Less than a year since its reopening, the newly renovated CocoWalk mixed-use property announces its retail and office components are fully leased in Miami’s vibrant Coconut Grove neighborhood.
Following an extensive multimillion-dollar renovation, the property now features 150,000 square feet of prime retail space leased to leading local, national and international restaurant and retail brands and a newly built, 85,745-square-foot office building that is home to regional and global businesses. The mixed-use property is owned by a joint venture comprised of Federal Realty Investment Trust, The Comras Company and Grass River Property.
“The office and retail leasing success CocoWalk has achieved demonstrates how Coconut Grove is becoming a leading destination for business and leisure,” said Stuart Biel, senior vice president of regional leasing at Federal Realty Investment Trust. “The diverse mix of service-oriented retail, chef-driven restaurant concepts and entertainment the reimagined CocoWalk offers will serve locals and visitors alike, while also providing onsite amenities to the daytime population occupying our office spaces.”
Along with reaching 100% leased, CocoWalk has completed leasing its office spaces attracting seven companies representing the financial and investment, hospitality and cruise industries, amongst the fastest growing in the region.
The latest businesses to ink office leases are: cruise line Azamara; Creating Culinary Communities, or C3, a company led by Sam Nazarian, the founder of global hospitality firm sbe Entertainment Group that operates multiple SLS, Mondrian and Delano hotel locations; Uno Management Services; Lagoon Advisors, an investment banking advisory firm; Baymount Management, an investment management firm; The Jordan Company, a private equity firm with offices in New York, NY; Stamford, CT and Chicago, IL; and OC Investment Management, LLC.
Following the extensive remodel, CocoWalk now features three levels of prime retail space, the newly built class A office building One Cocowalk and renovated office space on the property’s west side known as Two Cocowalk. New-to-market tenant The Jordan Company is leasing 12,717 square feet; Uno Management Services will occupy 8,273 square feet; Lagoon Advisors will take 3,510 square feet; Baymount Management 1,928 square feet; and OC Investment Management, LLC another 1,247 square feet at One Cocowalk.
