Duke Realty Developing 145,535 SF, Class A Office Building in Pembroke Pines

(Weston, Fla. ‒ Mar. 24, 2015)  Duke Realty Corporation’s (Duke Realty) South Florida office announces that it has started construction of a new, four-story, 143,535-square-foot, Class A office building in Pembroke Pines, a Broward County city located 20 miles northwest of Miami. The building, which is being developed on a speculative basis, is the first of four planned office buildings on a 36-acre site that fronts I-75 at Pines Blvd. known as Pembroke Pointe. The office park is adjacent to the Shops at Pembroke Gardens, a retail lifestyle center, and will include pedestrian and automobile connectivity to the retail development.

“Our new Pembroke Pointe office building will provide businesses looking to locate their operations in this dynamic submarket a new, high-quality space that also provides convenient access to a host of amenities at the adjacent retail center,” said Ed Mitchell, Senior Vice President of Duke Realty’s Florida Region. “This building will be particularly ideal for companies that want a high-profile location or have significant square footage needs. We are pleased to be able to offer prospective tenants a first-class space solution in a readily accessible location.”

Duke Realty’s first Pembroke Pines office building is being designed and built to attain LEED® Silver certification, an independent, third-party verification that a building project is deemed to be an environmentally responsible and healthy place to work. The building, which will be composed of structural steel, tilt-wall concrete panels, and glass, is being built on 36,290-square-foot floor plates for maximum flexibility in space planning. The lobby will feature modern, upscale finishes. Surface parking around the building will provide 4.2 spaces per 1,000 rentable square feet. The building, which will be directly south of the Shops at Pembroke Gardens, will be accessible via SW 145th Avenue which connects with Pines Boulevard, an exit directly off I-75.

Parties interested in leasing space in the new Pembroke Pointe A office building or in a build-to-suit development on another site in the park are invited to contact Chris Gallagher at chris.gallagher@dukerealty.com or 954.453.5681.
