Bisnow conducted an analysis of how it has changed the South Florida real estate market since 2010, when they were in the midst of the Great Recession. The Newmark Knight Frank research team rounded up the 5 top office sales and leases of the decade.

Looking at the data, Newmark Knight Frank Chief Executive Officer Steve Medwin said that with population and tourism growth in Miami and South Florida, every time a large office building comes on the market, "it attracts a lot of attention because it is an opportunity for large institutions to put a lot of money to work and bet in Miami».

You don't see it very often." The most expensive deal of the decade was the 2016 sale of the Southeast Financial Center, a downtown tower that houses many law firms, to an entity controlled by Spanish billionaire Amancio Ortega, founder of Zara clothing stores. .

"A building like Southeast Financial, it's 1.1M SF," Medwin said. "I think it's the largest office building south of Atlanta. When it comes out on the market, people bid on it and pay a lot for it. So you'll see prices go up a lot per square foot over the last 10 years." In general, the main agreements highlight the institutionalization of the market, Medwin said. “It is the group of buyers who have capital looking to place it, and when they have the opportunity to put $100M, $200M, $500M, this is a great option for them,” he said.

"So we've seen the biggest sales, but they don't trade very often. It's not like a condo, where it's bought and sold every two years, typically five to ten years when it's sold. So [these] won't be back on the market for a while."
