Florida International University has signed a lease for three additional floors at 1101 Brickell Avenue. The new deal will double the school’s space at the downtown Miami office tower, which is owned and managed by Florida East Coast Realty. FIU will occupy a total of 60,373 square feet between 1101 Brickell’s north and south towers. The new space will house two classrooms and new reception space. “The building’s prime position on Brickell Avenue provides many professionals working in the area with a convenient location to further their education,” said Tibor Hollo, chairman and president of FECR. 1101 Brickell recently completed a $26 million renovation. – Alexander Britell
