Avison Young To Spearhead Leasing Of 550,000 SF Of Brand New Office Space In Sunrise – CRE Sources
Avison Young has been awarded the exclusive leasing assignment for 550,000 square feet of office space within Metropica, the greatly anticipated urban high street development encompassing 65-acres and more than 4 million square feet of world-class residential, commercial, hotel, conference and public spaces at 1800 NW 136th Avenue in Sunrise.
Avison Young’s Principals Keith O’Donnell, Michael Fay, and Donna Abood will strategically market Metropica’s two office components: 150,000 square feet of class A office atop of street-level retail to the south of the project and 400,000 square foot business park campus with parking garages to the north.
“In line with the recent trend of suburban office markets throughout Broward County outpacing core / central business district occupancies, West Broward continues to attract business seeking to take advantage quality space at the point of need and speed – increasing productivity by decreasing commute time,” said O’Donnell. “As the first new office construction in the Sawgrass submarket since 2008, Metropica’s office space will attract businesses from all three counties seeking to be more centrally located in order to better serve their clients /consumers and draw from the large potential workforce residing along South Florida’s western boundary.”
Located in the heart of one of South Florida’s most vibrant regions – Metropica is located at the center of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. Bordered by the Sawgrass Expressway, I-75, and I-595, Metropica is in close proximity to Florida’s Turnpike and I-95, and amenities and lifestyle destinations within and outside of the mixed-use development.
“We are excited to be working with Avison Young for the leasing of our expansive office portion at Metropica,” explains Erick Collazo, Director of Development for Metropica. “Through their strategic partnerships we are confident they will attract tenants that desire to work in a regional epicenter with the best of dining, entertainment and shopping all within walking distance.”
At its completion, the mixed-use planned community envisioned by Joseph Kavana of KGH International Development LLC, will offer approximately 1,900 high-rise residential units and additional experiences including world-class shopping and dining, a five-star health and wellness center, a Beach Club, several public spaces dedicated to visual and performing arts, and additional elevated recreational amenities such as a tennis club, mini-soccer fields and its very own 2.5 acre Central Park.
