Plaza Construction, CBRE and architect HOK have announced that they will oversee construction of a new corporate headquarters for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines in Miami, with groundbreaking to take place later this month.
“Plaza has been building iconic buildings in Miami since 2002 and is pleased to include Royal Caribbean in its portfolio,” says Brad Meltzer, President, Plaza Construction.
The $300 million project is being built at PortMiami, and the companies say it will become Miami’s “first true corporate campus.”
Workforce capacity will double from 2,200 to 4,200 employees, and the new state of the art campus will help attract world class talent to Miami, Royal Caribbean said.
At the center of the campus will be a 10-story, 350,000 square-foot building designed by HOK to look like a ship at rest. Landscaping will be comprised of indigenous flora.
There will also be a soccer field, volleyball court, basketball court, and fitness center for employees, and a 1,500-space parking garage with sustainability features, such as electric car chargers, photovoltaic cells, and rainwater collectors.
