Uber has signed a lease for a new workspace in South Florida. The ridesharing company will take over 13,000 square feet of office space at 3 MiamiCentral in Downtown Miami.
According to Josh Bank, managing director of CBRE in Miami, this move is a big deal for the market and the technology industry.
Recently, CBRE’s 2021 tech talent report ranked South Florida number one in the country for its diverse tech-degree graduate rate.
“The more capital coming into the region, the more business will be able to hire and schools will be able to enroll. It’s all a good thing,” said Bank. “Our office leasing professionals have reported they’ve never seen so many new-to-market companies looking for space within Miami than right now.”
Bank added that he anticipates that South Florida will continue to see more growth in the office market, particularly within the financial, hospitality and tech sectors.
“In the market, we are witnessing a tipping point as the growing technology sector matures into a true global tech hub,” said Bank. “This makes a vibrant ecosystem in which accessing talent is such a critical component.”
