MIAMI, FL, March 31, 2017Cushman & Wakefield announced today that it has negotiated a ±7,000-square-foot office sublease with ED&F Man at 801 Brickell Avenue.

Managing Director Gordon Messinger represented Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) in the sublease negotiations. RBC has vacated over 65,000 square feet at 801 Brickell. The remaining 58,000 square feet comprises three full floors with panoramic views of Biscayne Bay within walking distance to all of Brickell’s world class restaurants, shops and hotels. RBC is offering 12 months of free rent to subtenants who execute leases through January 2024.

London-based ED&F Man was founded in 1783 and sources, stores and distributes agricultural commodities around the globe. The company will relocate 32 employees from its existing Sugar and Capital Markets office at 2525 Ponce de Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables to the new space on the 14th floor at 801 Brickell. Luciana Carvalho and Christopher Harak with Blanca Commercial Real Estate represented ED&F Man.

“ED&F Man is one of the most storied names in the history of the commodity markets,” said Messinger. “The company was looking for space that put them in the center of the Financial District, and 801 Brickell was the perfect fit.”

801 Brickell is a Class A, 28-story, 415,000-square-foot office tower developed in 1985.
