UPDATED Aug. 1, 2:30 p.m.: Babson College inks lease at 1200 Brickell

Massachusetts-based Babson College is expanding to Brickell.

The college, which specializes in entrepreneurship education, inked a five-year, 5,500-square-foot lease at 1200 Brickell Avenue and is filling up half of its third floor.

Marcello Agostini of AG Real Estate Advisors represented the landlord, SGJ 1200, LLC. Records show the Miami-based company is led by Jorge Cury and Jose Roberto Neto. Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant.

Agostini said Babson College is in the midst of moving in and plans to open by the upcoming fall school year. The 20-story office building, which is anchored by BB&T, has about 375 office condo units and is about 85 percent occupied, according to Agostini. He said the building’s rents are in the mid-to-high $30s per square foot.

The office tower was built in 1982 and was converted to office condos in 2008.

Babson College has been ranked No. 1 for entrepreneurship education by the U.S. News and World Report for more than 25 years. Last year, it was reportedly moving into the Cambridge Innovation Center at 1951 Northwest Seventh Avenue, according to the Miami Herald. In the U.S., the school has existing hubs in Wellesley, Boston and San Francisco.
