An office in Miami is not just an office

An office in Miami is becoming the goal of many US and international companies and the market is responding with luxury and state of the art options to fill the gap. Different factors make Miami a desirable destination for both a main headquarter or a branch office for both large and small companies. Miami, which has traditionally been the “retirement dream” for CEOs and professionals is now the “work and play” new dream. Tax advantages, eternal summers and a lifestyle that includes week-ends at the beach, culture, fancy restaurants and an exhuberant display of wealth are changing the way companies look at the idea of an office in Miami. The expansion of both Miami and Fort Lauderdale airports and the increase in flights make it easier to connect domestically and internationally, and of course, if your company does business with Latin America there is no question about it, an office in Miami is a must.

The office market is reacting to the ultra luxury residential trend and its new exclusive type of residents and we are seeing a need for state of the art, new and enhanced “A” offices. Prices are still extremely competitive with what you see in other important cities. Take for example this full floor (12,000 ft)  of offices available for sale or rent at 900 Biscayne . Located right across from the famous Perez Museum and the Miami Arena, very close to Brickell and Downtown (without getting into the crazy traffic and over crowded core) and the Design and Art District, right around ramp to exit in seconds to I-95 and of course on Biscayne/US1 which allows for multiple connectivity options, a huge advantage considering Miami traffic issues. This luxury building has valet parking and plenty of street parking for those who prefer fast in and outs. Once you enter this full floor be prepared to hold your jaw from dropping in an ecstatic “Ahhhhhhhhhh….and Wowwwwwwww”. The finishes and decor are truly exquisite. One side in elegant dark wood perfect for corporate and professional use and the other side edgy and trendy contemporary white, perfect for design and fashion. An abundance of private halls and wait areas, several conference rooms, and the addition of an event hall with separate entrance that can accommodate more than 100 people for your company’s presentations, client events or just your birthday party make this a great example of the new breed of high caliber corporate environment seeking an office in Miami. If you are a Fortune 500 company or want to work like one, contact us for a private showing of this one of a kind office in Miami.

Miami Shopping Malls

Miami Shopping Malls

Miami is unique and full of paradoxes: A city chosen by the old to retire and by the young to party. A place where people do business in shorts and 12 year olds wear legitimate Chanel handbags. The land of  beach parties and everyday multimillion dollar transactions where Bentleys coexist with skateboards and a new sophisticated art scene  born in the reign of the kitsch makes a mark in the world.

Miami shopping keeps adding to the list of breaking US records. We are quickly climbing the ladder of the top 5 in many areas, from the number one cruise capital to the most active airport. But without doubt, the most salient feature of Miami culture is a special emphasis in shopping, so we are also breaking records with the mall that sells the most per square foot (Aventura Mall) and now the largest shopping mall in the country: American Dream Miami Mall. The land deal for 82 acres in NW Miami Dade County by Interstate 75 and Florida Turnpike just closed, and Triple Five Group is moving to the next stage in the process of bringing to life this mega mall and theme park. The entire project is 225 acres, impressive size even for Miami shopping standards!

Bal Harbor Shoppes which used to be “the” destination for shoppers that walk in Louboutin shoes is expanding to keep up with the fierce competition for the attention of the privileged few, who are not so few in Miami any more. Aventura Mall has the largest Cartier store in the country along with many other luxury designers. Brickell City Center will allow the financial private banking crowd to shop without leaving the area. The Design District, an open shopping mall valued at $2.2 billion  has a hard to match glamour for those who prefer the outdoor Latin and European shopping style. After all, the temperature is irrelevant when you are wearing Hermes and parking at a garage that is a piece or architectural art. The Design’s District 283,000 ft City View garage wows shoppers from the moment they park  with two public art pieces by John Baldessari and a jaw dropping facade by Leong Leong and Iwamoto Scott.  And of course, for the bargain hunters there is always Sawgrass Mall.

The impact of Miami Shopping goes far beyond a fashionista dream, bringing jobs, infusing life and potential to the real estate around it and creating interesting possibilities for developers and investors. Whether you wear Prada sunglasses or not, if you are serious about investing in Miami real estate, Miami shopping trends are something to watch…

Miami Design District properties: from dingy warehouses to $2.2 billion premier luxury retail mall

Design District properties: from warehouse district to $2.2 billion luxury mall

Blackstone group has secured a $600 loan for a luxury mall at the Design District. According to Reuters, Bank of China will provide $250 million while Blackstone will provide a $100 million mezzanine loan. Deutsche Bank and Credit Agricole will split the balance.

A partnership which has luxury mogul  Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy at its core is building 1.2 million square feet of retail space across 20 buildings in the Design District. Half of the 120 stores in the plan have opened in 2014, and it is already impressive with Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Piaget stores around a glass courtyard with a sculpture by Buckminster Fuller.  But you should hold your jaw from dropping until you see the full project completed by 2016, valued at $2.2 billion…that’s a lot of luxury va-va-voom. 

Design District properties have shown again that the true magic kingdom is not Disney’s but Miami’s. An area that was not long ago a bunch of ran down warehouses where you would not even get out of your car after sundown is now one of the most glamorous spots you can imagine. The value of Design District properties has increased astronomically adding in many cases more than one zero.  The big question for real estate investors appears to be “where will these visionaries go next?”, but the real question is “do you have the guts to follow them?”. Keep in mind that when they started, there was absolutely nothing there indicating that this could become the trendiest luxury hub. It takes deep pockets or a gambling nature and an adrenaline personality to embark on that sort of risk, but although serious money is necessary to buy Design District properties now, you can still find interesting deals in the immediate surroundings. Counting on the expansion of the Design embracing its outskirts seems like a pretty conservative bid.
