Sidley Austin LLP, an international law firm with almost $3 billion in revenue and 20 offices worldwide, has confirmed that it is opening its 21st office in Miami. Sidley will join the growing roster of world-leading professional services firms and other companies at 830 Brickell, the new 55-story Class-A+ office tower nearing completion in Miami’s Brickell Financial District. Sidley signed a three-floor, 60,000 square-foot lease at the 55-story tower, marking the largest new-to-market office lease signed in the city’s urban core this year. The building, developed in partnership by OKO Group and Cain International, is the first stand-alone Class A+ office tower to be built in Miami’s Brickell Financial District in over a decade and is nearly 70 percent leased ahead of its late-2022 completion.

Sidley will join additional top-tier office users at 830 Brickell, including Microsoft, New York-based insurance firm A-CAP, private equity firm Thoma Bravo, CI Financial, Marsh Insurance, AerCap, WeWork, and others.

“We are excited to be at the center of this new growth of the Miami business community as we open our 21st office in such a vibrant, international market,” said Yvette Ostolaza, Sidley’s Chair of the Management Committee. “As a Miami native, I know this community well and am excited about the talented lawyers who we have already recruited to serve our M&A, private equity, financial services, tech, cybersecurity and privacy, healthcare, real estate, entertainment, sports, and media, SEC regulatory and enforcement, and global finance clients. We are excited about our new office space.”

At nearly 70% leased, 830 Brickell continues to serve as a magnate for professional service, tech and financial firms growing their presence in Miami, said Vlad Doronin, Chairman and CEO of OKO Group, and Jonathan Goldstein, CEO of Cain International. Brickell has acted as a bellwether in the South Florida office market, and we anticipate increased demand in 830 as Miami grows into a global hub for talent, lifestyle and innovation.

The news comes as the Miami office market continues to boast one of the lowest vacancy rates with absorption faring better than other competing markets across the U.S, according to the Miami Downtown Development Authority’s 2021 Office Market Report. In fact, Downtown Miami was the only major urban office market in the country to achieve net-positive absorption in 2021.

830 Brickell’s ownership was represented by Cushman & Wakefield’s Brian Gale, Ryan Holtzman and Andrew Trench. Sidley was represented by Jeff Gordon and Barbara Black of JLL.

The tower’s amenities will include a rooftop bar/lounge and restaurant with menus developed alongside a three-Michelin-starred chef showcasing expansive views of the City and Biscayne Bay, a world-class health and wellness center, conferencing facilities, an outdoor terrace, cafe’s and street-level retail. Multiple transit options are nearby, including Metrorail and Metromover, the Brightline, walking paths, cycling lanes and bay access points. Additionally, some of Miami’s top residential and lifestyle-driven neighborhoods are situated just minutes away, such as Miami’s Design District, Wynwood, Edgewater and Miami Beach.

“830 Brickell continues to attract tenants at the top of the food chain and across diversified industries like financial services, tech, insurance, banking and now, top-tier law firms,” said Brian Gale, Vice Chairman of Cushman & Wakefield. “The surge in new-to-market activity we’ve been experiencing over the last couple years is by far the most we’ve seen in Miami, with over 500,000 square feet of active tenants currently looking for space in the market. The cities that have generated the most activity for South Florida’s office market have come from New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.”

  1. Looks ugly. Especially the base. Boring.
