There is 436,514 square feet under construction in the city with internationally known Aventura Mall and high-end condominium towers.
All will be Class A offices in a city where most of the existing inventory, nearly 799,000 square feet of a total of 1.13 million square feet, already is Class A, according to JLL data.
Aventura’s office market is focusing on high-end corporate towers like Inmobiliaria’s Optima complex and a medical district with offices for physicians and other health care and wellness providers.
Construction of the 12-story, 96,000-square-foot Forum Aventura at 19790 W. Dixie Highway just outside city limits wrapped up last year. The Optima complex at 21500 Biscayne Blvd. is to get its biggest building later this year when the 28-story, 300,000-square-foot Optima Onyx opens in Hallandale Beach, Broward County’s southernmost city bordering Aventura. On the Aventura side, the nine-story, 84,401-square-foot Optima White and four-story, 29,621-square-foot Optima Red were completed in 2013.
The budding medical district is growing following expansion of Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, which upgraded and added 22 rooms in a $75.6 million emergency room buildout. It then embarked on a 513-space garage and a three-story, 60-bed patient tower bringing the total number of hospital beds to nearly 500. The hospital owned by publicly traded HCA Healthcare Inc. three years ago obtained a Level Two trauma designation, one of two in Miami-Dade County.
North of the hospital, the 12-story Aventura Medical Tower was completed last year by The Faith Development Group, bringing 105,000 square feet of medical office condos. The tower at 2801 NE 213th St. is comprised of a seven-story, 472-space garage under five stories of offices.
On its heels to the east will be the medical office project Ivory 214 and 12 I 12 Aventura, 10-story buildings to be connected by a pedestrian bridge over 28th Court west of Biscayne Boulevard.
