A wholesale meat distributor is herding on over to its new headquarters in Coral Gables.

Natural Premium Brands purchased a 1,163-square-foot suite at 2020 Ponce, a luxury office tower developed by Florida East Coast Realty. The company will lease a temporary space in the building while their suite is under construction, according to a release.

The distributor has operated in Miami for 39 years and ships meat products from its plants in Uruguay to North America and some areas in Europe, according to a press release.

Bill Planes of RE/MAX Advance represented Natural Premium Brands. Donna Abood and Joe Abood of Avison Young brokered the deal for the seller.

“We chose 2020 Ponce for our new Miami office because of the building’s prime location in Coral Gables and because it is a very attractive and well-constructed building,” said NPB President Richard Spradling in a statement. “We looked at several other office properties in the area and were most impressed with 2020 Ponce.”

Florida East Coast Realty has switched between selling and leasing space at 2020 Ponce de Leon Boulevard since opening their offices at the building in 2009. The company announced late last year that it would be selling its spaces again — with 50 percent financing for developers.

About 50,000 square feet of office space remain at the building. Suites range in size from 500 square feet to a 16,700-square-foot floor. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
