The Great Recession has faded quickly into the background and the
construction cranes are back. It seems it was only yesterday the real estate
market bubble burst. Today, a totally different picture has emerged. It
stands in stark contrast with the rest of the country and has obscured the
plight of many neighborhoods in our own backyard — trapped still by an
uneven economic rebound driven by forces outside our borders. The Brickell
Corridor is ground zero for a dramatic new wave of real estate development
that’s transforming the skyline of Miami’s Financial District and spilling
over onto the Downtown Miami and Design District areas. Fed by the
voracious appetite of foreign investors and their relentless infusion of
foreign capital, massive new projects are rising or ready to rise ever higher
and faster than ever before. Visitors are perplexed and astonished by the
evolving panorama of the area. Henceforth, it’s vital that foreign investors
ease the uncertainties of the market. They should seek both an experienced
real estate agent and a competent title professional to guide them through
the complexities of acquisitions. With this synergy, the real estate industry
will continue to flourish in South Florida and beyond.
