Florida East Coast Industries has appointed CBRE to lead the pre-leasing efforts at the upcoming 101 Fort Lauderdale, a 190,000-square-foot office tower in the city’s Progresso Village neighborhood. CBRE’s Senior Vice President Christopher Gallagher and Executive Vice President Jeffrey Kelly will handle office pre-leasing at the property.

The building is located at 101 Northwest 3rd St. and features open floor plates of 25,000 square feet with floor-to-ceiling windows. In addition to the office component, the property encompasses 15,000 square feet of retail space which is set to host several restaurants, coffee shops, fitness and conference facilities.

Transit-oriented property

With 101 Fort Lauderdale, we are thrilled to continue creating dynamic environments that integrate mixed-uses such as office and retail around alternative transportation modes,” said Bruce Snyder, ‎executive vice president & CFO at FECI, in a prepared statement. “The incredible success with 2 and 3 MiamiCentral is evidence of the robust demand for office space near transportation hubs in South Florida’s urban cores.

The building’s location provides tenants with direct access to Brightline’s Fort Lauderdale Station, which is one block away, Broward County Transit and Sun Trolley. The office tower is close to Tri-Rail, as well as Lyft pick-up and drop-off points.

Brightline is revolutionizing how employers in South Florida see the workplace and talent accessibility,” said Scott Correale, Fort Lauderdale market leader at CBRE, in prepared remarks. “From workplace strategy to longer-term recruitment, we are seeing our corporate clients very interested in learning how these new office locations and the use of Brightline could benefit their business operations.
