Windstar Cruises I Doral Concourse

Windstar Cruises will move its headquarters to Doral from Seattle, as South Florida remains a magnet for out-of-state companies.

The cruise ship line inked a long-term, 9,100-square-foot lease at Doral Concourse, according to a news release from the landlord’s broker. Gordon Messinger of CBRE represented the building owner, Aventura-based MG3 Group, in the deal. Carlyle Coffin and Jim McGrath of Newmark represented Windstar.

Windstar, led by Chris Prelog, will relocate up to 40 employees next summer.

The six-story, 240,950-square-foot Doral Concourse at 8400 Northwest 36th Street was constructed in 2000, property records show.

MG3, through its real estate investment trust, bought Doral Concourse for $96 million from a fund managed by DRA Advisors in July.

The building is near CityPlace Doral, the massive mixed-use project with residential, retail and restaurants.

New-to-market firms have been both expanding and altogether relocating to South Florida, prompting positive absorption rates for the regional office market. Although vacancy rates averaged at over 10 percent across the region in the third quarter, landlords are raising rents in a bet on the flurry of leases by out-of-state companies.

Ramp Financial I Wynwood Annex

Technology company Ramp Financial inked a 8,205-square-foot office lease in the Wynwood Arts District.

Ramp, which develops virtual and physical cards for companies and offers other corporate financial solutions, will occupy space on the fifth floor of Wynwood Annex at 215 Northwest 24th Street, according to a news release from the landlords’ broker.

Tony Jones of Cushman & Wakefield represented Ramp in the deal. Tony Arellano and David Lerner of Dwntwn Realty Advisors represented the Wynwood Annex developers and landlords, Related Group and East End Capital.

The duo developed the building with 60,000 square feet of rentable space in part thanks to an $11.6 million construction loan they scored in 2018.

Wynwood Annex now is fully leased following this deal and also psychedelic company Field Trip’s leasing of 7,474 square feet. Some of the other tenants at the eight-story building are entertainment company Live Nation, Silicon Valley’s Founders Fund and Jack Abraham’s venture capital firm Atomic.
