Cushman & Wakefield, as exclusive advisor, is pleased to present the extraordinary opportunity to acquire X Miami (the “Property”) – a 32-story, transit-oriented high rise located in globally renowned Downtown Miami, Florida. X Miami is the city’s premier rental apartment community that opened with much fanfare in the summer of 2018 and has since experienced a tremendous concession-free lease-up. The Property is composed of 464 luxury residences with 729 square feet of retail in the building’s lobby. The lobby retail includes on-site coffee bar Breezeblock Coffee and first-class restaurant Jaguar Sun.
First-tier cities, including Miami, have begun to experience an affordability challenge as new high-end and highly-amenitized products lack an affordable entry price point. X Miami’s innovative approach and creative design – through unit size and layout – addresses the problem of ever-increasing entry price points into highly urbanized markets. X Miami’s flexibility of accommodating both rent-by-bedroom (RBB) units and short-term rental (STR) operations at ownership’s discretion allows young urban professionals the opportunity to experience the vibrant downtown at an attractive and cost effective price, without sacrificing amenities or living experiences; in fact, they are provided a better one. RBB units are proving to be a great starting point for younger renters who then graduate within the building to full units as their needs and careers grow.
The Property’s downtown location presents an extremely rare acquisition opportunity, which a long-term investor will greatly benefit from owning due to the building’s quality and positioning. X Miami’s landmark location and adjacency to a Metromover station puts it at the forefront of the impending growth that Miami is experiencing in its ascent into a first-tier world-class city.
