Gordon Messinger and Ericka Witkowski were Selected to Lease Miami-Dade County’s Most Visible Corporate Headquarters Building
MIAMI, December 15, 2017 — Cushman & Wakefield announced today that Managing Director Gordon Messinger and Director Ericka Witkowski have been named exclusive leasing advisors for 5505 Waterford at Blue Lagoon, a ±213,000-square-foot Class A office building centrally located in Miami-Dade County.
5505 Waterford at Blue Lagoon was developed in 2002 on a ±9.7-acre site at 5505 Blue Lagoon Drive in Miami’s premier corporate office park, Waterford at Blue Lagoon. The building features prominent, top-of-building signage fronting the Dolphin Expressway (SR 836) and Miami International Airport; an on-site, state-of-the-art fitness center; a four-story parking deck; efficient floor plates with 360-degree views of Miami; the best ingress and egress in Waterford at Blue Lagoon; and immediate access to the park’s extensive amenity package, including restaurants, hotels, 24-hour security and day care.
5505 Waterford at Blue Lagoon currently houses Burger King’s corporate headquarters, however, the entire building will be available for lease when Burger King relocates to a nearby built-to-suit facility in 2018. Availabilities will range from 50,000 to 200,000 square feet.
According to Messinger, Burger King’s relocation will create a tremendous opportunity for users looking to occupy a large swathe of space in one of the region’s most desirable corporate locations.
“I anticipate significant interest from both local and new-to-market tenants. Space of this size and quality does not come to market very often,” said Messinger. “This is a unique branding opportunity for large corporate users to secure space in, arguably, the premier business park with the best exposure in the southeastern U.S.”
“Potential tenants will also be attracted to the building’s central location,” added Messinger. “5505 Waterford at Blue Lagoon’s location near major transportation routes like the Palmetto Expressway, the Dolphin Expressway, Interstate 95, and Florida’s Turnpike provides convenient access for the burgeoning employment base in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
