BlackRock Renews Lease at Brickell Office Tower


BlackRock has renewed its 5,103-square-foot lease at 701 Brickell in Miami’s Financial District, according to the brokerage that represented the landlord, Nuveen Real Estate.

BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, opened its Miami office in 2018 on the 12th floor of the 33-story building, providing space for roughly 40 employees. Last August, it leased a second South Florida office in West Palm Beach to accommodate employees who had migrated there during the pandemic.

BlackRock will be in the company of a number of other financial companies in 701 Brickell, including Apollo Global Management, which signed a 10-year lease in 2021, and the Zurich-based EFG Capital, which recently renewed a 32,408-square-foot lease, as well as professional services company Aon, which relocated to the building last year.

In all, Nuveen signed nine leases spanning 71,292 square feet at the property last year, maintaining its 95 percent occupancy rate, according to the company.
