Success of 225 Midtown Crossing Spurs 222 Midtown

Bauen Capital and The Vagabond Group recently launched the leasing at 222 Midtown at Midtown Crossing, the next building in the Midtown Crossing Development site. The announcement comes on the heels of Blanca Commercial Real Estate, fully leasing their project, 225 Midtown at Midtown Crossing. 222 Midtown is a unique Class A office development featuring a contemporary industrial-designed, eight-story mixed-use building. 

“The successful leasing of 225 Midtown at such a rapid pace is just one telling sign that the Midtown District is perfectly positioned to capture pent-up demand from existing businesses and companies migrating to Miami that are seeking a unique office experience, and it is poised for continued growth,” Avra Jain says, Founder of The Vagabond Group. 

Midtown Crossing is centered in the Midtown District, offering luxury retail, modern living, quality dining and numerous amenities like hotels, art exhibits and culture venues. The property’s leasing team is led by Nicole Kaiser, Associate Vice President of Blanca Commercial Real Estate; Danet Linares, Executive Vice Chairman; and Tere Blanca, Chairman & CEO.                                                                                                    

“This one-of-a-kind, Class A office destination holds nearly 120,000 square feet of office space across 222 and 225 Midtown and features Miami’s best amenities where creatives, entrepreneurs and business influencers thrive in the heart of Miami’s most sought-after neighborhood,” Nicole Kaiser says, Associate Vice President of Blanca Commercial Real Estate. “With a high demand for boutique office space away from congestion, Midtown Crossing, located at the junction of Midtown, Design District and Edgewater, offers the ideal choice to address lifestyle and entertainment in a cultural working environment. 222 and 225 Midtown appeals to full-time and part-time residents as a superior location to Brickell, Downtown, Wynwood and Miami Beach.” 

The new office development is slated to commence construction in early 2023, with move-ins expected to start within 18 months.

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.
