South Florida’s biggest office sales in June

South Florida’s office market is cooling down after years of strong demand and low vacancy rates, but that doesn’t mean major deals have come to a halt.

1111 Brickell Avenue, also known as the Sabadell Financial Center, sold in June for $248.5 million, marking the priciest office sale of the month and year.

Two other office buildings sold for more than $20 million outside the city of Miami, and another two sold in Boca Raton’s Park at Broken Sound last month. Increasingly, tenants in South Florida, especially in Miami, are seeking Class A office space, driving down the demand for Class B offices, according to a recent report.
