Microsoft to Open Miami Office

Microsoft has become the latest corporation to move into downtown Miami after announcing it will open a new office in the city’s Brickell Financial District. 830 Brickell is the first stand-alone Class A+ office tower to be developed in the area and is also slated to house tech-focused private equity firm Thoma Bravo, taking 36,500 square feet in the building.

“I am excited to share that our Microsoft Latin America regional team has a new future home at 830 Brickell in Miami,” says Mariana Castro, Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Operations for Latin America at Microsoft. “This space will become our new regional hub in addition to supporting other Microsoft businesses. This move will unite employees across multiple locations supporting collaboration, inspiration, and productivity. The new location will also serve as a bridge to deepen relationships with our customers while navigating the ever-changing hybrid work environment and maintaining Microsoft’s high standards around sustainability and accessibility.”

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. 

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 technology industry.

“The news that Microsoft is headed to downtown Miami is rocket fuel for our city’s growth as a technology hub that’s capable of attracting the largest firms in the world,” says Manolo Reyes, City of Miami Commissioner and Chairman of the Miami Downtown Development Authority. “Microsoft’s office in the Brickell Financial District will be a magnet for other tech firms and the businesses that serve them, and that activity will have a direct impact on our Miami economy. The Miami DDA has been recruiting tech companies dating back nearly a decade, and the arrival of Microsoft will prove invaluable when it comes to showcasing the benefits of doing business in Downtown Miami.”

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.
