Since a group of institutional investors advised by J.P. Morgan Asset Management – Global Real Assets acquired a 100 percent stake in Southeast Financial six years ago, more than $20.5 million has been spent on capital improvements.

“As one of Miami’s landmark buildings, we are constantly seeking new ways to enhance the tenant experience and continue to set benchmarks for Class A office space,” JLL vice president Jay Leone said. JLL exclusively handles leasing and management at Southeast Financial.
