Tricera Capital, the Miami-based commercial real estate firm led by Ben Mandell, and LNDMRK Development completed several leases totaling almost 14,000 square feet at major mixed-use development Society Wynwood.

Newly signed tenants include Starbucks, Chama De Fogo Brazilian Steakhouse and Nacho Daddy.

Starbucks will occupy 2,615 square feet of retail space at Society Wynwood. The Seattle-based coffee giant has a strong presence throughout South Florida, including at Tricera’s Shops at the Press in West Palm Beach.

Chama De Fogo leased 5,522 square feet at Society Wynwood for its second Miami location. The Brazilian steakhouse concept has become extremely popular over the years, and Chama De Fogo prides itself on its authentic gaucho barbecue and high-quality meats. The Society Wynwood location will feature a casual dining restaurant, butcher shop and delicatessen.

The Las Vegas-born Nacho Daddy opened its first store in 2010. Today, the modern Mexican-style restaurant has grown tremendously with six locations nationwide serving gourmet nachos and more. The 5,434-square-foot lease in Society Wynwood will be the restaurant’s seventh and the only one in Florida.

“We are excited to be part of the continued growth of Wynwood and bring compelling tenants such as Starbucks, Chama De Fogo and Nacho Daddy to this project,” said Tricera President | Head of Leasing Dustin Ballard. “Society Wynwood will add to the elevated ecosystem of restaurants, retail and living experiences the eclectic art district offers its residents and guests.”

Irma Figueroa, Andrew Rosenberg and Max Gelband with Comras Company are Tricera and LNDMRK’s leasing representatives at Society Wynwood.

Elizabeth Higgins, Marty Arrivo and Aracibo Quintana of Acre represented Starbucks in its lease. Elizabeth Hazan of Byblos Hospitality Holdings was a consultant for Chama De Fogo. Jenny Geffen and Dave Preston with Colliers represented Nacho Daddy.

In partnership with Society Wynwood developers PMG and Greybrook Realty Partners, Tricera and LNDMRK are forward-purchasing over 32,000 square feet of ground floor retail at the project. The 2431 NW Second Ave. development is conveniently located in the center of the Wynwood Art District, within walking distance of many new developments and retail shops. Along with the ground-floor retail, Society Wynwood has almost 300 modern residential units and a private parking garage, making it the area’s premier new development.

Tricera Capital, Related Group Announce Schonfeld Strategic Advisors Lease Expansion At Wynwood’s The Dorsey

Tricera Capital, the Miami-based commercial real estate firm led by Ben Mandell, Alex Karakhanian’s LNDMRK Development and market leader Related Group finalized a lease expansion with New York-based hedge fund Schonfeld Strategic Advisors at the partnership’s Dorsey in the Wynwood neighborhood.

Schonfeld is doubling its office space at the Dorsey, adding a second floor to its previous lease at the mixed-use development. The lease expansion brings the Dorsey’s office component to 100-percent occupancy.

The roughly 18,000-square-foot lease expansion brings Schonfeld’s total Dorsey footprint to about 37,000 square feet. Terms of the lease were not disclosed.

“This is a testament to the quality of not only the Dorsey, but the Wynwood neighborhood as a whole,” Related President Jon Paul Perez said. “Firms like these can go anywhere in South Florida, but Wynwood is at the top of every list. The neighborhood has truly hit its stride and we look forward to continuing to drive its thoughtful growth.”

Tricera, LNDMRK and Related teamed up to develop the Dorsey, with renowned Arquitectonica designing the project. The property includes more than 300 apartments, 78,000 square feet of office, 33,000 square feet of retail and ample parking and open space.

“This is another example of high-profile financial firms showing their commitment to the Miami office market, with Wynwood remaining especially attractive to these firms,” Tricera President/Head of Leasing Dustin Ballard said. “The pandemic-era corporate migration to South Florida continues to take shape, as our region’s office sector keeps outperforming other major U.S. metropolitan areas. Relocation demand is still incredibly high as we begin 2023.”

Randy Abend and Paul Mas of JLL’s New York office and Matthew Goodman, formerly with JLL’s Miami office, represented Schonfeld in the Dorsey lease, while Cameron Tallon, Emily Brais, Eric Groffman and Randy Carballo of CBRE represented ownership.

Four Projects Coming Soon To Wynwood

The evolution of the Wynwood Arts District in Miami continues with new condos, hotels, office, and retail buildings replacing the old graffiti-decorated warehouses that once served as artist workshops, galleries, and factories.

According to the Wynwood Business Improvement District, four projects are slated to break ground near North Miami Avenue within the next few years.

In late 2023, Rilea Group, a real estate development company based in Brickell, intends to start building The Mohawk Wynwood, a 12-story mixed-use building with 225 apartments, 22,000 square feet of ground floor retail, and 3,500 square feet of offices. The project includes a roof top pool deck, a dog park, a two-level gym, and a residents’ lounge.

The Mohawk Wynwood will be built on a 1.5-acre site at 56 N.E. 29th St. that the Rilea Group bought from Lombardi Properties for $22 million in June 2021. It is planned to be completed by late 2024 or early 2025, the Wynwood BID stated.

Another project by the Rilea Group, The Rider Wynwood will be a 12-story, 131-unit building with 6,000 square feet of retail, a rooftop deck pool, a dog park, a resident’s lounge, and a state-of-the-art gym.

According to the Wynwood BID, the project, which may be used as a short-term rental property, is expected to break ground in late 2023. It will be built on a 1.5-acre property at 94 N.E. 29th St. that the Rilea Group acquired for $12.21 million in October 2021.

