CI Financial Corp Leases Additional Space At OKO Group’s 55-Story 830 Brickell Office Tower

Canadian asset and wealth management firm CI Financial Corp has doubled the size of its planned office space at 830 Brickell, a 55-story Class A-plus office building under construction in the heart of Miami’s Brickell Financial District designed by renowned architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, with interiors by Italian architecture and design company Iosa Ghini Associati. Just months after signing a 20,000 square-foot lease that will house the firm’s U.S. headquarters, CI Financial has expanded with an additional floor. The new office will total approximately 40,000 square feet. The firm’s expansion further solidifies 830 Brickell as the address of choice for financial, professional services, and global firms looking to establish or grow their presence in South Florida. The 724-foot-tall tower, which is being developed by a joint venture between OKO Group and Cain International, is expected to top out soon and is slated for completion later this year with Civic Construction as the general contractor.
