HBO Latin America signed for 66,203 square feet at 396 Alhambra Circle in downtown Coral Gables, World Property Channel reported. The lease accounts for nearly one-quarter of the new, 273,000-square-foot, two-building office property.

The office building is composed of a circa-1960s, seven-story office tower that was completely renovated to achieve LEED-certified silver status by developer Eddie Avila, and a brand-new 15-story, LEED-certified gold tower to the north.

HBO will take three floors in the North Tower and two floors in the South Tower beginning in the third quarter of this year. Other tenants in the structure include Citibank, Terra Networks and the law offices of Richman Greer.

“This is our biggest announcement so far, and more news is on the way as construction nears completion,” said Avila, principal of 396 Alhambra LLC. “We will soon have 50 percent of the office space leased, and HBO Latin America’s signing establishes 396 Alhambra as a premier destination address for multinational corporations, professional service firms and entrepreneurs in Coral Gables.
