Blackstone, one of the world’s leading investment firms with $619 billion in assets, is setting up a Blackstone Technology & Innovations (BXTI) office in Miami, with plans to create more than 200 high-paying tech jobs for local talent over the next couple of years.
Last month, Blackstone signed a lease for 41,000 square feet in downtown Miami. The offices will be in the 2 MiamiCentral building, part of the mixed-used development that includes the Brightline rail station. Being next to the Brightline was important to the team and its South Florida regional recruiting strategy. Some office build-outs are ongoing, and the plan is to move in by early summer. Right now the team is in a temporary space in the Southeast Financial Center.
