As the Miami office market continues its strong recovery, The Gateway at Wynwood – the newest office building in the Wynwood area – has secured three new-to-market tenants totaling nearly 14,000 square feet.
Recently launched Spearmint Energy, a next-generation renewable energy company enabling the clean energy revolution through battery energy storage, signed a lease to occupy about 3,500 square feet. Victory Polymers Corps., a resource to the construction and renovation trade for spray polyurethane foam insulation products and technology, will occupy nearly 4,000 square feet of space in the building’s spec suites. Ripple, a San Francisco-based company, has signed a lease to occupy about 6,500 square feet.
The Gateway at Wynwood was represented by Colliers’ Executive Managing Director Stephen Rutchik, Managing Director Tom Farmer and Director Tyler de la Pena in the office lease transactions.
“We are proud that The Gateway at Wynwood has become the place-to-be for new-to-market tenants entering South Florida,” said Shelby Rosenberg, R&B Realty’s Head of Development and Acquisitions, US Portfolio. “Leasing activity has continued to ramp up in the first half of 2022, and we are looking forward to continuing to welcome tenants to the building.”
Founded by energy industry veteran Andrew Waranch, in partnership with Kevin Kelley, CEO of Roscommon Analytics LLC, Spearmint is comprised of experienced energy professionals who combine innovative, cutting-edge financial hedging solutions and insight to bring projects to market that reduce waste while increasing affordable, long-lasting, grid-scale renewable energy. The Spearmint platform is comprised of three distinct strategies, including battery and solar project development, energy storage offtake, and renewables power trading. The office will serve as Spearmint’s first office space and headquarters.
Victory Polymers, which is headquartered in Houston, Texas, supplies state-of-the-art formulations and backs them with unrivaled customer support. This will be Victory Polymers’ first office in South Florida.
San Francisco-based Ripple is a real-time gross settlement system, currency exchange and remittance network created by Ripple Labs Inc., a US-based technology company. With 15 offices in key technology and financial centers around the world, this will be the payment company’s first South Florida office.
The Gateway at Wynwood’s first office tenants began to move in January 2022. The LEED Gold Certified building has implemented practical and measurable strategies and solutions in areas including sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality. Green buildings allow companies to operate more sustainably and give the people inside them a healthier, more comfortable space to work.
The Gateway at Wynwood offers about 195,000 square feet of leasable Class A office space and nearly 25,900 square feet of prime street-level retail space. Designed by renowned architect Kobi Karp, the environmentally responsible building features flexible floorplans, a private rooftop terrace, gym, unique bay window system, 24/7 on-site security, vibrant exterior cladding, and 2:1,000 on-site covered parking.
