Waterford Atrium’s three buildings were developed between 1991 and 1996 and have won numerous awards, including 25 Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Outstanding Building of the Year awards. 6100 Waterford and 6303 Waterford were recently recognized as BOMA International winners in the Suburban Office Park Low-Rise category.
The buildings, which are managed by Cushman & Wakefield, are LEED certified. 6505 Waterford, a 166,996-square-foot asset developed in 1996, has earned the prestigious LEED Gold v4 Operations and Maintenance: Existing Building designation. 6100 Waterford, a 162,878-square-foot building built in 1991, has earned the LEED Silver v4 Operations and Maintenance: Existing Building designation, as did 6303 Waterford, a 165,996-square-foot building developed in 1993.
Waterford Atrium earned these designations after MetLife Real Estate completed a five-year, $3.5 million capital improvement campaign, which included restroom renovations, new marble lobby floors, ENERGY STAR-rated roof replacements, new LED light fixtures in the atriums and the parking garage, resurfacing of the parking garage deck and a new state-of-the-art fitness center.
Waterford Atrium is currently 93% leased. Other notable tenants in the buildings include L’Oréal Retail Americas, Zimmer Biomet, Regus, Johnson & Johnson, Discovery Channel Latin America and Oracle.
The buildings feature garage parking, restaurants, dry cleaners, indoor and outdoor seating, lake views, day care facilities and on-site property management and leasing representatives. Waterford Atrium is situated in a Class A corporate office setting, offering exceptional access to Miami International Airport, major highways, downtown Miami and a highly-skilled workforce in neighboring communities.
The surrounding Waterford at Blue Lagoon business park is a 250-acre master-planned, mixed-use park located directly across the Dolphin Expressway from the Miami International Airport. The park comprises 20 office buildings and more than 2.8 million square feet of development, including four hotels, numerous restaurants, banking facilities, a day care center and a U.S. Post Office branch.
“The significant leasing activity we’ve seen at Waterford Atrium this year is a product of MetLife’s and Cushman & Wakefield’s award-winning ownership and management teams as well as the campus’ stellar location across from Miami International Airport,” said Mendoza. “These buildings attract companies, many of them international, for whom access to the airport and interstate system is paramount.”
