Hedge fund giant Citadel is now conducting a global architecture competition for its planned bayfront Brickell headquarters office tower, Bloomberg is reporting.
Up to 1.8 million square feet can be built, according to Andy Gloor, the CEO of developer Sterling Bay, which is managing the project for Citadel.
