Class A office building coming to Miami Beach

In construction, few events are as exciting as a project topping off, especially when it’s a project that welcomes the trend of businesses setting up shop in Miami.

Starwood Property Trust (an affiliate of the private investment firm Starwood Capital Group) and Miami-based real estate investment and development company Integra Investments recently announced construction for 2340 Collins Avenue in Miami Beach has topped off.

The 144,430-square-foot Class A office building will become Starwood Property Trust corporate headquarters upon its completion in late 2021. With Starwood occupying a little more than half of the six-story building, the remaining space, already approaching full occupancy, will be leased to third party tenants with a focus on family offices. Designed by architectural firm Gensler, with interiors by Clive Lonstein, Inc., the building will be occupied by 300 employees and feature 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail, as well as a 277-space parking garage with valet service. Collins’ newest building will also be ringed by greenery and feature an array of outdoor wood clad “cabanas” on each floor, as well as a fourth-floor garden.

“We have a unique opportunity to deliver much-needed Class A office space,” said Nelson Stabile, principal of Integra Investments. “The delivery of 2340 Collins Ave transforms Miami Beach into a vibrant mixed-use community. Starwood’s prime location provides tenants with swift accessibility to major crossroads, affording patrons the ability to avoid nearby traffic congestion.”

General contractor CoastalBrodson, a joint venture of two premier South Florida builders, hosted a topping off celebration earlier this month. The property, neighboring 1 Hotel & Homes and The Gates Hotel South Beach, brings the first Class A office design of its kind to Miami Beach in nearly a decade and will be easily accessible to to Alton Road and Indian Creek.

Bringing world-class, ‘Class A’ office design to Miami Beach, the first of its kind to the sub-market in nearly a decade, 2340 Collins Avenue will be an urban oasis offering the latest trends in modern work life. Its design pays homage to the area’s rich architectural history of Art Deco style, yet contemporizes its features with a modern glass window façade.  Natural elements and expressed stucco floor plates seamlessly blend with lush landscape and water features, inspired by Starwood Capital Group’s hospitality roots, who designed, owned and continue to operate the adjacent award-winning 1 Hotel South Beach, and home base heritage.

The project will certainly make Miami Beach city leaders happy as they’re hoping to attract more construction of Class A offices to attract an influx of people and businesses to Florida. Locals may also expect more change on Collins Avenue as the Miami Herald reports that the commission may decide on zoning changes to allow multi-story projects and a 25-foot height increase for the area in 2021.

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.
