A recent JLL report has revealed that Miami’s office market has become increasingly reliant on coworking operators to fill spaces. With the amount of major operators that continue pouring into the area, it should have no problem.
Regus recently leased out 35,800 square feet on 801 Brickell Avenue, expanding its existing footprint of 48,913 square feet.
Spaces, a subsidiary of Regus, will take up 23,700 square feet at Two MiamiCentral in downtown Miami.
WeWork also recently signed a lease on 830 Brickell Avenue, taking up 146,000 square feet in the 80-story building where it will account for 27% of the tower.
Sean Dayton, Regus’ vice president of sales, said that landlords themselves are considering starting their own coworking spaces that could be used by virtually ever tenant in their buildings.
While coworking growth in the city seems steady, other landlords are worried that the absorption rate of operators has gotten to be too much.
“Landlords like having some of their spaces taken by coworking tenants,” said Hernan Rodriguez, a senior managing director with HFF. “They like it to be between 15% to 30%. Once you start going over those numbers, then landlords become concerned about who is running the show: the landlord or the coworking tenant?”
