Leases Bring New Activity to Miami Lakes Submarket

Miami, FL – August 24, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — CBRE arranged two leases totaling more than 58,000 square feet at the newly renovated Miami Lakes Business Center located at 5875 NW 163rd Street in Miami. Building owner Keystone Property Group, based in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, invested more than $5 million in a complete renovation of the property that included new high impact windows, a back-up generator with the capacity to power the entire building for tenant operations, new chillers and other building systems as well as the exterior areas including the parking lot and landscaping.

Dade Medical College, a four-campus educational institution offering Associate of Science degrees in programs such as nursing, radiology, diagnostic cardiac sonography, medical billing and coding leased 39,971 square feet. This lease represents an expansion for the college. This site offered a geographic stronghold in Northern Dade and Southern Broward counties. The tenant was represented by Irving Diaz of Irving Diaz & Associates.

Advanced Data Processing leased 18,122 square feet and expects to relocate in first quarter 2012. ADP was represented by Steve Gaunt of CRESA Partners.
