Waterford at Blue Lagoon rebrands to appeal to millennials
One of Miami’s premier corporate office complexes is rebranding with yoga sessions, food trucks and bike-sharing to attract millennial workers.
Waterford at Blue Lagoon, home to the offices of Airbus, FedEx and Burger King, will be renamed Waterford Business District after a $10 million capital improvement program. Nuveen Real Estate and Allianz Real Estate, which control more than 1.8 million square feet or 60% of office space in Waterford, are paying for the upgrades, which will follow another $10 million spent on renovations last year , according to a spokesperson.
The waterfront business district near Miami International Airport is home to more than 100 multinational corporations, according to a news release. Tenants in the Nuveen/Allianz building portfolio will have access to conference facilities, bike and ride sharing programs, weekly outdoor yoga and boot camp sessions, and two fitness centers physical. Tenants will also have access to pop-up food and beverage options, food trucks, business networking opportunities and professional development seminars.
Blanca Commercial Real Estate handles rentals in the Waterford business district, run by Juan Ruiz and Andres del Corral. Other services and amenities in the Waterford business district include a child care center and post office.
The area will soon see an increase in new residential units and hotel rooms. In December, Miami commissioners approved a crucial zoning change that allowed developers to build residential units in the office park. The change allowed the Weiss Group to develop six buildings at Blue Lagoon with a total of 888 residential units and 294 hotel rooms.
