International cuisine is coming to both retail spaces in the Icon Brickell condominium, according to Fabio Faerman of Fortune International Realty, who was charged to lease the spaces. One space was leased to a restaurant group that plans to open Mexican eatery La Cantina No. 20 in a three-floor space with outdoor terraces. Faerman leased the second, larger space in Tower I to restaurateurs who will bring high-end Italian restaurant Cipriani to Miami.
It already has locations in New York, Los Angeles and other international cities.
Faerman found tenants within two months of taking over the listing after it sat unleased for almost four years, according to Fortune. “We focused our search on a high end restaurant outside Florida and we repositioned Icon as a brand spot and the only space left on the water on the entire Brickell area,” Faerman said. — Adam Fusfeld
