Miami Worldcenter

Restaurant Juvia, which recently closed in Miami Beach, will reopen at Miami Worldcenter.

Hospitality firm Juvia Group, led by Jonas and Alexandra Millán, leased 8,800 square feet of indoor space and 7,100 square feet of rooftop space on the 12th floor at 652 Northeast Second Avenue in downtown Miami, according to a Miami Worldcenter news release. The restaurant is expected to open by the end of next year. 

Juvia, which offers a blend of Asian and South American cuisines prepared with French techniques, closed its popular rooftop outpost at 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach on Aug. 22. The restaurant was at the Herzog & de Meuron-designed garage for 11 years. 

Juvia Group’s portfolio in South Florida includes Sunny Poké at 1784 West Avenue in Miami Beach, as well as Sushi Garage at 3015 Grand Avenue in Miami’s Coconut Grove, 500 East Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale and 1784 West Avenue in Miami Beach. 

The $6 billion Miami Worldcenter is a 27-acre mixed-use project that is being developed in phases. Miami Worldcenter Associates, led by Art Falcone and Nitin Motwani, in partnership with CIM Group are the master developers, though they have been selling buildable sites to other firms. 

Records show the building where Juvia will open is owned by an entity tied to Falcone and Motwani. The property’s existing retailers include Sephora, Lululemon and Ray-Ban

Restaurants already open at Miami Worldcenter include Ariete Hospitality Group CEO and Executive Chef Michael Beltran’s Brasserie Laurel, Chug’s Express and El Vecino Cigar & Cocktail Bar. 

Roughly 90 percent of Miami Worldcenter’s retail space is leased, the release says.

Doral Atrium

Tremble Pilates Studio leased at Terra’s recently completed Doral Atrium project. 

Tremble will open a 1,500-square-foot studio next year at the project on the northwest corner of Northwest 79th Avenue and Doral Boulevard, according to a Terra news release. 

Coconut Grove-based Terra, led by David Martin, completed Doral Atrium on 5.2 acres at 3900 Northwest 79th Avenue in Doral this month. 

Founded and led by Aryan Rashed, Tremble has seven other outposts in South Florida, including in Aventura, Coral Gables, Miami Beach, and Miami’s Coconut Grove and Brickell neighborhoods, according to the studio’s website. It also has one studio in each Nevada and Louisiana, and two studios in New York. 

The 78,000-square-foot Doral Atrium is 65 percent leased, the release says. PNC Bank, Korean double-fried chicken restaurant Bonchon, Sushi Mas, The Good Feet Store and the nail salon/cosmetics franchise brand Umara also have leased the project.

Museum Tower (Colliers)

Lightpath, a network connectivity infrastructure provider, opened an office in downtown Miami. 

The Bethpage, New York-based company leased 2,300 square feet at Museum Tower at 150 West Flagler Street, according to a Lightpath news release. 

Led by Chris Morley, Lightpath provides fiber-optic network connectivity options, including internet, Ethernet, private networks, secure digital connections and wavelengths up to 800Gbps, according to the release and the company’s website. 

The firm, which expanded to Miami last year, is using the downtown office for operations, customer service and sales staff members, the release says. 

Developer and investor Moishe Mana bought the 28-story Museum Tower for roughly $73.8 million in May. Mana, who has amassed the majority of the commercial properties along and near Flagler Street, is working on a project to repurpose the real estate and turn it into a tech campus, though Museum Tower and the adjacent 172 West Flagler Street building will cater to the legal industry.
