Mid-Block’s Conversion A Highlight Of 2013

November 20th, 2013

Gold Krown Financial strategically converted what was once residential rental units to condos for a growing housing market. Due to the nature of the development, the firm is able to offer starting prices at a lower mark, according to a statement by the president, Sam Beznos.

The property was previously a distressed asset, taken over in a foreclosure by HBSC in 2011, and then purchased by Gold Krown Financial’s developers and partners for use as conversion to condos.

Mid-Block is part of the Midtown Holdings, which has experienced phenomenal sales success at sites like 2 Midtown and 4 Midtown. Townhomes and lofts are currently available, and the renovated condo building will feature a pedestrian-friendly community with access to street fairs, green markets, office spaces, shops and more. Mix-use Live/Work lofts are available on 3rd floor only. Mid-Block is furthermore reminiscent of New York’s SoHo district according to its website.

Amenities include a washer and dryer in each unit, impact-resistant glass windows, stainless-steel appliances in Italian style kitchens, oversized closets, master baths in select units, airy terraces overlooking city streets and more.

Miami’s Got Tech Talent Says USA TODAY

November 18th, 2013

Miami may not be the next Silicon Valley but it’s getting pretty close. Tech startups and the spirit of entrepreneurship are sweeping an old factory district in Miami, and transforming it into a place where creatives can carve a name for themselves. This district we speak of is known as Wynwood Arts District.

USA Today ran an article describing the promising atmosphere it now exudes. While Miami may be renowned for lazy days, hot temps and beautiful sceneries, prodigies are springing up and are itching to make a mark.

The LAB MIAMI for instance, is a tech startup featuring shared workspaces. And if you need any indication of growth, its recent 10,000 SF expansion speaks volumes on the influx of entrepreneurs coming in. Wynwood is also a mega magnet for top art lovers worldwide. Each year it hosts Art Basel satellite fairs, bringing in millions to the local economy.

Some of the key benefits of settling in Miami for work and home life – that you won’t find in other startup destinations like New York, Denver or San Francisco, is the year-round sunny weather, less competition, and lower costs of living.

The missing piece of the puzzle however are phenomenal success stories like Facebook, Google or Apple. But the article advises that entrepreneurs should keep pressing forward with this entrepreneurial energy. It’s how success stories are built. While Venture Capitalists lean towards established locations, Miami now has strong ties to Latin American investors. A good example is LiveNinja, which has recently secured half million in funding. The Knight Foundation is also a huge advocate of Miami startups and has since invested $4M in 2013.

Palm Beach Good Life

November 18th, 2013

The good life in the Town of Palm Beach is a second home haven with warm winter retreats for the mega wealthy.

West Palm Beach was historically the service city for Palm Beach’s mega wealthy but now West Palm Beach’s waterfront and Downtown living is also considered luxury living.

Palm Beach County is littered with mega wealthy communities. There’s also Wellington, Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens, Delray Beach and Boca Raton.  Boca Raton is fast becoming a leading tech hub in South Florida. Palm Beach, like its sister counties Broward and Miami Dade, is still growing with room for significant appreciation over the next 3-5 years.

Some fun facts about this metro include:

  • During winter seasons, the population of Palm Beach County is an estimated 10.8 Million.
  • Florida’s highest per capita income resides in Palm Beach.
  • The city is a retreat magnet for millionaires. Examples of the mega wealthy who reside in Palm Beach County include Jimmy Buffet, Donald Trump and Bill Gates.
  • Premium Arts & Entertainment includes Norton Museum, The Society of The Four Arts, Henry Morrison Flagler Museum, The Armory Art Center, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, and world class dinner lounges such as the decadent HMF at the Breakers Hotel, and other fine dinning favorites such as Buccan, Palm Beach Grill and Table 26.
  • According to ExpoShips, 25% of wealthy globals head to South Florida each year.
  • If Miami’s Design District now has the label of being a luxury shopping row, Palm Beach’s Worth Ave is wittingly aliased “The Rodeo Drive of the East Coast”, with big names like Chanel, Gucci, Armani, Hermes, and over 200 shops and galleries included. Miami’s Lincoln Road retailer Babalu has recently opened its Worth Avenue location in Via Mizner, confirming the stretch of South Florida Luxury demand.
  • Palm Beach residents are renowned for philanthropy with many donating to charities and non-profits, more so than any other population.
