Kobi Karp’s 12-story The Gateway at Wynwood – one of the latest new boutique office buildings to complete in Miami’s Wynwood area – has landed three new-to-market tenants occupying nearly 14,000 square feet in total. New York-based R & B Realty Group, led by CEO Aron Rosenberg, developed the 195,000-square-foot Class-A office project along with Plaza Construction as the general contractor, and opened up for occupancy earlier this year. The Gateway at Wynwood is located at 2916 North Miami Avenue, tucked on the northwest corner of the intersection with Northwest 29th Street. Colliers’ Executive Managing Director Stephen Rutchik, Managing Director Tom Farmer and Director Tyler de la Pena represented the development in the office lease transactions.
Spearmint Energy, a recently launched next-generation renewable energy company enabling the clean energy revolution through battery energy storage, signed a lease to occupy approximately 3,500 square feet. Victory Polymers Corps., a resource to the construction and renovation trade for Spray Polyurethane Foam insulation products and technology, will occupy nearly 4,000 square feet of space in the building’s spec suites. Ripple, a San Francisco-based blockchain and cryptocurrency company, has signed a lease to occupy about 6,500 square feet.
Tenants enjoy an environmentally responsible building featuring flexible floor plans, a private rooftop terrace, gym, unique bay window system, 24/7 on-site security, vibrant exterior cladding, and 2:1,000 on-site covered parking. The building recently announced OpenStore’s office expansion, as well as leases with Baseline, DALIYAH and MIZU Rooftop Garden. The ground floor level contains nearly 25,900 square feet of prime street-level retail space.
