DORAL, Fla., May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Transwestern's Miami office today announced the signing of a long-term lease renewal with international sanitary ware and ceramic tile solutions company, The Roca Tile Group, for 108,000 square feet at the Dolphin Commerce Center in Doral, Fla. The renewal represents The Roca Tile Group's commitment to Miami as the hub for its North American logistics.
"Having represented Roca in its original lease negotiations at this location and a long-standing relationship with The Roca Group nationwide, we had a keen understanding of its core real estate requirements," said Transwestern's John Vaught, senior vice president and representation for the tenant. "Almost a decade later and coupled with the enhancements to the Port of Miami, the city, and in particular Dolphin Commerce Center, is still the ideal location for our client from which to manage its North American operations."
Of the 108,000 square feet leased by The Roca Tile Group, 15,000 square feet account for Class A office and showroom space while the other 93,000 is Class A warehouse. Proximity to the port, airport and wholesale distribution opportunities and the modernization and ongoing enhancements of the Port of Miami were key factors in solidifying this transaction.
Headquartered in Barcelona, The Roca Tile Group is a worldwide leader in manufacturing, distributing and marketing of high-quality ceramic and porcelain tile under four brands: Roca, Laufen, United States Ceramic Tile and Incepa. The Roca Group benefits from having a North American headquarters in Miami due to its role as the "gateway" to both Americas.
