The Brickell Flatiron is Officially Open

Ugo Colombo’s latest real estate project, the Brickell Flatiron, is officially completed. This building is a 64-story, 527-unit tower, and is a beautiful contributor to the downtown Miami skyline. This project broke ground in early 2017 and has since gone through exceptional progression to become the beautiful building you see today. Ugo’s passion for Miami real estate combined with Luis Revuelta’s eye for design has created a real estate masterpiece. The interior architect Massimo Iosa Ghini created a seamless transition from exterior to interior by introducing the concept of fluid, continuous space.

Successful Outcomes

The CMC Group has received its temporary certification of occupancy which means that closings will begin right away. The Brickell Flatiron is about 95 percent sold, with more than half of that percentage consisting of domestic end-user buyers. The lowering of deposit requirements to 30 percent at the beginning of this year has attracted more U.S. buyers to the building. This project has been a success story and Ugo Colombo already has another project in the works which is sure to be another beautiful contribution to the Miami skyline.

The Latest Trends of Miami Real Estate

In the early 1990s, Ugo Colombo saw the investment opportunity in Miami real estate, and now it is starting to reach its full potential. According to Norada Real Estate Investment, Miami real estate appreciated 57.70% over the last ten years, which is an average annual home appreciation rate of 4.66%, putting Miami in the top 10% nationally for real estate appreciation. Despite the downward motion nationwide in the housing market, Miami real estate appreciation rates are strong and have continued to appreciate in value faster than most places. The real estate market in Miami is doing well and has seen a dramatic increase in office locations.

Offices are Taking Over

Office development in Miami has hit its highest level since 2009, which is partially caused by the relocation of tenants from high-tax states. According to The Real Deal, 1.9 million square feet of office space is expected to be completed in the next two years. As of 2011, only 500,000 square feet of office space was expected to be completed, as opposed to the nearly 2 million square feet that is now expected. On top of the relocation of tenants from high-tax states causing this change, it is thought that corporations wanting to expand their Latin American business could also be another reason for this shift.

If you are thinking of investing in Miami real estate, especially in office space, it seems as though the statistics and numbers are on your side. Miami continues to become a “mini-Manhattan” and is seen as a good investment opportunity for the future.
