World Leading Civilian Drones Manufacturer to Open at 2349 NW 2nd Avenue
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 1,776-square-foot lease for DJI, the market leader in easy-to-fly drones and aerial photography systems, to open its first premier store in the United States in partnership with Drone Nerds, its largest authorized dealer in the country. When it opens in spring 2017, the Miami location will be China-based DJI’s second store in North America, following the recently opened DJI Customer Experience Store in Manhattan.
RKF Executive Vice President Drew Schaul and Associate Aaron Labovitz represented DJI in the transaction. The landlord, 2301 Wynwood LLC, was represented by Metro 1 Properties and Whitehall Realty Group.
“As the maker of one of the hottest consumer electronic products on the market today, DJI will be an excellent addition to the retail mix and cater to the interests of the creative, tech-savvy and increasingly millennial population of Wynwood,” said Schaul. “With its industrial architecture and edgy feel, Wynwood has recently emerged as a destination of choice for TAMI tenants—technology, advertising, media and information—and hip brands, making way for such entertainment brands as DJI.”
Situated on the southwest corner of NW 2nd avenue and NW 24th street, in the heart of the Wynwood Art District and a few steps from the world-famous Wynwood Walls, DJI will occupy 1,776 square feet in a single-story retail space. DJI will share co-tenancy with Detroit-based luxury lifestyle brand Shinola and Italian-crafted accessories brand Illesteva, and will be situated directly across from Panther Coffee, Scotch & Soda, and Coyo Taco.
