Investment Thesis

Brickman is currently repositioning 44 West Flagler Street to become a top-tier building in the Downtown Miami Class B office market. Brickman has identified an opportunity to separate 44 W Flagler from the competitive set by implementing a strategic base building capital improvement program and committing to spend $50-$60 per square foot for tenant improvements in currently vacant space. Upon acquisition, the in-place rents at the Property were significantly below targeted market rents and there is substantial near-term rollover, which presents an opportunity to drive rental rates and add value by leveraging Brickman's local market expertise and proactive in-house leasing capabilities.
