Architect Stars Come To Miami

November 1st, 2013

This November 7th, The Real Deal will host a Starchitecture Roundtable Event, featuring award winning architects like Bjarke Ingels of Bjarke Ingels Group and Chad Oppenheim of Oppenheim Architecture + Design.

The purpose of the roundtable is to deliberate key aspects of the NEW Miami condo boom, the selling points used by developers, and what buyers seek the most. The term starchitects describe architects whose influence have made them idols and a selling point for new condo projects.

The Event:

Fittingly, The Real Deal’s Starchitecture Roundtable will take place at Grove at Grand Bay, which is located on 2669 South Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove. The event will begin promptly at 6 PM, where a cocktail party will follow between 7-9PM.

Taking the stage are some of the top names discussed above. Bjarke Ingels for instance, is a Danish Architect whose work includes Grove at Grand Bay. It’s an ultra-luxurious condo featuring butler services, 24-hour concierge and more. As depicted in the renderings, the twin towers will feature unique angles that complement the surrounding district.

In addition to Ingels, Chad Oppenheim, the name behind Ten Museum Park in Downtown Miami is set to speak to guests in attendance. Oppenheim is also the mastermind behind many successful projects throughout the nation and world including in Miami, Dubai, Lebanon and other cities.

Land Banking in Miami & Florida

October 31st, 2013

Land banking includes the acquisition of land space that’s held or sold for future development. Miami’s and Florida’s land banking has surged in recent years. Prices also have increased as developers bid for practical land spaces to build upon.

As an example, The World Property Channel revealed that SWIRE Properties, the company at the helm of the multibillion Brickell CityCentre project, went up against unexpected contenders for a site, which was eventually acquired by the developer for $65M in July 2013. This is just one of the many examples of recent bidding wars among developers.

Before banking on land, check out the following tips:

      • Check local zoning requirements. Some raw land spaces are preapproved for certain uses. If plans are otherwise, check with the County zoning department to determine if a master plan can be negotiated.
      • Check local permits required to build on these spaces.
      • Survey land.
