As the second-largest community bank headquartered in Florida, Amerant Bank’s recent 10-year lease agreement at 10500 Marks Way in Miramar will help the Coral Gables-based financial institution expand its services in South Florida.
“The unique, free-standing flex office space offered by our client was the perfect fit for Amerant, offering ample parking and visibility,” says Jonathan Kingsley, Colliers‘ Executive Managing Director, an investment management company that represented Sunbeam Development, the landlord, in the transaction. “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 provides individuals and businesses in the U.S. and select international clients with deposit, credit and wealth management services.
“It was important we find a space that meets the evolving needs of our team members,” says Carlos Iafigliola, Chief Financial Officer of Amerant Bank. “After extensive research, we found this conveniently located, brand-new modern workspace will do exactly that.”
Since breaking ground in 1984, the Miramar Park of Commerce has transformed into the largest locally owned and managed Business Park in South Florida. It features over five million square feet of office/service, laboratory, pharmacy, light manufacturing and distribution space.
“Miramar Park of Commerce continues to attract new and established businesses,” says Ryan Goggins, Vice president, Acquisitions, Leasing and Marketing for Sunbeam, who, along with Maridee Bell, represented Miramar Park of Commerce. “We see Amerant Bank as an asset to the surrounding community where they can grow and prosper. 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.”
