100,000 SQUARE FEET LEASED AT WATERFORD AT BLUE LAGOON PROPERTIES

image001We have seen strong leasing activity at the eight buildings we lease and manage at the Waterford at Blue Lagoon office park.  T&M has executed 37 deals totaling 100,000 square feet in the last year with over a third of that number – 38,500 square feet in the past few months.  The portfolio includes the 6505, 6303, 6100, 6161, 6101, 5805, 5775 and 5757 buildings located across from Miami International Airport in the 250 acre office park.  Jeannette Pay Mendoza our Director of Leasing negotiated the deals on behalf of the buildings’ owners.

Notable recent leasing activity includes

o   The 24,000 square foot renewal and expansion of Oracle USA at 6505 Waterford.  Co-brokered by John Marshall of Cresa South Florida

o   A 6,514 square foot lease with Caron Broadcasting, Inc at 5757 Waterford.  Co-brokered by Ryan Ackerman and Brian Wood of CBRE

o   A 4,425 square foot lease with Colombina Candy Company at 6303 Waterford.  Co-brokered by Gonzalo Rioja of Stone Miller

Mendoza attributes their success at leasing the portfolio to Taylor & Mathis’ award winning management and the stellar location across from Miami International Airport.  “The buildings attract companies for whom the access to the airport and interstate system are paramount,” said Mendoza. “We see a lot of interest from international companies.”

2015 will bring a unique leasing opportunity to 6101 Waterford when the entire 88,000 square foot building becomes available for lease.  Miami Children’s Hospital will vacate their space in the first quarter and Taylor & Mathis has the ability to relocate the building’s remaining tenants to free up the entire building for the right tenant.  The four-story building can provide a tenant with signage along S.R. 836 which has a daily traffic count of 180,000+.

The buildings are managed with a strong commitment toward corporate responsibility. The buildings house hundreds of jobs for diverse tenants such as Parbel of Florida (L’Oreal), The Discovery Channel, Regus, Biomet, Avisena, Phoenix American Insurance Group, Oracle, Humana, RAC Insurance, FirstService Residential Florida, Butler Buckley & Deets.

Community impact from the properties has been significant.  Property Manager Peter Romero has created and organized the largest corporate event at Waterford and in the Blue Lagoon area. The Waterford 5k at Blue Lagoon was first organized in 2007 and has since grown into one of the most anticipated 5K events in the Miami-Dade area. The race includes over 2500 participants, over 60 corporate sponsors, and has contributed over $133,000 to charities including Miami Children’s Hospital.

IT’S ON TO INTERNATIONALS FOR 6100 & 6303 WATERFORD

l;lWaterford Properties Win Regional BOMA Award!

6100 & 6303 Waterford were named Suburban Office Park – Low Rise Buildings of the Year the at last week’s Southern Regional TOBY Awards by the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA).  The matching 4-story office buildings won the local Miami-Dade chapter award earlier this year and will compete for the international award this June in Orlando. Taylor & Mathis leases and manages the buildings on behalf of owner MetLife.

“The level of dedication Senior Property Manager Peter Romero and our management team put into the properties is well-reflected by this award. They are an amazing group of people.  It is so rewarding to see their professionalism and excellence recognized by their industry peers throughout the Southern region. Having a strong and committed owner such as MetLife enables our team to manage and operate the properties at the highest level. ” – Marlene Diaz, Taylor & Mathis Director of Operations.

The TOBY Awards are the most prestigious and comprehensive programs of their kind in the commercial real estate industry recognizing quality in office buildings and rewarding excellence in office building management. During the competition, all facets of a building’s operations are thoroughly evaluated. Buildings are judged on everything from community involvement and site management to environmental and “green” policies and procedures.

6100 & 6303 Waterford, located in Miami’s Waterford at Blue Lagoon office park, a 250-acre master planned business park minutes from Miami International Airport, are managed with a strong commitment toward corporate responsibility. From an economic standpoint, the two office buildings contribute $900,000 to local government in taxes alone. $383,894 is attributed to 6100 Waterford, while 6303 Waterford contributed $367,899 in 2012. The buildings house hundreds of jobs for diverse tenants such as Parbel of Florida (L’Oreal), Office Suites PLUS, Biomet, Avisena, Phoenix American Insurance Group, Johnson & Johnson, CSA Group, The Yachts of Seabourn, and The Art of Shaving. Additional jobs are generated through contractors, sub-contractors, and vendor relationships.

Community impact from the properties has been significant.  Property Manager Peter Romero has created and organized the largest corporate event at Waterford and in the Blue Lagoon area. The Waterford 5k at Blue Lagoon was first organized in 2007 benefitting Autism Speaks; it has since grown into one of the most anticipated 5K events in the Miami-Dade area and is now known as the FedEx Waterford 5k at Blue Lagoon. The race includes over 2500 participants, over 60 corporate sponsors, and has contributed over $133,000 to charities including Miami Children’s Hospital.

Reducing environmental impact was a factor in securing the BOMA awards.  A 2013 report from Waste Management highlighted the direct impact made on the environment by incorporating a Single Stream Recycling Program at the T&M managed Waterford properties. The compelling results: 42% of total waste was diverted, creating a savings of: 95,197 kw-hours of electricity (enough to power 8 homes for a full year) ; 1,954 gallons of oil (enough energy to heat and cool 10 homes for a full year); 463 gallons of gasoline (enough gasoline to drive 12,973 miles); 393 mature trees (enough to produce 4,872,784 sheets of newspaper); 135,135 gallons of water (enough to meet the fresh water needs of 7,211 people for a month) and 76 cubic yards of landfill airspace (enough airspace to meet the disposal needs of a community of 1,169 people).
