Optima at Aventura signs new tenants

The pandemic didn’t stop an Aventura office complex from attracting new tenants.

The Real Deal reports that Optima signed four new tenants, joining Soffer Health Institute, SimpleMD and Benihana headquarters.

Located at 21500 Biscayne Blvd., Optima, which is set for completion in early 2021, spans 36,000 square feet and across three buildings: the White Tower, the Red Tower and the Onyx Tower. The new tenants include asset management firm Kawa Capital, private equity firm WM Partners, real estate investment firm Aurele Properties and medical spa Makeover Aesthetics. Kawa is the first tenant to sign for Onyx, which will stand at 28 stories.

The deals were brokered from March to September by Blanca Commercial Real Estate. It’s news that bodes well for the office market in Miami-Dade. Blanca founder and CEO Tere Blanca told the Real Deal that Optima leasing continued as expected even during the pandemic. “We are finding that most companies are eager to get back to the office, and are looking ahead to provide a long-term workplace experience that especially gives employees flexible spaces to work safely,” she said.

Hopefully, the trend will continue as office projects come to completion. Last year, the Miami Herald reported that in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Aventura, Brickell, Wynwood and the Design District, there were 1,785,666 square feet of Class A office space being developed as of the third quarter of 2019, according to JLL, a real estate services firm.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
