Music streaming company Spotify signed a lease in Wynwood in Miami for its new South Florida headquarters.
The company had been looking for office space in the Wynwood, Brickell and downtown Miami submarkets for months, the publication The Real Deal reported. Spotify will be taking all of the 20,000 square feet of office space at the Oasis in Wynwood, a mixed-use adaptive reuse project under construction at 2335 North Miami Avenue. Up to 100 employees can work in the new location.
The digital music service is joining other tenants such as LiveNation and WeWork in Wynwood, a neighborhood that is rapidly changing to include new office buildings, apartment complexes and hotels. Apple and Google have also reportedly been scouting for office space in Wynwood, The Real Deal reported.
Carpe Real Estate Partners, led by David Weitz and Erik Rutter, is the developer of the Oasis. The firm is redeveloping four warehouses and a courtyard into the Oasis, a project with about 17,000 square feet of retail space and a 35,000-square-foot amenitized courtyard, plus a rooftop deck. The courtyard was a selling point for Spotify, according to sources.
The courtyard will have a stage, outdoor bar, food hall and a 75-foot-tall tower with rotating art installations, according to a press release. The Oasis is expected to open later this year.
