The Scoop on Miami Real Estate

The Miami-Dade County real estate market continues to grow at a rapid pace. Billions of dollars are being put towards the development of residential communities and commercial buildings that are outline the Miami skyline. In fact, Miami-Dade County is considered one of the hottest markets in the country right now and the demand for quality developers is high.

Exciting Real Estate Projects

Real estate projects are coming to completion and new developers are breaking ground every day. Urban planning has been a driving force in many of Miami’s latest buildings. Sitting high on the list is the push towards the improvement of public transportation to help reduce the amount of congestion caused by vehicles. Exciting projects include the Miami River Walk, Pier 19 Residences & Marina, and the Underline.

CMC Group’s Contribution

A significant contribution to Miami comes from developer Ugo Colombo’s premier luxury real estate company, CMC Group. Their latest project, Brickell Flatiron, stands to be one of the tallest luxury condominium towers south of the Big Apple and is projected to be completed this summer. Giving residents of Miami-Dade County the option to walk out of their condo to shops, restaurants, parks and even work without stepping inside their car is a goal that fuels Colombo’s projects, along with luxury living.

Miami has become a cultural hub and has what it takes to attract both domestic and foreign buyers. The lifestyle in Miami is often compared to that of New York City, but anyone who lives there can attest to its unique environment and lifestyle. If one thing is for sure, the future of Miami-Dade County is promising for both developers and residents.

The Future is Now in Miami Real Estate

Miami is one of the best cities to live, work and play in. The city offers promising tax advantages, a lifestyle like no other, beautiful weather, beaches and so much more. For developers, the market is promising. Location is key to a successful project and Miami offers just that.

Miami Real Estate

The younger generations are influencing the urbanization of cities like Miami, L.A., and New York. Living downtown is perfect for millennials who do not have vehicles and prefer using rideshare apps or walking to their destination. For those moving to Miami, they get the best of both worlds between the Miami lifestyle and the convenience of living in a city. Residencies are filling up in downtown projects quicker than they can build new ones.

Ugo on Luxury Living

According to Ugo Colombo, luxury is subjective and doesn’t necessarily have to translate to expensive. Luxury should bring comfort to a person and that can mean many different things in terms of style and design. His dream home is located in Miami, his favorite part about it is the view. It’s the original Carl Fisher estate and when making it his own, he kept it simple. He worked with an Italian architect to preserve the colonial style, but also modernize it.

Ugo Colombo is the developer behind Miami’s latest luxury condominium project, Brickell Flatiron. The 64-story luxury condominium tower is one of the tallest south of the Big Apple.
