Jones Lang LaSalle announced recently that the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), formerly known as the Miami Art Museum, has selected the firm to provide integrated facility management services at its new state-of-the-art museum complex in downtown Miami.
Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron, PAMM will offer 200,000 square feet of programmable space, including 120,000 square feet of interior space — more than three times that of the museum’s current facility. It also will include approximately 80,000 square feet of exterior program space for the display of works of art, educational activities, relaxation and dining. Located alongside Biscayne Bay in downtown Miami’s Museum Park, the museum is scheduled to open in December.
Jones Lang LaSalle vice president Jay Leone will oversee the property management of PAMM and optimize its space use. His team will be responsible for a full-service platform that includes: engineering and operations, energy and sustainability initiatives, project management, landscaping, security, sourcing and emergency preparedness.
On a day-to-day basis, the property management team will monitor the base building equipment necessary to maintain the atmospheric conditions for preserving the artwork; coordinate with museum staff for preparation of new displays; and offer support for private and community events that will take place at the Museum.
“Pérez Art Museum Miami is being built to engage and inspire both residents and visitors from around the world,” said Steven Froot, senior vice president and director of operations at Jones Lang LaSalle. “Our platform of integrated services will make a significant contribution to this goal by providing specialized expertise, processes and systems all customized to support the museum’s opening and its day-to-day operations.”
PAMM will be an anchor of the 29-acre Museum Park overlooking Biscayne Bay. Museum Park, a vibrant mix of green space and cultural offerings, is Miami’s urban redesign vision for the area now known as Bicentennial Park. In addition to the landmark new facilities for PAMM, Museum Park also is the future site of the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science.
“In addition to gallery spaces, the new museum will house an auditorium, an educational complex with a library, classrooms, and a media lab; a waterfront restaurant and museum store; and a variety of outdoor spaces for special events and programs,” said John Safranek, CFO of PAMM, “We are confident that Jones Lang LaSalle has the right team of experts to manage such a wide variety of offerings and activities.”
