The Main Las Olas Reaches Full Office Leasing Capacity 

The Main Las Olas’ office component reached 100% leased two years after receiving its temporary certificate of occupancy in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Blanca Commercial Real Estate, an independently owned, full-service commercial real estate services firm in South Florida, manages the 1.4 million-square-foot property. 

“We are thrilled to reach this milestone,” Danet Linares says, Executive Vice Chairman of Blanca Commercial Real Estate. “Over the last year, flight-to-quality remained at the forefront of all major office moves and the uptick of new-to-market demand translated into the stellar performance of new office developments and top-tier existing Class A office space.” 

The mixed-use office, residential and retail community features Class A offices, high-end architecture, chic residences and hospitality and retail businesses for dining and shopping. The 25-story building features a 387,402-square-foot tower, 17,355 square feet of retail space, a 2,951-square-foot fitness center, a 3,360-square-foot office lounge and conference center, and an outdoor terrace featuring a fire pit, bar and glass floor oculus with panoramic views of Las Olas with event and conference space. 

The property’s leasing team is led by Danet Linares, executive vice chairman of Blanca Commercial Real Estate, alongside Christina Jolley, senior vice president; Sky Jones, associate vice president; and Tere Blanca, chairman & CEO. The Main Las Olas was developed by Shorenstein Properties LLC and Stiles and designed by the nationally acclaimed architecture firm Cooper Carry.

“We are extremely pleased with the success of The Main Las Olas, the first luxury office of its kind,” Charles Malet says, president and Chief Investment Officer at Shorenstein. “The property underscores Shorenstein’s continued focus on developing differentiated, best-in-class office properties in attractive and growing markets. As preferences for office spaces continue to evolve, we believe these types of top-quality spaces will remain the desired choice for tenants nationwide.”

Moxies and Fogo de Chão occupy the anchor retail on the ground floor of The Main Las Olas. Other tenants include:

  • JPMC 
  • Marcum
  • RSM 
  • Starr Indemnity
  • Raymond James
  • Cherry Bekaert 
  • Shutts & Bowen
  • Synovus Bank
  • Walker Dunlop 
  • Starboard Value 


“Along with our partner Shorenstein, we set out to establish a new bar for luxury urban office, not only in Fort Lauderdale but in all of South Florida,” Ken Stiles says, CEO of Stiles. “The Main Las Olas offers a truly distinctive integrated work, life and entertainment experience with an unmatched level of quality, amenities and design. We are proud to have had the opportunity to continue our 72-year track record of quality development with this iconic project.”

Drew Limsky



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.
