Map It!


701 Brickell is a Class-A office building in Miami, Florida, offering approximately 677,667 square feet of rentable space. Built in 1986, 701 Brickell is now owned by TIAA and houses tenants including banks, investment firms, and law offices. The building is close to 100 percent occupied.

An emphasis on energy management and sustainability is standard practice at 701 Brickell. The on-site Jones Lang LaSalle management team continually applies no- and low-cost energy efficiency measures including practicing enhanced preventative maintenance, engaging janitorial and security staff to turn off unneeded lights, and providing weekend HVAC only when required by tenants.

As part of ongoing energy management efforts, several upgrades have been completed. Parking garage and building lighting were retrofitted with energy efficient T-8 fluorescents, and motion sensors were added to lighting. The building's Energy Management System (EMS) was upgraded to provide enhanced features such as the ability to reset time schedules, outside air temperature reset, optimal start/stop, and monitoring of utility meters. Plumbing fixtures were retrofitted with low-flow models, which reduces both water and energy use. Other energy efficient technologies contributing to the building's high energy performance rating include a reflective "cool roof," variable speed drives on HVAC equipment and domestic water pumps, photocells to control lighting, and timers that reduce unnecessary water heating.

TIAA is a seven-time ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award winner whose Global Real Estate Sustainability Initiative (GRESI) reflects the firm’s strong commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency. The GRESI is a portfolio-wide initiative that sets goals for strategic energy management, emphasizes operational excellence and continual improvement, and acts as an expanded fiduciary framework to better serve the needs of clients, investors, tenants, and communities.
