Capital management firm StoicLane, based in Chicago, signed a lease for 2,808 square feet. The private holding company focuses on finance, insurance and real estate businesses, according to the release.

Investment firm Selvatra, owned by Colombian company Colpatria, and independent investment bank Cassel Salpeter each renewed their leases.

Selvatra invests alongside family offices and private equity funds in U.S., Canadian and European operating companies, according to the release. Cassel Salpeter works with middle-market and emerging companies across industries.

Nuveen, led by CEO Jose Minaya, has $152 billion of assets under management, the release says.

The leases speak to Brickell’s growth as a mecca for financial firms, a trajectory that was accelerated shortly after the pandemic started.

This year, Vibrant Capital Partners opened its first office outside its New York City headquarters in a 3,000-square-foot space at 1200 Brickell Avenue, with plans to expand to the penthouse next year.

This came on the heels of Canadian asset manager CI Financial doubling its space in January to 40,000 square feet at the 830 Brickell tower under construction, after it originally took out 20,000 square feet in September.

Charlotte, North Carolina-based LMC is developing the 11-story Artem with 189 units. The property will offer studios, as well as one- and two-bedroom apartments, and 324 parking spots, the release says.

Gensler designed Studio Three’s interior, and local artists have been commissioned to create murals.

It will mark Studio Three’s fifth location, adding to three in the River North, Lincoln Park and Fulton Market neighborhoods in Chicago and a fourth expected to open in the fall in Austin, according to the release.
