In Miami, construction of OKO Group and Cain International’s 830 Brickell office tower is nearing completion. The building’s general contractor, Civic Construction, recently topped off construction at 55 stories. When complete later this year, the 724-foot-tall tower will be the first standalone office tower developed in Miami’s urban core in more than a decade, according to a statement from the developers.

Located in Miami’s Brickell Financial District, 830 Brickell was designed by architecture firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, with interiors by Italian architecture and design company Iosa Ghini Associati. Over 60% leased, 830 Brickell has attracted tenants such as Microsoft, Thoma Bravo, A-CAP, CI Financial, Marsh Insurance, AerCap, and WeWork. 

The tower’s hotel-style amenities include a rooftop bar/lounge and restaurant that offer views of the City and Biscayne Bay, a health and wellness center, an outdoor terrace, cafés, street-level retail, and conferencing facilities. Together with the developers, the building’s designers have incorporated pandemic-informed features such as ultraviolet lighting in air filtration systems, touchless technologies, and ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) sanitation. 

830 Brickell’s exterior has over 1 million square feet of uninterrupted glass. Serving as the tower’s podium, an eight-story parking garage is wrapped in a kinetic wall: a sprawling sheet of aluminum squares that move in the wind, reflecting the neighborhood’s movement and light. Nearby transit options include Metrorail and Metromover, the Brightline, walking paths, cycling lanes, and bay access points.

Developer: OKO Group and Cain International
