One of Miami’s most in-demand neighborhoods is getting a welcomed dose of modern office space. The Offices at THE WELL is part of a new mixed-use development set to rise in Miami’s exclusive Bay Harbor Islands neighborhood, becoming the first high-end office building to launch in the community in decades. Developed by Miami-based Terra, THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands development will include 98,420 square feet of class AA office space, 54 luxury residences, 11,000 square feet dedicated to an integrated wellness experience operated by New York-based wellness company, THE WELL, and a 6,500 square foot signature food and beverage outlet, complete with an expansive rooftop with amenities, garage parking and an elevated plaza. Construction is scheduled to begin in Q1 2023, with completion anticipated in late 2024.
Located at 1177 Kane Concourse, The Offices at THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands will meet growing demand for high-end boutique office space as residents and companies continue to gravitate to South Florida, while reinvigorating Bay Harbor’s iconic Kane Concourse main thoroughfare.
THE WELL New York opened in 2019 as a luxury health and wellness destination that offers clients a range of holistic healthcare services – from Eastern healing practices and Western medicine – including fitness classes, yoga and meditation, acupuncture, sound therapy, spa treatments, and access to the top practitioners in functional medicine and beyond. Since its New York City launch, the brand has expanded with additional locations in Connecticut with THE WELL at Mayflower Inn, and Costa Rica with THE WELL at Hacienda AltaGracia. THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands will become the company’s first Florida location.
“THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands will be a premier address for working, living and wellness just as Miami enjoys a surge of new residents and businesses,” said David Martin, CEO of Terra. “The Offices at THE WELL will be an ideal option for companies looking to incorporate wellness into the workplace, with tenants being able to access all of the exclusive benefits of THE WELL’s curated programming and wellness center.”
Designed by Arquitectonica, with interiors by Meyer Davis, the Offices at THE WELL will reimagine the traditional office lobby into a programmed social space for tenants featuring food and beverage service, unique gathering spaces, and the ability to book THE WELL micro treatments. The development will include four floors of office space complemented by a grand lobby and a rooftop amenity deck, with on-site amenities such as a social lobby and café with comfortable lounge areas, where coffees, juices, and culinary treats can be enjoyed and ordered via text for quick, convenient service. For an outdoor work experience, tenants will have access to greenhouse-style work pods as well as a rooftop level with outdoor meeting areas and community gardens. Office users will also benefit from additional outdoor experiences at an elevated landscaped Plaza, a controlled access parking garage, office valet, and state-of-the-art security.
Office tenants will receive a discounted membership to The Club at THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands, which will include a state-of-the-art fitness and wellness center, as well as full-service concierge services from THE WELL Team, dedicated private outdoor and indoor classes, access to annual health coaching sessions to guide tenants in creating individualized wellness plans, preferred pricing on treatments and services, and exclusive benefits across THE WELL locations globally.
Terra has enlisted a best-in-class team to represent The Offices at THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands, with the Blanca Commercial Real Estate team of Tere Blanca, Danet Linares, Christina Jolley, and Nicole Kaiser leasing the building’s office space.
“Today’s office users are placing emphasis on planning and building custom-designed space in areas that are walkable, accessible to shopping and housing, and which offer on-site outdoor recreation. The Offices at THE WELL Bay Harbor Islands checks all of these boxes – and more,” explains Tere Blanca, CEO of Blanca Commercial Real Estate. “The Offices at THE WELL’s superior technology systems, sustainability initiatives, private rooftop space, and exclusive on-site access to THE WELL and its network of health and wellness destinations globally are appealing to firms looking to establish their presence in one of Miami’s most sought-after neighborhoods.”
