Starwood Capital Breaks Ground On New Headquarters In Miami Beach

Construction is now underway on an office building that will become the headquarters for Starwood Capital Group.

Architect Gensler is designing the building and confirmed on its website that the property would become Starwood’s headquarters. The plans had originally been filed last year under a company controlled by billionaire Barry Sternlicht, the company founder who now lives in Miami Beach.

Gensler says it is the first ever Class A office building in Miami Beach, and the city’s first new corporate office building in more than 20 years.

Starwood has $55 billion under management, with 3,800 employees in 11 offices worldwide. It was the largest REIT in Connecticut before relocating to Miami.

The new six-story headquarters is being built at 2340 Collins Avenue, across from the 1 Hotel that was redeveloped by the company.

A total of 136,342 square feet of class A office space is being built.

From Collins Avenue, a paseo lined with shops and restaurants will include 8,088 square feet of retail space. Flowing waterfalls will be built next to a walkway.

A garage with 305 parking spaces is also part of the plans.

Great project all around. They used 100+ bike parking spaces and showers to reduce their parking requirement.

Nothing like the inspiration happening in Miami Beach.
I guess architects this side of the bay don’t believe in driving across the causeways

Except when they poo-poo’d Baylink or Metrorail.

I wonder if most of their employees live on the beach. I’ve always felt the beach is a horrible place to commute to if you live out in the suburbs.

I’m guessing the number of parking spaces 305 was just a coincidence?

I wonder what effect this will have on the Gates Hotel. It has already been through a couple of renovations, first becoming the A Loft, then bought by Starwood/Marriott and changed to Doubltetree Gates Hotel brand. At one point the Continental Restaurant was connected in front and which was a nice spot.
