The Coconut Grove office building that houses Miami Today’s headquarters is officially up for grabs at $20 million.

Located at 2000 South Dixie Highway, the building is fully occupied, including a handful of notable tenants like Miami Today, one of the city’s longest-running business publications, and Tinsley Advertising, a storied ad agency that’s worked with brands like Airbus and Paramount Pictures.

The building is owned by a limited liability company named after its address. State corporate records show the entity’s registered agent is Jose Pita, head of a company called Sunrise Grove Management that manages properties for investors.

After purchasing the property, built in 1972, for $4.925 million in 2010, the current owners started a major renovation program. New impact-resistant windows were installed, the interiors were modernized, and the building’s two-story atrium was redone.

At 53,074 square feet, the building’s asking price breaks down to just under $377 per square foot.

Listing agent Scott Sime of Sime Realty told The Real Deal that the owners sensed it was a good time to sell now that the office market has matured.

The current tenants are paying roughly $28 per square foot, triple-net, according to data from the CoStar Group. And Sime said as those leases expire, a new owner could potentially bring those rents higher. A second-quarter report from commercial brokerage CBRE shows asking rents in the neighborhood now hover at about $34 per square foot for Class A space, and $31.64 for Class B space.

As for whether developers could be potential buyers because of the property’s 90,000 square feet of land, Sime said “That is certainly a possibility. But this property functions very well in its current state as an income producing property.”
