TRACK RECORD – LA EPOCA
LA EPOCA – 1 NE 1st Street, Miami, FL
La Epocca: The Urban Core Division was engaged to sell a five-story, 50,000-square-foot historic building in downtown Miami operating as La Epoca, a family-owned department store. La Epoca moved to another location in Miami because the business model was no longer working in the downtown area.
The footprint is only 9,000 square feet, so it was not a future development play. Our marketing strategy focused on the historic qualities of the building, which was originally a Walgreens food hall with an elegant restaurant counter. We highlighted the stellar location on one of the best corners in downtown Miami.
Our efforts drew the attention of local developer Daniel Pena, who had lovingly restored the Langford Hotel to grandeur. Pena purchased La Epoca and is creating a mixed-used entertainment complex.
