The Cantor Group law firm has moved its Miami office from the Brickell Financial District to Coconut Grove.
Formerly known as Cantor & Webb, the international tax law firm signed a 10-year lease in the Biscayne Bank Tower at 2601 S. Bayshore Dr. The firm and its 25 or so employees will occupy a full floor spanning 14,411 square feet in the 22-story Class A office tower.
“We are thrilled to be in a location so readily accessible and convenient for our clients and employees,” said CEO Steven Cantor, who specializes in international tax and estate planning for high net-worth international clients. “Coconut Grove is what all of downtown Miami should have been—parks, pedestrian walkways, jogging paths, bike lands and of course great views of Biscayne Bay.”
Escaping the congested Brickell area, where parking is difficult, was an added bonus.
The lease was valued at about $7 million, a spokesman told the Daily Business Review. Leasing rates averaged $34 per square foot for Class A buildings in Coconut Grove during the second quarter, according to CBRE Inc.
