As the office market in South Florida continues to rebound, Amerant Bank, N.A. signed a 10-year lease for a 56,494-square-foot office space in the Miramar Park of Commerce at 10500 Marks Way.
Colliers’ Executive Managing Director Jonathan Kingsley and Managing Director Jarred Goodstein represented Sunbeam Development, the landlord, in the transaction. CBRE’s Gordon Messinger represented Amerant Bank, the tenant.
“The unique, free-standing flex office space offered by our client was the perfect fit for Amerant, offering ample parking and visibility,” said Kingsley. “We were under a tight timeline and received interest from many prospective tenants, but we were able to secure the best fit for everyone involved. Miramar Park of Commerce is a very sought-after location for this type of tenant. Case in point, the space is located next to a 48,000-square-foot building that we previously leased in its entirety to another high quality tenant.”
Amerant Bank is the second-largest community bank headquartered in Florida and is a subsidiary of Amerant Bancorp Inc. (NASDAQ: AMTB and AMTBB). Headquartered in Coral Gables, the bank provides individuals and businesses in the U.S., as well as select international clients, with deposit, credit, and wealth management services. Over 300 Amerant Bank team members will occupy the new office space as early as Fall 2022.
“Miramar Park of Commerce continues to attract new and established businesses. We see Amerant Bank as an asset to the surrounding community where they can grow and prosper,” said Ryan Goggins, Vice President, Acquisitions, Leasing and Marketing for Sunbeam, who along with Maridee Bell represented the Park. “Flex office space, particularly over the last year, is attractive to companies looking for alternatives to traditional office space. At the Miramar Park of Commerce, we take a personalized approach to tenant relationships and work diligently to meet their needs efficiently and cost effectively.”
Since breaking ground in 1984, Sunbeam has developed the Miramar Park of Commerce into the largest locally owned and managed business Park in South Florida, with more than five million square feet of office/service, laboratory, pharmacy, light manufacturing and distribution space.
“It was important we find a space that meets the evolving needs of our team members,” said Carlos Iafigliola, Chief Financial Officer, Amerant Bank. “After extensive research, we found this conveniently located, brand-new modern workspace will do exactly that.”
