Colliers International South Florida Brokers 112,690 Square Feet in Office Leases at 801 Brickell

Trophy office tower now 98 percent leased as Team Kingsley-Rutchik spearheads leasing activity at Colliers’ corporate office location

MIAMI (Oct. 15, 2019) – The Colliers International South Florida leasing advisory team headed by Stephen Rutchik and Jonathan Kingsley has successfully brokered 112,690 square feet of leases in the last 12 months, at 801 Brickell, the BOMA award-winning contemporary 28-story office tower featuring panoramic views of Brickell Key, Biscayne Bay and the city of Miami, as well as Colliers’ Brickell office location.

 

Executive Managing Director Stephen Rutchik, in collaboration with building ownership executed a strategic leasing plan that brought the asset to 98% leased. Rutchik credits this success to the landlord’s commitment to targeted capital expenditures and focus on redefining the tenant experience at 801 Brickell. The building underwent a significant physical transformation and increased from 67% leased to 98% leased since the leasing team began the assignment.

 

Additionally, the property served as Colliers’ flagship Brickell office location. The firm was in the process of building a new corporate office within the tower on a high floor with dramatic city views. Colliers, which has experienced tremendous growth in South Florida since moving into the iconic office tower in June of 2016, relinquished its original space to accommodate a 49,000 square foot lease to Spaces. The Leasing Team then leased that space to a new tenant, essentially leasing themselves out of the property, exemplifying Colliers’ “client-first” mission, entrepreneurial mindset and the robust demand for the property.

 

“801 Brickell’s incomparable main and main location and proximity to Brickell amenities, and strategic capital expenditures by ownership have elevated the tenant experience in the building. Leasing success at the building was a result of a laser focus on the goals of ownership and our new and existing tenants.” added Rutchik.

 

Built in 1985, the Class A, LEED (EB) Silver Certified 801 Brickell has attracted an impressive roster of notable tenants including MasterCard, Regus/Spaces, Atlantic Sapphire, Booking.com, Insightec, Legacy Wealth Advisors, Cassel Salpeter, Bessemer Trust Company, Odyssey RE and Komodo, among others.

 

“We are proud of the leasing advisory team’s success at 801 Brickell and their strategic guidance that has brought the tower to 98% leased in the last 12 months alone,” said Ryan Kratz, President of Colliers International's Southeast Region | US Brokerage. “Their professionalism and in-depth knowledge of the office market further establishes our presence in the industry and speaks to the strength of our ‘client-first’ mindset as well as the growing demand for Class A office spaces.”

 

801 Brickell is conveniently located in the booming epicenter of Brickell, offering tenants a car-free lifestyle near world-class amenities, retail and dining concepts with Brickell City Centre and Mary Brickell Village just steps away.
