Momentum Continues: Prominent Venture Capital Firm Andreessen Horowitz Opening Miami Beach Office

Another major venture capital firm has just announced a Miami office.

Andreessen Horowitz, also known as a16z, said this morning that it would be opening an office in Miami Beach.

The new office will be in the newly built HQ building of Starwood Capital.

The company is one of the largest and most prominent venture capital firms in the world.

Since it was founded, a16z had been headquartered in Silicon Valley.

Now, the company headquarters will be “in the cloud.” In addition to Miami Beach, there will also be new offices in New York, and Santa Monica, while existing offices in Menlo Park and San Francisco will be maintained.

The Silicon Valley network effect had been weakened as a result of the remote work trend that emerged after the pandemic, according to a blog post by founder Ben Horowitz.

In order to be in tune with the new environment, the company said it was now creating physical offices where needed to support its teams and partners.

We need a big name in tech to be headquartered here. Burger King headquarters ain’t gonna cut it for an almost 7 million metro population

Clearly, NO tech companies or venture capital firms will open in Miami or Miami Beach until WE widen the sidewalks , extend the Metromover to everywhere, and get state of the art transportation that isn’t buses.

This example of the 900th new to market business moving here proves that no new businesses are moving here without my personal priorities being addressed.

lol true, most mid to upper level corporate types have kids, a spouse, a pet or 2. They care about affordable single family houses with a yard and good schools, maybe garage space for their SUVs. Having access to free Metromover rides from a roommate-riddled rental condo to a craft beer tent is quite low on their wish list.

I don’t think people in Miami realize what a big deal Andreeson Horowitz is. This is the absolute top of bay area VC firms, the inventors of modern VC. It’s not a big get in terms of space, but a massive one in terms of credibility. Very very hard to overstate.

dude, this is going to be an office for few assistants and big wigs coming seasonally to have fun, perhaps some tax shelter….

The center of mass of the Miami Tech scene has completely shifted with this move!
When I escaped San Francisco and came to Miami I was conflicted between being in the center of the tech action in Brickell, or having the beach as my backyard in Miami Beach. Since I had never lived by the beach I chose the latter, now it turns out the tech scene is coming to me, the office is 5 blocks from my house!

At least it’s not a warehouse or one story 1970s office park in Miramar.

Miramar didn’t have any office parks in the 1970s, or even in the 1980s.

Downtown or Brickell would have been a better location. I don’t know why out of towers have an obsession with Miami Beach.

Miami Beach has its share of problems. But that little area there is why miami is famous.

Miami Vice made Miami and Miami Beach famous. Miami Beach has a lot of potential but its government has historically shot itself in the foot. Read some of the Miami Herald articles from the 80s and 70s. The city government deliberately destroyed businesses is SoBe to be able to legally declare it a slum in order to more easily gentrify it and turn it into luxury. Didn’t really work out and if it wasn’t for Miami Vice it would still be a ghetto. The current mayor seems to be trying to follow a similar pattern.

Funny, I read about the Jackie Gleason Show broadcast from Miami Beach, the Beatles show in 1964, Cassius Clay whoppin’ Sonny Liston for the heavy weight title of world in the Miami Beach Convention Center, the National Historic Register’s youngest landmark in the Art Deco District, Pan Am airlines International aviation hub, etc. etc. etc. All that and more happened long before that TV show.
I’m guessing the “destroyed” businesses reference is probably the CRA south of 5th. Didn’t work out?
Apogee, Continuum, Portofino Tower, Murano, Murano Grande, Icon, etc are all some of the most expense condos per sq ft in Florida.
