Miami Tower secures 32,500 sf of leases
Two companies are now leasing a combined 32,500 square feet of space at the Miami Tower in downtown Miami, bringing its occupancy to 87 percent, according to a release.
Sumitomo Corp. of Americas, the U.S. arm of Japanese trade conglomerate Sumitomo Corp., paid $220 million for the 47-story, 619,00-square-foot tower at 100 Southeast Second Street in 2016.
Transwestern’s Glenn Gregory and Christopher Dubberly brokered the leases. Prior to Transwestern, the ownership brought on JLL as well as brokerage Cushman & Wakefield to negotiate leases.
BDO USA, of the global accounting network BDO International, is moving out of its Brickell and Coral Gables offices and into a 23,000-square-foot lease at the tower. Dubberly represented the Sumitomo and Gregory represented BDO.
Chartwell Law Offices also signed a 9,500-square-foot lease at the building. The law firm is relocating from its Southeast Financial Center in downtown Miami. Gregory and Dubberly represented the landlord and Franklin Street’s Tom Farmer and Gola Corporate Real Estate’s Eric Wahlers represented the tenant.
