Building owner Zerep Investment Group, based in Miami, has been making investments in the property that include a new HVAC System in Tower I as well as the exterior areas including the parking lot and landscaping.

“These leases come as the Miami Submarket adjusts to the pandemic’s effect and sees considerable movement in tenants giving up square footage as they continue to juggle remote work and giving up expensive office space in exchange for smaller footprints. The investments that building owners Zerep Investment Group have made increased the value of this asset and the variety of floor plates with no-wait time for occupancy coupled with a very competitive lease rate have increased its desirability as a business address in the Miami Airport Submarket”, said Morris Southeast Group’s President Ken Morris.
