MIAMI, FL, Sep 29, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - SKYX Platforms Corp. (NASDAQ:SKYX) (d/b/a "Sky Technologies") ("SKYX," "we" or "the Company"), a highly disruptive platform technology company with over 60 issued and pending patents globally for simplifying and enhancing safety and automation in homes and buildings, today announced that it secured a 10-year roof right lease for signage on one of the tallest buildings in downtown Miami, across the street from the Miami Heat FTX Arena and Biscayne Bay.
The new building is located on 400 Biscayne Blvd (US-1) and will include office space, residential as well as a high-end modern hotel. The downtown Miami area is both a U.S. and international hub for world leading companies - with the SKYX rooftop signage expected to be seen by tens of millions, including on TV shows and on Miami skyline imagery.
As part of the lease, SKYX has also secured a high-end, state of the art, high ceiling office space with 360-degree views and expects to open its U.S. and international sales offices, as well as its corporate headquarters, in the new location in 2023. As part of the agreement, the Company can start paying rent in January 2024. In addition, the Landlord will provide the Company with an improvement allowance of up to $2.25 million, which may be used for the construction of the Premises, including the reasonable cost of design, space planning, consultants, and construction drawings. The Company intends to use part of the office space and to sublease the remainder to minimize expenses.
Rani Kohen, Founder and Executive Chairman of SKYX Platforms, said: "Securing a long-term lease for SKYX signage and offices in the heart of downtown Miami provides an incredible level of brand awareness for SKYX. As reported, FTX paid $135 million to secure a long-term lease for naming of our next-door neighbor's building, the Miami Heat Arena, now called FTX arena - and that speaks for itself.
"As we position ourselves to embark on our commercialization journey, this provides a significant foundation for our company on many levels. I look forward to moving into this exciting new space and elevating our public profile through continued operational execution, with the objective of creating sustainable, long-term value for our shareholders," concluded Kohen.
