Picture of Miami the next Singapore

Miami, the next Singapore?

08 Jan 2015

Capped as one of America’s most culturally diverse cities, Miami is becoming the new Singapore or the next London. It’s fast emerging as an international city with foreign dollars supporting the economic boom.

Miami’s history consists of a series of property rumbles and crumbles since its inception just over a hundred years ago. Before the crash in 2006, Miami’s real estate industry induced more than 20,000 units of condominiums to a sparse downtown.
What’s happening now?
In a radius that spans less than four square miles, Miami is hosting development of 69 residential condo towers with 18,400 units. Financed by foreign investors, the construction is projected to surpass the last economic boom, and ultimately make new economic records.

Today differs from the past in that not only residential condos, but also retail and several entertainment complexes, are being developed at an overwhelming pace. Large scale projects range from the $1 billion Brickell City Centre to the $2 billion Miami Worldcenter.

Cities like Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Houston and New York are going through similar construction explosions. However, Miami is quite different since developers are focusing on foreign buyers looking to purchase luxurious condominiums.

Foreign conglomerates and oligarchs are drawn to Miami’s international reputation as having elite nightlife, fashionable celebrities, and jet-set lifestyle and events. One such attraction is the annual Art Basel show that attracts the uber-rich every December.

Besides attractions for the ultra-wealthy, international crowds from Latin America, Russia and Europe can quickly find close-niche neighborhoods filled with speakers of their native language. Miami is also a safe place to escape foreign economic turmoil, political unrest, and high crime rates. Another benefit is the warm weather, tax incentives, pristine beaches, and sundry restaurants.
Miami is transforming into a diverse city of young professionals who are adding to the creative work and play culture. Demographics are changing to an average age of 37. The future of the city is unforeseen, but there is a positive vibe among the many city-dwellers. Development is even moving to surrounding cities, pushing property values up and expanding the city limits.
