Lotus House, a nonprofit shelter in Miami’s historic Overtown district, is growing its suite of supportive services with the creation of a “Children’s Village” designed by Behar Font & Partners that will feature deeper educational supports and programming for children and youth of all ages, community support facilities, therapeutic and social services, and a long awaited playground. The Children’s Village will also serve as home to other community-based nonprofits, offering an array of resources and programming for children and youth and their families in Overtown and surrounding neighborhoods.
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.

Being developed by 700 Edgewater Development LLC, a partnership between OKO Group LLC, Cain International and OB Group, the development is expected to yield 832,192 square feet of space and 249 units.
