Aventura Optima Plaza Welcomes First Tenants

Oct 31, 2013 No Comments by

Colliers International South Florida announced that Aventura Optima Plaza, a 114,000-square-foot Class A office and medical complex located at 21500 Biscayne Boulevard, Aventura, has been granted a temporary certificate of occupancy and is welcoming its first tenants.

Colliers International South Florida’s Executive Vice President Randy Olen, exclusively represents the Aventura Optima complex, which is on track to be only the second high-rise office building in Florida to be certified LEED Platinum, and the first in Aventura. “The internationally-recognized distinction of excellence in sustainability is a plus for the building’s owners, and for those who will occupy it,” said Olen.

The new project’s first tenants are a mix of local and international firms including KAWA Capital Management, Inc. which recently signed a seven-year lease for the entire seventh floor (11,400 square feet). The tenant was represented by Steven Hurwitz of CREC. KAWA Capital Management will join The Bloom Organization, already an occupant, along with Morales Law Group, Nexsys International, L.C. and Dolce Living Investments, LLC. These tenants signed leases earlier this year and are expected to move in during the next several months. Olen expects to finalize lease agreements with three additional prospective tenants for a total of approximately 20,000 square feet during the fourth quarter.

Aventura Optima Plaza consists of a nine-story east tower fronting Biscayne Boulevard, a four-story west building, and a 457-space parking structure that links the two with a 20,000-square foot landscaped jogging trail on the roof.

Developers Jose Bromberg and Ariel Bromberg of Inmobiliaria Brom have built multiple upscale buildings in their native Mexico. Arquitectos Brom Asociados designed the $35 million Aventura Optima Plaza project in association with Behar Font Partners of Coral Gables. The project features a sophisticated, eco-friendly design with access from Biscayne Boulevard and convenient drop-off areas at both the east and west building entrances.

“We decided to come to South Florida, and bring our investors to Florida, to start developing cutting-edge buildings, where quality would be a main issue,” Ariel Bromberg said in an interview. “We think building sustainable projects is the only way to go, not just because we are environmentally conscious, but because we believe corporations are looking for that.”

The building is the first in South Florida to have a double skin façade, with special hurricane proof glazing. The southern side of the building will feature solar panels that are decorative and produce 48KV of electricity daily. A 20,000-square foot landscaped “green roof” will top the garage building, with a jogging trail, exercise rooms, juice bar and restrooms. A terrace on the fifth level of the garage structure connects the two buildings and features fountains and reclaimed wood decks with landscaped seating areas.

“Prospective tenants are impressed with the project’s environmentally conscious design, the quality of construction and overall amenities available at Aventura Optima Plaza,” said Olen.
