nothing

It’s a stretch to call it a tower…

50 floors of parking and then a few office floors is a tower.

I think he’ll struggle to attract talent. Sunny Isles is a great place to own a condo if you’re rich but not a great place for an office tower. Then again, if all his rich employees move to Sunny Isles, then it’s a great location.

He does not have some massive team. While this is great, we are talking about 40-50 people here. Sunny Isles makes sense. Its a nice central location for wealthy employees who may want to live on the barrier islands.

ALL wealthy people wanna live on the barrier islands. Just a question whether they’re wealthy enough.

He just doesn’t want to pay the higher rents in downtown Miami.

hahahah Sunny Isles seriously!!!

They want to stay between Jews in Sunny Isle which makes sense for Mr Icahn! Please let them have so much fun together in rich boring ghetto Sunny Isles. I’m Jewish and I live in Brickell and it’s so much nicer! The great thing is that with all the traffic up there they will never bother us in the cool places in the REAL Miami! Good luck guys!

Great decision …… Sunny Isles , North Miami Beach , Aventura , Hallandale , Hollywood …… great spots for office buildings (between Miami and Ft lauderdale – Palm beach )

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Meh. I would rather it be downtown but Sunny Isles is a greta area too.
