New downtown Miami office building lands two major tenants
The Two MiamiCentral office building under construction in downtown Miami signed leases with Cisneros and Moss & Associates to push pre-leasing to 60 percent.
Cisneros, a media, entertainment and real estate firm, will occupy 30,000 square feet on the top two floors of the office building after relocating from Coral Gables. The 10-story building will total 190,000 square feet and should be completed in 2017 and will be connected to developer Florida East Coast Industries’ Brightline passenger train.
“MiamiCentral and Brightline represent a major step forward for South Florida,” said Adriana Cisneros, CEO and vice chairman of Cisneros. “This facility is committed to innovation, entrepreneurship and social leadership, and we look forward to being able to provide our employees with a range of amenities and transportation options located right in MiamiCentral.”
Fort Lauderdale-based Moss & Associates, which has many construction projects in Miami, will lease 4,000 square feet on the seventh floor of Two MiamiCentral.
“Downtown Miami is experiencing a development boom, including a number of projects that we are directly involved in,” said Bob Moss, chairman and CEO of Moss & Associates. “We felt strongly that we should have a presence in the center of that development and that is Two MiamiCentral.”
FECI and broker Blanca Commercial Real Estate previously announced leases at the project with Ernst & Young for 23,000 square feet, Regus for 20,000 square feet and FECI’s headquarters for 20,000 square feet.

In addition to the passenger train linking Miami with Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando, MiamiCentral will include residential and retail buildings. Miami-based H3 Hospitality, headed by Justin Schultz and Seth Gadinsky, was recently named leasing agent for the 180,000 square feet of retail. The developer recently announced that a 50,000-square-foot artisanal marketplace with six restaurants and 20 kiosks would be located at the station pedestal along Northwest 1st Avenue.
