96,779 SF Property to be Rebranded and Repositioned as Medical Office Space
June 02, 2020
Miami – Transwestern Real Estate Services (TRS) announces its South Florida Agency Leasing team has been selected to exclusively lease 6262 Sunset Drive in Miami, a 96,779-square-foot, eight-story office building at the epicenter of South Miami’s healthcare hub. Transwestern Senior Vice President Christopher Dubberly will lead the leasing efforts on behalf of building owner USAA, as well as direct the property’s repositioning from traditional office to medical office space. The building will be rebranded as Sunset Medical.
“Sunset Medical is ideally located at the footsteps of South Miami Hospital’s campus. Returning the available space to its highest and best use will appeal to physicians and healthcare providers seeking premier medical office space in a market with less than 5% vacancy,” said Dubberly. “There’s a strong underlying current of pent-up patient demand for services postponed by stay-at-home restrictions. Repositioning this property to medical office now makes it an extremely attractive option for practices that are challenged with how to handle the surge in procedures and surgeries expected the latter part of the year.”
For the past 22 years, the property was 100% occupied by a single tenant that has now consolidated into the top two floors. The remaining 43,064 square feet of availability on floors one through six offer direct entry from the parking garage – a unique feature in the market and highly desirable amenity for medical office space because it eliminates the need for tenants and guests to use elevators for suite access.
“The property also provides high-profile signage opportunities along heavily traveled Sunset Drive,” said Dubberly. “Ownership has committed to renovating the building lobby and elevators, further increasing its premium market appeal.”
6262 Sunset Drive is adjacent to Baptist Health South Florida’s South Miami Hospital campus, benefiting from the hospital’s power grid and equipped with a generator, providing secure business continuity. The average household income within 3 miles is $134,215, and the population is greater than 111,000 residents, which expands to more than 350,000 people within 5 miles. The property is walkable to Metrorail’s South Miami station, as well as local restaurants, shopping districts and entertainment venues.
