The top 15 office tenants in Miami-Dade occupy more than 5 million square feet, led by county and government offices, which take up about a quarter of the total space, according to The Real Deal‘s analysis of CoStar Group data.

Major Miami-based corporations, like Terremark Worldwide, Carnival Cruise Lines, Assurant Solutions, Royal Caribbean Cruises, as well as FPL FiberNet encompass another 2 million-plus square feet, followed by the area’s largest educational institutions: the University of Miami and Florida International University, CoStar data shows.

The next tier includes corporations, financial institutions and a shared office space provider: Ryder System, Bank of America, Burger King, Regus, NCL Corp. and Visa.

The mix of 15 reads like a snapshot of the county’s office giants. In all, it includes three cruise companies; two of each of government entities, universities, financial giants and corporations; and one of each of utilities, information technology companies, insurance firms and office space providers.
