A freshly constructed Class A office complex in Wynwood will be occupied by a securities exchange company headquartered in Miami.
A recent office report from the brokerage Avison Young states that MIAX, commonly known as Miami International Securities Exchange, has closed on a 38,409-square-foot lease at 545 N.W. 26th St. at 545wyn.
MIAX is a global exchange for equities, equity options, and commodities.
An affiliate of Miami International Holdings, M7 Holdings, recently acquired the cryptocurrency derivatives platform LedgerX from a bankrupt FTX, founded by now convicted felon Sam Bankman-Fried, for $50 million.
Miami International Holdings also announced on October 17 that it plans to introduce MIAX Sapphire, a fourth options exchange platform headquartered in Miami. Miami International Holdings claimed in a release that MIAX Sapphire is anticipated to launch in the second quarter of 2024, “followed by the opening of a physical trading floor in Miami, Florida in the second half of 2024,” pending permission by the Federal Securities and Exchange Commission. It was not disclosed where that trade floor was located.
