As Miami keeps growing into a mega global city, old areas gain momentum as “new and emerging” possibilities for real estate buyers. Not everybody is ready to pay $500 to $2000 a foot in new construction (although still very convenient compared to new construction in NY which is over $5,000 a foot). There are areas like Little Havana which are minutes away from Brickell where you can buy new construction for as low as $200,000 totally finished. Little Havana is an area with very good rental history, and now with the boom in Brickell, many people will want to live close but can’t afford the rent there so this becomes an excellent option. Click on the link below to see one example of a great option in this area:
The Miami Convention and Visitors Bureau is doing a campaign to highlight different neighborhoods and their potential. The following article from the Miami Herald is one example of this trend:

Life is full of questions but there are a few things that are certain: taxes, death, and the fact that Miami is “the” place to be…Miami is definitely the pretty girl in the party and everybody wants to dance with her. Over 170 new construction projects are a testimony to the strength of the real estate market. Miami’s hotness no longer comes exclusively from its eternal summer but is now fueled by the world’s need for both personal and economic safety, plus some major infrastructural changes.
Some people question the solidity and substance of this boom. If this would be only and exclusively based on the turbulent situation in countries like Venezuela and Argentina, or the high property prices in Brazil, I myself would wonder. But there is much more fueling our market than the need of the Latin American affluent to park their money and the fact that prices in Miami are still below most big cities in the world.
Miami is becoming a hot alternative for businesses both domestic and international. The expansion of the Panama Canal takes the traffic of ships from 100 per hour to 400 per hour. The dredging project in Miami allows for the deepest and largest last generation of ships, something that very few ports in the world can offer. The construction of a tunnel from the port to 395 gives access to highways and I-95 in less than 4 minutes avoiding traffic congestion. 13 Super Post-Panamax Gantry Cranes recently arrived and in conjunction with the Rail and Intermodal will allow for fast and efficient transferring of containers directly from the port into the train and from there to any place in the country, East or West. This is no Science Fiction and we are not talking decades, but months until it is up and running.
Miami which is already the cruise capital of the world, will become the first cargo and commercial port in the world, ranking higher than Hong Kong due to the modern infrastructure and the strategic location.
Another important factor that will bring more companies to choose Miami as it’s operational base is that Florida does not charge tax on commercial leases and salaries and expenses are more competitive here. As you can guess by now…more companies coming to Miami means more need for housing and warehouse, more jobs and a more vibrant economy.
The Miami Beach Convention Center master plan represents a public and private investment of $1.3 billion, an annual incremental citywide event impact of $32 million, an annual incremental restaurant and retail spending of $4 million and an annual incremental hotel and in house meeting impact of $74 million. The project includes parking for over 1000 cars, 500,000 + feet of exhibit halls plus another 130,000 ft convertible space, 200,000 ft of outdoor event space, 800 room hotel, 29 acres of parks, 70,000 ft of restaurants and retail which will create 10,000 construction jobs and another 1,600 jobs created by increased Convention guests.
The Civic Center, currently known as the Health District, is going through a phenomenal expansion that will have an economic impact of 39,000 employees plus 60,000 indirect jobs. It’s Life Science Park, a joint venture with the University of Miami will include a cutting edge medical town with a stem cell institute, diabetes research, cancer center, genomics, etc.These hospitals and new health facilities will demand more housing for employees and visitors as well as flex space to host all the bio-technology companies that will be providing services and research.Again, more jobs, more spending, more money available, more need for real estate equals higher prices.
Miami airport also gives an accurate idea of Miami’s growth and potential:
- It has the highest number of international flights in the US.
- # 1 in International Cargo in US (Miami, NY, LA)
- #9 in International Cargo World-wide (up one notch from 10)
- Four International carriers serving MIA-Asia with direct flights and non-stop passenger service planned in less than two years.
Additionally, Miami’s new futuristic airport will turn into a destination in itself with the following investment:
- An investment of $141 million in the Hospitality Center
- $12 million investment in Convenience Center
- $359 million in Business Park
- Total investment of $512 million in a period of 5 to 9 years.
In addition to the residential and commercial growth, Miami is becoming one of the cultural capitals of the world. Art Basel, the Mecca of art collectors and connoisseurs, presents premier artwork from across the globe. Over 250 of the world’s leading galleries participate, drawing over 50,000 visitors each year. There are many different satellite exhibits like Untitled in South Beach and several parties, gallery events and a huge “movida” all over Miami during Art Basel week. New museums revert the flow of cultural week-end escapades “to” Miami instead of “away from”. The Frost Museum of Art which can proudly stand with its head up along with any New York museum, and the Frost Museum of Science with a planetary, futuristic architecture and vavaboom is sealing Miami’s stature as the new trendy cultural American hub.
In conclusion, reality is showing that Miami is not just a pretty face, it has the looks and it has the brains. A complete package that developers and buyers both domestic and international want to marry for the long run…

The boundaries between art and real estate are getting blurred. New construction is characterized by astounding design, raising the bar with each project. Luxury brand fashion names and interior designs catered to the taste of different cultures are no longer enough. Neither are world renown architects that create iconic buildings in major world capitals. The competition for the attention and the pocket of the world’s most affluent buyers is pushing developers to find more ways to create an impact. This is not in any way new to history. Madame Pompadour, the famous mistress of the Sun King Louis XIV remained his favorite throughout the years by hiring the best architects to design and build exquisite palaces and gardens that fueled his interest and maintained her status as a shining star (does Versailles ring a bell?).
Eduardo Costantini, the Argentinian developer and art collector behind Oceana Towers in Bal Harbor has purchased two larger than life sculptures by Jeff Koons for $14 million to decorate the building. One is “Pluto and Proserpina” (inspired by the myth of the roman goddess raped by the god of the underworld) made of chromium and live plants. The other one is “Ballerina”. The sculptures will be placed at each end of a reflecting pool breezeway in Oceana Towers, but the first piece will be lent before to the Whitney museum in New York for a retrospective show. After all, the building is planned to be completed in 2016 so there is plenty of time to let New Yorkers enjoy it for a while.
If you would like to become the lucky owner of one of the 250 residences in Oceana Towers in Bal Harbor and enjoy this artwork and a building that is a masterpiece in itself, contact us without delay.
We have seasoned and talented associates speaking every language you imagine and with a superb market knowledge, ready to help you buy or sell real estate in Miami including Aventura, Sunny Isles, Bal Harbor, Hallandale Beach and Hollywood.
