Developers say a 57-story tower in Miami’s Brickell Financial District has reached the 22nd floor.
OKO Group and Cain International’s 830 Brickel is “rising fast”, they say in a statement. “With one full level expected to be completed every week going forward, 830 Brickell is on track to be delivered in 2022.”
The project is the vision of OKO Group chair and CEO Vladislav Doronin and Cain International, a privately held investment firm led by CEO Jonathan Goldstein, which claims to have over $6.3 billion in real estate equity, debt and leisure business investments.
“The start of construction on our office floors is an important milestone as we continue to capture heavy interest from individuals and businesses looking to relocate to South Florida,” said Brian Gale, vice-chairman at Cushman & Wakefield, who oversees leasing.
“When our firm first set out to develop 830 Brickell, Miami was already at a tipping point for becoming a global city and domestic hub, and now the overall activity in the real estate market is beyond anything we have ever seen,” Doronin said in a March 24 statement. “The built-in advantage of having a blank canvas and total flexibility to customize your office, paired with the latest in technology and amenities, makes 830 Brickell the best-in-class tower for attracting out-of-state tenants looking to expand their footprints in South Florida.”
“As the only office tower of its kind in the Miami market, 830 Brickell is perfectly positioned to benefit from what we believe will be a sustainable trend of talent migration to the area. We’re pleased with the momentum we’ve seen to-date, which indicates a growing desire for top professional services, finance and tech companies to establish long-term bases in South Florida,” said Jonathan Goldstein, co-founder and CEO of Cain. “As we enter into a post-pandemic economy, we remain confident that Miami will see continued interest from both domestic and international businesses further endorsing its position as a global gateway city.”
830 Brickell’s recently completed parking facility features an aluminum kinetic wall with metallic squares in constant motion powered by Biscayne Bay breezes. Above the garage, the tower will be clad with 1,030,000 sq. ft. of uninterrupted glass, the statement says.
