(Bloomberg)—Related Cos., the developer behind Manhattan’s Hudson Yards project, is making its first foray into the Miami office market.
The real estate firm, led by billionaire chairman Stephen Ross, is working with Hong Kong-based Swire Properties to develop a supertall building in Brickell, a key commercial district in Miami, according to a person familiar with the matter.
Swire recently filed applications with the Federal Aviation Administration to get approval for the roughly 1,040-foot (317-meter) skyscraper, dubbed One Brickell City Centre.
Related declined to comment on the specifics of the project. A representative for Swire declined to comment.
Miami has seen a surge in office leasing since the pandemic started as companies increasingly target Florida for new offices. Ross said in a statement that New York-based Related plans to start work in 2023 on Florida’s “tallest and largest office tower” in Brickell, with the building looking to attract the “tech and financial companies flocking to Miami.”
