The South Florida Business Journal has signed a lease at Brickell City Tower, which will give the media company an office in the heart of Miami’s business district.

The Business Journal plans to occupy the 6,373-square-foot space on the 27th floor of the office tower at 80 S.W. Eighth St. by Sept. 1. It’s located near Mary Brickell Village, Brickell City Centre and the Brickell Metrorail station.

Tere Blanca, of Blanca Commercial Real Estate, and Chase Monroe, of JLL, were the brokers on the deal. The landlord is an affiliate of Banyan Street Capital.

“There is so much growth and so much business happening in Miami that we felt it is very important that the Business Journal have a stronger presence near many of the most prominent companies and business leaders that permeate our news coverage,” said Melanie Dickinson, president and publisher of the South Florida Business Journal.

Dickinson said she’s excited about the new office space being designed to host many of the Business Journal’s events – including Executive Roundtables, Critical Conversations and Breakfast with the Business Journal – that its readers have come to rely on for business intelligence throughout the years.

"The Miami office puts us closer to some of our most trusted sources and the news our readers need to know,” Editor-in-Chief Al Lewis said. “It’s another way for us to get deeper into the South Florida region we cover."

The Business Journal hired Gigi Alvarez, of G. Alvarez Studio, as architect and interior designer for the space.

The Business Journal produces a weekly print edition for subscribers and free daily web stories with the latest breaking business news in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties. It is owned by American City Business Journals, a unit of Advance Publications, which operates 42 other Business Journal media outlets, Condé Nast magazines, Parade magazine, the Golf Digest companies, Newhouse Newspapers and cable television interests.
