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.

PGIM Real Estate’s sale of 1111 Brickell Avenue in Miami to a partnership between Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. and Parkway Properties for $248.5 million in June ended months long speculation over who would buy the iconic Brickell property.

The tower was built with the adjacent JW Marriott Hotel in 2000. It was was renamed in 2010 when Spanish lender Banco Sabadell acquired Mellon United National Bank. Tenants include Telefonica USA, Hunton & Williams, Baker & McKenzie, Regus and Barclays.

Kendall Summit Office Park – Cofe Properties | $35M

Cofe Properties bought a six-building office park in Kendall for $34.75 million from TA Realty, the third-largest office sale last month.

The Miami-based commercial real estate firm paid about $200 per square foot for the 174,000-square-foot property known as the Kendall Summit Office Park at 11400 to 11440 North Kendall Drive. It secured a $26 million non-recourse loan from an unnamed lender to finance the purchase.

Cushman & Wakefield represented the seller, Boston-based TA Realty, and arranged the financing.

The sellers paid $19.75 million for the property in 2015. It was built in 1989.
