Miami ranked among most expensive world cities

Posted by on Aug 22, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Miami ranked 14th globally by London-based Knight Frank

Article by the Real Deal

 

miami wall streetMiami has been ranked 14th on a global list of the nation’s most expensive real estate by London-based Knight Frank, a residential and commercial real estate consultancy.

And it’s no surprise that the report credits Miami’s high prices to foreign buyers, according to CBNC.

“Miami’s ultra-luxury condo market — where prices start at $10 million — is performing better than the overall luxury market from a price perspective,” noted Peter Zalewski, a principal with the Miami real estate consultancy CraneSpotters. “The recovering economy and the surging stock market in the United States combined with economic and social strife overseas in places like Argentina, Russia and Venezuela are working to create competition for ultra-luxury real estate in popular but stable international destinations like Miami.”

There are currently 45 Miami condos on the market priced at or above $10 million, Zalewski told CNBC. And in the first seven months of the year, five units in that price range sold.

Wall Street Making a Killing of South Florida Rentals

Posted by on Aug 21, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

Investment firms turning distressed properties into rentals — and jacking up the rates

Article by the Real Deal

Miami RentalsSouth Florida rentals are lining the pockets of Wall Street investors, who bought up distressed properties during the housing crises and are now leasing them out at top dollar. And rents could go even higher.

“If you look at how rents have gone up steadily, constantly since 2009, it seems like rents could continue to go up,” Peter Zalewski, the principal of CraneSpotters, told Miami Today.

Rents are currently peaking in Greater Miami, with asks east of Interstate 95 in Miami-Dade increasing by 24.3 percent since 2010 to $1.74 per square foot. Meanwhile rents west of I-95 have increased 17.7 percent to $1.33 per square foot, according to CraneSpotters data.

“What we’re seeing is the largest transfer to real estate from Floridians – taxpayers, homeowners and residents – to Wall Street investment firms and foreign investment firms,” Bruce Jacobs, a Miami foreclosure attorney and host of the “Debt Warriors” radio show, said.

New Coconut Grove Playhouse Concept Pitched

Posted by on Aug 11, 2014 in Blog, Coconut Grove Real Estate, Neighborhoods | 0 comments

Group led by attorney Eidson envisions two-theater complex at historic site

Article by the Real Deal

Coconut Grove PlayhouseAttorney and longtime arts supporter Lewis “Mike” Eidson is leading a group pitching a two-theater complex on the site of the historic Coconut Grove Playhouse.

Under Eidson’s proposal, a 750-seat theater would be added to the 300-seat venue already planned for the site. A parking garage and office space would also be included. Eidson estimated the expanded complex has a $45 million total cost.

Eidson suggested Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts as the operator of the larger theater, according to the Miami Herald. The 300-seat theater is set to become the new home of GableStage, based on the January state approval to transfer the shuttered theater and surrounding land to Miami-Dade County and Florida International University. The county is receiving proposals from architects for the new theater.

The chairman of the Performing Arts Center Trust and a former Coconut Grove Playhouse board member, Eidson envisions “a civic center dedicated to great theater in a modern playhouse complex” at the 3500 Main Highway site.
