Company Leases 10,047 Square Feet at Wells Fargo Center

In a new to market deal, New York based Spafinder Wellness, Inc. ® will move its global headquarters from New York to the Miami market, leasing 10,047 square feet at MetLife’s Wells Fargo Center in downtown Miami.

Brian Gale, Principal with Taylor Mathis, negotiated the lease on behalf of building owner MetLife.

“We looked at a lot of potential spaces but MetLife’s Wells Fargo Center caught our attention immediately.  It has fresh amenities, an ideal location, spectacular views, and it fits the wellness-oriented, high-end partners we represent around the world.  In our search for a downtown location, we just could not pull the trigger–but not with this building. We immediately saw us doing business here,” said Spafinder Chairman Pete Ellis. “The energy in Miami is exactly the kind of vitality we want to foster at Spafinder Wellness. Miami is at the crossroads of the Americas and has been called ‘America’s City of the Future.’ The business climate will be conducive to our continued growth and further our mission to help people–including our staff– live well every day.”

Ellis noted that the driving factors behind the decision include a strong business environment that performs above the national average, a lifestyle that is more conducive to healthy living and easier access to the rapidly expanding Latin American/Caribbean wellness travel market.

“The Spafinder Wellness headquarter relocation to Miami and specifically to Wells Fargo Center is a boon to the city and to our development which continues to attract many of the country’s most prominent companies,” stated Chuck Davis, Director and Head of the MetLife Southeast Regional Office. Wells Fargo Center is one of MetLife’s premier developments and long-term investments.

Spafinder Wellness has a global network of 20,000-plus spas and fitness locations and is the world’s largest media, marketing and gifting company for the wellness industry. The company’s Corporate Wellness 365® division offers incentive products and partnerships that help to foster wellness in the workplace. Spafinder also has offices in London and Toronto.

“We are continuing to see strong interest at Wells Fargo Center from new to market tenants,” stated Brian Gale.  Taylor & Mathis has executed six new leases this year at the building three of which were new to market tenants.  The 47-story tower will soon be home to Spafinder Wellness, Inc., ® Moto Capital, Dentmall of Florida, Berkadia Commercial Mortgage and La Prairie Group.  PwC moved its office from Brickell Avenue earlier this year and leased 43,277 square feet at the downtown tower.
