MIAMI – RKF, the country’s leading independent real estate firm specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, announced today that it has arranged a 2,564-square-foot lease with Sergio’s Cuban Kitchen + Bar at 40 SW 12th Street in Miami’s Brickell market. The restaurant will be on the ground floor of the Hampton Inn & Suites.
RKF Managing Director John Ellis and Associate Aaron Labovitz represented the landlord, Bernard Wolfson, in the transaction. The tenant was represented by Sharon Silver of the Wenzel Investment Group.
Sergio’s newest location is on the south side of SW 12th Street, between SW 1st Avenue and S Miami Avenue, ideally situated on the ground floor of the Hampton Inn in the heart of the bustling downtown Brickell market. The building includes approximately 8,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. Sergio’s will lease the 2,564-square-foot space formerly occupied by City Slickers; the remaining space is currently leased to restaurants Batch Gastropub and 3Chefs. The property is situated close to several additional hotels, foreign consulates, bars and restaurants, and benefits from the dense foot traffic of guests and neighborhood residents alike. When it opens in July 2018, this will be Sergio’s ninth location in South Florida.
“The Brickell neighborhood is a thriving urban playground that appeals to well-heeled thirtysomethings and professionals seeking a live-work-play destination,” explained Ellis. “The neighborhood also offers exceptional dining, retail and cultural landmarks for a global audience. We’re confident Sergio’s will be a welcome addition to the area.”
