Optimum Group recently broke ground on a Class A office building at 3480 Main Highway in Coconut Grove.

Named “The Optimum,” it’s among a slew of new office projects to be announced for the surging neighborhood and is located next to Greenstreet Cafe. The developer closed on a $21.5 million construction loan in June.

The project will feature four stories of office space totaling 44,000 square feet, a 6,500-square-foot restaurant on the ground floor, and a rooftop bar. Arquitectonica designed the building, which is expected to be completed in 2018 with initial occupancy expected about a year and a half from now.

The location served as the home to many failed restaurants over the years, including Senor Frog’s, Sekai, and El Sitio. The property will join several other new offices planned for the Grove, including Terra’s Mary Street and Lointer Home’s 27@Lincoln.
