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 10,032-square-foot lease with chef Della Heiman’s newest culinary venture, Jackson Hall, an innovative and first-of-its-kind health-based food hall, located at Civica Center in Miami’s Medical Health District. Heiman is the acclaimed chef and owner of The Wynwood Yard, Della’s Test Kitchen and Charcoal.

RKF Senior Director John Ellis and Associate Aaron Labovitz represented both the landlord, Rockpoint Group, and the tenant, Della Heiman and her business partner Ken Lyon, in the transaction.

Located on the northwest corner of 14th Street and 12th Avenue, Civica Center opened in 2013 as the first retail building in the Health District. The 35,610-square-foot building offers a mix of fast-casual eateries and service retailers, as well as gated parking for 80 cars. The second-floor food court, recently remodeled, offers patio seating and attracts a sizeable lunch crowd. The Health District has a daytime population of more than 350,000 within a three-mile radius, making it the second-largest health district in the U.S. and one of Miami’s largest employment hubs. It is also located just one mile from the new Miami Marlins baseball stadium.

“Rockpoint has invested significantly in remodeling and remerchandising Civica Center to accommodate the needs of daytime workers seeking high-quality, fast-casual food options in an attractive setting. A health-based food hall catering to a group of doctors and healthcare professionals couldn’t be more appropriate,” said Ellis. “Della Heiman is one of Miami’s most celebrated chefs, and she and her team are going to totally reprogram this space with their own special taste. We’re confident that Jackson Hall will quickly become a destination for locals and visitors alike.”

Since opening The Wynwood Yard two years ago, Heiman has transformed Miami’s culinary scene, hosting dozens of rotating food concepts and anchoring her expanding operation with Della Test Kitchen and Lyon’s Charcoal Bar & Grill.

Other noteworthy tenants at Civica Center include Quest Diagnostics, 7-Eleven, Salsa Fiesta, Dunkin’ Donuts, Jimmy Johns, La Estancia Argentina, Gateway Dental, The Young U Montessori School, and Smoothie King. Jackson Hall is scheduled to open in March 2018.
