Microsoft has announced plans to open offices at the under construction 830 Brickell tower across from Brickell City Centre.
The announcement is “rocket fuel” for Miami’s growth as a tech hub, Miami commissioner and Downtown Development Authority Chairman Manolo Reyes said in a statement. The offices are expected to become a magnet for other tech firms and the businesses that serve them, he said.
Microsoft’s newly signed a lease is for a total of 50,000 square feet of office space.
The new Brickell space will be home to the Microsoft Latin America regional hub. It will also support other Microsoft businesses, uniting employees across multiple locations, Microsoft Vice President Mariana Castro said in a LinkedIn post.
830 Brickell is a new Class A+ office tower under development by OKO Group and Cain International.
The 55-story, 640,000 square foot tower is being designed by renowned architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill. It will become the first stand-alone Class A office building developed in Brickell in more than a decade upon its completion in 2022.
OKO Group and Cain International were represented by the Cushman & Wakefield team of Brian Gale, Ryan Holtzman and Andrew Trench. Microsoft was represented by Alexander Brown, Executive Vice President with Colliers International.
