CI Financial to Launch U.S. Headquarters at Miami’s 830 Brickell Office Tower

Although 830 Brickell is not slated to open until next year, it continues to attract high-end businesses. CI Financial Corp., a leading Canadian asset and wealth management firm, has become the latest company to announce plans to lease office space in the Class A+ office tower.

“Miami is an incredible place to establish our U.S. headquarters and support our fast-growing U.S. business,” says Kurt MacAlpine, Chief Executive Officer of CI Financial. “It serves as the next logical step for our expansion plans as we work to build the leading wealth management platform in the country. In addition, Miami is a vibrant, multicultural city that offers a deep talent pool, an attractive location for recruiting and a very business-friendly environment. Locating at 830 Brickell puts CI at the heart of this dynamic city and its growing financial community.”

Currently under construction, 830 Brickell is a 55-floor, 640,000 square foot tower slated to open in 2022. The project is a joint venture between developers OKO Group and Cain International. It was designed by architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, with interiors by Italian architecture and design company Iosa Ghini Associati. Amenities featured in the building include a top-notch health and wellness center with panoramic views, a first-class restaurant and open-air rooftop lounge, a private conference facility for tenants, and 24-hour concierge service. 

CI Financial is the second significant financial tenant to lease space at 830 Brickell, with private equity firm Thoma Bravo planning to occupy 36,500 square feet of office space in the tower. Software technology giant Microsoft also announced plans to occupy 50,000 square feet in the building.

“We are thrilled by CI Financial’s decision to make 830 Brickell the home of its U.S. headquarters,” says Jonathan Goldstein, CEO of Cain International. “This move demonstrates the firm’s commitment to Miami and underscores the city’s rise as a hub for global and domestic businesses. Attracting a group like CI Financial is precisely what we envisioned when we decided to develop this best-in-class office tower in the Brickell Financial District.”

Officials from the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), which has been at the forefront of bringing tech firms to Miami, anticipate Microsoft’s move to the area will further enhance the downtown location as a significant player in the financial industry.

“The steady flow of financial firms into Downtown Miami is strengthening our position as Wall Street of the South, creating job opportunities for locals, bringing new life to our city streets, and supporting existing businesses in our community,” says Miami DDA Chairman and City Commissioner Manolo Reyes. “The arrival of CI Financial reflects the Miami DDA’s ongoing pursuit of finance and technology firms across the U.S. and abroad. Each day, companies from New York, Chicago, Connecticut, California and around the world are moving or expanding to Miami and growing their businesses, hiring talent, and offering their employees an improved lifestyle along with cost savings.”

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.
