CREC has been selected as the exclusive leasing agent for Meridian Center, located at 1680 Meridian Avenue, steps from Lincoln Road in the heart of Miami Beach.
The iconic, 55,000-square-foot boutique building, recently underwent remodeling to exude an artistic flair synonymous with Miami. Street artists were commissioned to make each office floor lobby unique, personifying the city’s culture, while modernizing the space.
CREC Partner Steven Hurwitz, Senior Vice President Douglas Okun and Senior Leasing Associate Teri Jarp will oversee leasing, which includes targeting those in the creative industries and professional services companies. Current tenants include Apple and Keller Williams.
“We are thrilled to be spearheading the leasing efforts for this highly-sought office property, located just around the corner from Miami Beach’s premier outdoor retail and dining destination,” said Hurwitz. “Meridian Center’s proximity to the amenities of Lincoln Road and surrounding Miami Beach neighborhood, coupled with its creative ambiance, makes the building appeal to a wide range of tenants who appreciate design and location.”
Harry’s Pizzeria®, James Beard Award-winning Chef Michael Schwartz’s neighborhood American pizzeria, recently signed a retail lease to occupy the ground floor of Meridian Center.
Lyle Stern and Sara Wolfe of Koniver Stern Group represented the landlord in the transaction.
This new location will open in 2018, part of the chain’s expansion plans that include locations in Aventura and Sawgrass in Florida, Atlanta, Georgia, and Cleveland, Ohio, joining the three restaurants currently serving South Florida in Coconut Grove, Kendall’s Downtown Dadeland and the chef’s Miami Design District original.
Acquired in 2015, Meridian Center is in walking distance to more than 200 retail stores, cafes, and restaurants, and enjoys easy access to both I-395 (MacArthur Causeway) and I-195 (Julia Tuttle Causeway).
