TRANSIT TALK will feature a small panel of local transit advocates and professionals that will facilitate a conversation on transit issues in Miami. The upcoming Transportation Summit (a separate event happening on June 6th) is a key topic — this pre-summit summit will provide information on what to expect and how to most effectively address transit issues. Other topics of interest include pedestrian and bike safety, walkable streets, and the current state of Miami-Dade’s transit ecosystem. Ideas sessions to directly follow discussion.
You can live the Mad Men office dream right here in Miami. Check out this great office space that was built in in 1958 and looks to be completely preserved. It’s like taking a step back in time. The 5,000 sq ft office space is currently available for lease. The office is located at 570 NE 81st Street.
The new owners of Biscayne Plaza are moving fast on their new acquisition and it looks like Subway will be the first new tenant. Global Fund Investments and MMG Equity Partners are the new owners and it appears they are retrofitting the existing structure to be more retailer-friendly with floor to ceiling windows.
Knocking down wall and installing floor to ceiling windows. Smaller bays make sense.

The construction cranes have returned to the urban core and condos are back to selling like hotcakes in mostly all cash deals to foreigners. The market is on fire. Last Wednesday evening developer Alan Ojeda unveiled his latest project, The Bond. By 3:00am nearly 1/3 of the units had been reserved.

As many of you know I work for StreetEasy and last week I had the pleasure of interviewing Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, Managing Partner at Cervera Real Estate. We talked about some of the data we uncovered in StreetEasy’s Q1 Miami Residential Market Report, but also chatted about the urbanization of Miami that has occurred in Brickell and downtown during the past 10 years. Alicia has a wonderful pulse on the market and she discusses the lasting impact that Brickell CityCentre will have on the urban core. This is the first of three videos with Alicia Cervera that will be released in the coming weeks.