L&L Holding and Oak Row Equities, a pair of real estate development firms with roots in New York, intend to build about 266,000 square feet of offices, 509 apartment units, about 26,000 square feet of retail, and a 25,000-square-foot outdoor public plaza at 95 N.W. 29th St.

L&L and Oak Row Equities (formerly known as Carpe Real Estate Partners) invested $53 million assembling the 2.85-acre site where Wynwood Plaza will be built.

The Related Group in Miami has teamed up with hotelier Sydell Group and New York-based TriStar Capital to build NoMad Residences at 280 N.W. 27th St. The project will include 329 short-term rental condos, 18,452 square feet of commercial and about 200 parking spaces.

The Related Group, TriStar Capital, and Lndmrk Development paid $26.5 million for the 1.25-acre site where NoMad will be built in September 2021. The project is expected to break ground early next year and projected to be finished in 2024.

Cube Wynwd Trades For $62 Million

Tricera Capital, the Miami-based commercial real estate firm led by Ben Mandell, and Alex Karakanhian’s LNDMRK Development closed the $62 million sale of the Cube Wynwd office building in Miami’s popular Wynwood neighborhood.

The sale to Brick & Timber Collective closed on Dec. 13. As part of the transaction, Tricera and LNDMRK retained an undisclosed ownership stake in Cube Wynwd. Tricera and LNDMRK originally acquired the 100,000-square-foot office building, which includes ground-floor retail, rooftop space and parking, for $28 million in an April 2021 off-market deal.

“We are thrilled with the execution of our business plan for Cube Wynwd, culminating in this significant disposition,” Tricera Chief Financial Officer Christian Ramirez said. “This investment underscores the depth and versatility of Tricera 2.0, as we tapped into our robust acquisitions and asset management divisions, top-tier leasing professionals, team members with development experience and real estate finance experts. We look forward to replicating the model at our many other investments and developments.”

Tony Arellano of DWNTWN Realty Advisors represented both buyer and seller in the transaction.

Prior to completing the disposition, Tricera finalized a five-year lease with Boston’s Northeastern University to occupy the 10,976-square-foot fifth floor of the 222 NW 24th St. building. Northeastern plans to operate a brand-new graduate degree program tailored to working professionals in Miami’s rapidly growing fintech industry.

The Northeastern deal maintains Cube’s 100% leased status, as investment firm Schonfeld Strategic Advisors is set to relocate from Cube to The Dorsey, a Wynwood mixed-use building Tricera and LNDMRK partnered with The Related Group to develop. Schonfeld is expected to move to The Dorsey in early 2023.

“Northeastern’s lease at Cube is yet another example of where Wynwood’s office market is headed and reinforces the building’s incredible tenant mix,” Tricera President/Head of Leasing Dustin Ballard said. “It is exciting that local fintech professionals will have an opportunity to pursue a graduate degree from a renowned university. That will help take the fintech sector – and the City of Miami – to build upon the accomplishments and growth of the past few years.”

Additional Cube tenants include Blockchain.com, Ecuadorean fintech firm Kushki, Shaolin Capital Management, Brazilian footwear manufacturer Grendene, office supply and furniture online retailer Poppin, tech firm Transmit, and more.

Brick & Timber To Buy Cube Wynwd Office Building For $60M

Brick & Timber Collective plans to purchase its third Wynwood building.

Glenn Gilmore’s Brick & Timber put the Cube Wynwd offices at 222 Northwest 24th Street under contract for over $60 million. The seller is a joint venture of Tricera Capital and Alex Karakhanian’s Lndmrk Development, which will retain a 20 percent stake, two of the sources said.

In March, Brick & Timber paid $49 million for Wynwood Annex at 215 Northwest 24th Street, across the street from Cube Wynwd. The deal marked the San Francisco-based firm’s debut in South Florida. On the heels of that deal, Brick & Timber bought the three-story office and retail building at 2724 and 2734 Northwest First Avenue for $9 million in May.

Cube Wynwd is almost fully leased, one of the sources said.

The eight-story, roughly 100,000-square-foot building was completed in 2019. The developers, Redsky Capital and JZ Capital Partners, sold it to Tricera and Lndmrk for $28 million in the spring of last year.

David Edelstein, Related And Partners Plan Resi Project On Former RedSky Property In Wynwood

David Edelstein’s TriStar Capital, Related Group, Alex Karakhanian’s Lndmrk Development and Tricera Capital paid $26.5 million for a development site where they plan to build a residential project.

Chinese firm Seven Valleys, led by real estate moguls Zhang Xin and Pan Shiyi, sold the nearly 1.3-acre property anchored at 2700 Northwest Second Avenue in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood. Seven Valleys had been the lender for the property, which previously belonged to RedSky Capital and JZ Capital Partners, whose planned developments never came to fruition.

TriStar and its partners plan to build “well over” 300 residential units on the site, Edelstein told The Real Deal. They could break ground in about 10 months, he said. The venture secured a roughly $20 million loan from Comerica Bank.

Edelstein said the market for new development in Wynwood is “on fire” and that there is very little undeveloped land left.

The development site sold at a loss compared to its $31 million sale to RedSky and JZ in 2016. The previous owner, Wynwood pioneer Goldman Properties, had planned a mixed-use development with 72 residences, 68 hotel rooms, about 11,000 square feet of ground floor retail and 47,000 square feet of offices.

In Wynwood, Related, Karakhanian and Tricera are partnering to develop another project, called the Dorsey Wynwood, at 2801 Northwest Third Avenue. They broke ground earlier this year. The project will have more than 300 rental apartments, commercial space, office space and amenities.

Monthly rents are expected to range between $1,800 and $3,900. Amenities will include a gym with a yoga studio and spa, a courtyard, recreation area for pets and a garage, according to a spokesperson.
