Miami — Helm Equities has announced plans for Parterre 42, a $300 million office tower that will occupy a full city block between NE 42nd and 43rd streets in Miami’s Design District.
The 500,000-square-foot development will offer 80,000 square feet of functional outdoor space dispersed across each floor of the building with communal work tables, outdoor power and charging stations, and flexible furniture groupings. COOKFOX Architects designed the project.
Additional amenities at the property, which features unobstructed views of Biscayne Bay and the downtown Miami skyline, will include an indoor-outdoor cafe, multi-level fitness center, bike and scooter storage, and valet parking alongside retail space.
The project was designed to achieve LEED Gold and WELL Gold certifications with a dedicated outdoor air system and an all-electric HVAC system. “We worked with COOKFOX to turn the typical office building inside-out, incorporating massive amounts of functional outdoor space on every floor so that occupants of Parterre 42 feel like they are truly working in nature,” says Ayal Horovits, principal at Helm Equities.
Paul Amrich, Neil King, Gordon Messinger and Camron Tallon of CBRE have been tapped to lease the project’s 320,000 square feet of office space. A timeline for construction was not announced.
New York City-based Helm Equities is an affiliate of JEMB Realty Corp. The company is focused on the development, ownership and management of office, retail and residential assets.
