A new study by CBRE Group & Maastrict University ranked Miami 9th in the nation for green commercial real estate. 19.4 percent of new towers and development projects have been green certified. This correlates to 79 buildings and 21 million square feet of office space with either U.S. Green Building Council LEED certification or Energy Star labels. Public policy & client demand for sustainable building materials and practices have led this surge, which adds eco-chic to the growing list of attributes attracting foreign and local investors!

This month in Miami Beach Trends: Waterfront properties are home to several local and international celebrities who are lured by beautiful views and water access. Prices for these homes are at the highest level in 5 years. Non-waterfront are just as marketable with the strength of Miami’s luxury real estate market continuing to grow.

South Beach has been named the number one US beach and I cant argue with the desire to flock to Miami! The month of July especially brings tourists and locals alike for hot hotel penthouses like the St. Regis Presidential Suite, Independence Day celebrations, boating, nightlife, and a peek into Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Miami Swim Week July 17-21. This year we have the added draw of The World Cup Finals which will undoubtedly bring excitement to a feverish pitch! I encourage you to catch July 4th fireworks from 73rd and Collins Avenue. The area will feature family-friendly activities and a free concert. Once the sun goes down, youll marvel at the incredible fireworks erupting over the water.
