With a spectacular $1.6 million, 18-foot sculpture titled “Mariposas,” by artist Manolo Valdés as its anchor, Milton Tower in Sunny Isles Beach represents premier South Florida office space. Someone big—the Brooklyn-born billionaire Carl Icahn—took notice of the seven-month-old, 102,000-square-foot edifice and decided to decamp from New York. J. Milton & Associates, a top Miami real estate development company since 1963, entered into a lease with an entity affiliated with Icahn Enterprises L.P. for a 23,463 square-foot office. “It was an easy decision for our company to choose Milton Tower as our new company headquarters,” says Hunter Gary, Icahn Enterprises’ senior managing director, who cites “an office space that fits the unique dynamics of our company, along with oceanfront and Intracoastal views, building features and easy access to all the main roads.”
Milton Tower completed construction in March 2020 and created a custom-made contemporary office space in the Penthouse and 12th floor of the Tower tailored to the overall business needs of Icahn Enterprises. “As our first tenant, we are excited to have Icahn Enterprises, one of the most prestigious businesses, call Milton Tower their home,” says Joseph Milton, CEO of J. Milton & Associates. “We are aimed to work with tenants such as Icahn Enterprises that are seeking a sophisticated, secure and hi-tech office space in Sunny Isles Beach.” The modern tower’s executive suites range in size from 3,000 to 13,900 square feet, and can be customized for an array of tenants and businesses. Law firms, financial institutions, technology companies, accounting and professional service firms are focused on recruiting and retaining talent, and accessibility will drive decisions for tenants.
