Chicago-headquartered private equity firm Thoma Bravo is opening in Brickell, where it expects to station 30 employees — at least 10 of them new, according to Chip Virnig, a firm partner.
Their new home: the top two floors of 830 Brickell, the 55-story landmark tower designed by the architects responsible for two of the world’s tallest skyscrapers.
More than 10 companies are looking at 830 Brickell, according to insiders. Miami’s second-tallest office tower (after Southeast Financial Center) is being developed by Vlad Doronin’s OKO Group and Jonathan Goldstein’s Cain International and designed by renowned architects Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, designers of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. WeWork has signed on as anchor tenant and Microsoft is said to be considering the building as well.
