JLL Tapped to Lease Fort Lauderdale MXU Property

JLL has been tapped to lease Monarch Gardens, a 95,000-square-foot mixed-use property in Miramar, FL.

Located at 14429-14485 Miramar Parkway, Monarch Gardens recently underwent a $4 million renovation project led by construction firm Origin Construction, G3 Architecture Interiors Planning and engineering firm Kamm Consulting. The project’s upgrades included a complete renovation of the main lobby, common areas and bathrooms. Within the office tower, ownership also installed bipolar ionization systems intended to mitigate the spread of airborne pathogens such as the novel coronavirus. Monarch Gardens features 54,000 square feet of office space and 41,000 square feet of retail space at the street level.

A JLL team of Katie Fernandez-Espinosa and Rafael Romero will be spearheading the retail and office leasing at the property on behalf of the ownership group Dubner Properties. Property management and owner’s representative services are provided by Gibraltar Realty & Management.
