Hermès Nearly Doubles Miami Office


Luxury fashion house Hermès is relocating and expanding its corporate presence within Miami’s Coral Gables.

The French company inked a 4,623-square-foot lease at 150 Alhambra Circle, according to Blanca Commercial Real Estate, the brokerage that represented the landlord. The office, which will house the firm’s beauty division, is slated to open by the third quarter of 2023.

The new lease marks a 1,723-square-foot expansion for Hermès, which first opened a Miami office in 2016 at the nearby 2020 Ponce office building, per The Real Deal

Besides its office, Hermès — best known for its Birkin bag, which can cost tens of thousands of dollars — has a flagship store in the Design District, and a new boutique at the Aventura Mall, which opened last October.

150 Alhambra, a 13-story office building adjacent to Ponce de Leon Boulevard, is 82 percent leased. Other tenants include First Horizon Bank, IMG Worldwide and Caracol Television. Just last month, Regal Rexnord, a publicly traded electric motor manufacturer, took 1,317 square feet.

The current asking rent in the building stands between $42 and $45 per square foot.

Blanca Commercial Real Estate’s Juan Ruiz, Jack Davidson, and Tere Blanca represented the landlord, MDR. Joe Abood of Avison Young, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment, represented Hermès.
