MIAMI, FL

Change Capital, Inc. Signs 14,000 SF Office Lease at Brickell World Plaza

Jones Lang LaSalle represents Class A Miami tower in new lease transaction


MIAMI, June 18, 2013 – In a transaction that will result in net-positive absorption for the Miami office market, international investment firm Change Capital, Inc. will locate its corporate headquarters to 14,172 square feet of Class A office space at Foram Group’s 600 Brickell at Brickell World Plaza. Financial terms of the lease were not disclosed.

Change Capital’s lease cements Brickell World Plaza’s position as the preferred building for companies seeking to enter the South Florida market and expand their presence here with a location directly on Brickell Avenue. The building’s tenants include banking giant Northern Trust, law firm Hogan Lovells, Crédit Agricole Private Banking Miami, Boston Consulting Group, New York-based commercial and construction mortgage lender Doral Money Inc., and global mediation and arbitration service provider JAMS.

Jones Lang LaSalle Executive Vice President Glenn H. Gregory and Senior Vice President Noël Steinfeld represented 600 Brickell’s developer, Foram Group, in the transaction. Jones Lang LaSalle Vice President Scott Sheron represented Change Capital, Inc.

“With this move, Change Capital becomes the latest investment company to locate its headquarters in Miami’s Brickell Financial District, which is fast-emerging as the Wall Street of the Americas,” said Jones Lang LaSalle’s Steinfeld. “600 Brickell is the address of choice for corporate office users in South Florida and around the world seeking a Miami building with a central location, pedestrian-friendly setting, and leading-edge technology and sustainability features.”

“After an exhaustive search, 600 Brickell is the building most suited for their needs,” said Sheron.  “The building’s superior technology and quality tenant mix was extremely attractive.”

Beyond being the only major office building in Miami offering tenants a direct connection to the NAP (Network Access Point) of the Americas, 600 Brickell is the first major Class A office building in the world to be ISO 27001 Certified, which is the international benchmark for information security.

The building is one of a select few office buildings in the world to earn LEED Platinum pre-certification from the US Green Building Council and has emerged as a central gathering place in Miami’s urban core, with a 30,000-square-foot landscaped plaza welcoming visitors at street level. On-site amenities include but not limited to a private fitness center, conference center and tele-conference facilities, and a valet dry cleaner service.

Available office spaces range in size from 3,500 square feet to 25,000 square feet. Average rental rates range from $44.00 to $48.00 per square foot.
